Pierce Brosnan: ‘I Hated Being Bond’
Posted by Adam
PIERCE Brosnan doesn’t think he did a very good job as James Bond.
Brosnan was cast as Bond in GoldenEye, released in 1995; he remained in the role for a total of four films, before leaving in 2002. In 2006, Daniel Craig was given the role of Bond for Casino Royale, which rebooted the series.
“It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me,” he said.
“The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn’t have a follow-through of reality, it was surface.
“But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.
“I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. ‘Cause it’s just never good enough.
“It’s a horrible feeling.”
