Recognized for his versatility to portray different characters in various film genres aside from his famous role as British agent James Bond, Pierce Brendan Brosnan is certainly deserved to be named as one of the most accomplished Irish actors in Hollywood film industry, or maybe even the world. Born as the only son of Thomas and May Brosnan on May 16, 1953 in Navan, Co. Meath, Ireland, little Pierce had been forced to face some bitter experience during his early life which was started from the departure of his father from the family when he was barely one year old. At the age of 4, his mother also left him to work as a nurse in London, therefore made the kid had to undergo a nomadic life, moving frequently from one place to another to live under the nurture of assorted relatives and friends. It was not until the year 1964 that he finally could rejoin May who then took the 11-years-old boy to settle in Putney together with her new husband, a Scottish World War II veteran named William Carmichael.
