Q: Can you tell me what Pierce Brosnan has been up to? I’ve really enjoyed watching his career since his turn as James Bond, and I am eager to see what he’s got coming. -- Pamela R., via email
Childhood was fairly solitary. I grew up in a very small town called Navan in County Meath. I never knew my father. He left when I was an infant and I was left in the care of my mother and my grandparents. To be Catholic in the '50s, and to be Irish Catholic in the '50s, and have a marriage which was not there, a father who was not there, consequently, the mother, the wife suffered greatly. My mother was very courageous. She took the bold steps to go away and be a nurse in England. Basically wanting a better life for her and myself. My mother came home once a year, twice a year. 
The actor, who was trained as a commercial artist, has painted numerous landscapes as well as colorful portraits of his family. After Brosnan left school, he pursued a career in art and began working as an illustrator. “I always wanted to be an artist, a painter. I started as a Trainee Artist in a small studio in South London.” A colleague suggested that Pierce attend a theatre workshop, and eventually he abandoned his artwork to pursue a career in acting.
