About this title

Synopsis:

Named "The Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine, international superstar Pierce Brosnan faced countless challenges on his journey to success. Here is his story -- the true adventures of the actor whose debonair charm has breathed new life into James Bond -- and whose talents continue to delight audiences around the world.

Born into a humble background and a broken home, young Pierce suffered harassment and abuse at the hands of other children-the unfortunate byproduct of being an Irish boy in a London school. As a young man, he doggedly pursued his dream of being an actor. Despite having none of the valuable industry connections that would have smoothed his path, Pierce did have one invaluable asset -- the undying love and support of his future wife, Cassandra.

As he worked hard to establish himself and start a family of his own, Pierce was faced with yet another challenge -- his beloved Cassandra was stricken with cancer. While they faced the illness together, Pierce got his first big break on American television, his starmaking role as Remington Steele.

Pierce managed the tricky transition from television to movies, but couldn't shake the regret that he'd missed his chance to play the one character he felt he was meant for -- Agent 007. Little did he know that opportunity would arise again. And again, he'd make his dreams reality.

Having endured the tragic loss of Cassandra, Pierce embraced fatherhood as a reason to carry on -- and found his career accelerating still further with his stunning success as James Bond and in The Thomas Crown Affair. Meanwhile, a new love had entered his life in the form of Keely Shaye Smith...and soon his family grew with the joyful birth ofanother child. As Keely and Pierce planned their nuptials, a frightening and unexpected accident brought things to a standstill. The strength of character that helped make him a star would have to get Pierce past one more obstacle on his path to happiness...
