Famous Irish Eltonites

Pierce Brosnan was born on May 16, 1953 in Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland. At 20, he enrolled in drama school and while in London, performed in several West End stage productions. After graduating from the Drama Centre in 1975, Brosnan began working as an acting assistant stage manager at the York Theatre Royal, making his acting debut in Wait Until Dark. Within six months, he was selected by playwright Tennessee Williams to play the role of McCabe in the British première of The Red Devil Battery Sign. In 1982, Brosnan moved to southern California and rose to popularity in the United States playing the title role in the NBC romantic detective series Remington Steele. He first appeared as Bond in 1995's GoldenEye to much critical praise. His most successful and delightful non-Bond outing came in 1999, when he played the title role of the millionaire art thief in director John McTiernan's classy remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair".

He attended the Elton John's 60th Birthday Party.
