10th Anniversary of Pierce Brosnan becoming James Bond marked
On June 8, 1994, Pierce Brosnan was announced as the new James Bond 007 at the now famous press conference in London.
Here are some snippets from the Assoicated Press article. (From MI6)
PIERCE BROSNAN IS NEW JAMES BOND
June 8, 1994
The producers of the immensely successful Bond movies said Wednesday they had cast the 41-year-old star as agent 007 for the 17th Bond film, ``Goldeneye." True to form, it will feature Russians, an evil megalomaniac and plenty of beautiful women. ``It's set in today's Russia," New Zealand-born director Martin Campbell told a news conference. ``It's the Russia of arms dealing, the mafia."
Brosnan said his Bond would keep many of the most popular characteristics of the spy, who preferred his martinis shaken, not stirred and who could emerge from a wet-suit with immaculate dinner jacket uncreased. ``He will still have his license to kill, his lethal side."
Timothy Dalton won the role instead but only made two films. ``It's taken me eight years to get here but here I am," said Brosnan, sporting a decidedly un-Bondlike beard, long hair and black shirt. But he reassured purists the beard would be removed for filming.
Let's just hope it will be 11 years when Bond 21 comes out next year!
"Get busy livin', or get busy dyin'."
