LOS ANGELES – Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan is celebrating his 64th birthday today.

The actor is famous for his role as James Bond in four movies of the spy-thriller franchise.

The former 007 star, born in Navan, Ireland, was first introduced to James Bond when he was taken to see Goldfinger by his step-father. Since the 1970s, Brosnan has been acting on stage and screen before landing the breakthrough role of Remington Steele in ’82 and the James Bond title role with 1995’s GoldenEye.
