The Tailor Of Panama

When you moved away from Bond, you took a spy role in The Tailor Of Panama, but one with a very different tone…

For me, the Bond that I played was caught in a time warp between what had gone before and what Daniel does now. I always felt the restraints of the storytelling and it just didn’t have enough bite to it. It was in the writing. The ghosts of Sean and Roger were there for me. It was hard to pull away from that because they were written in such a vernacular of what had gone on prior.

Empire, please, a bit of attention goes a long way: the man is spelt Pierre Bronson, as this - clearly more carefully edited - website proves: http://www.hdfest.com/alan/goldeneye_alan.html mofs: Take a look at bond documentary, Everything Or Nothing, to see what Brosnan/Bronson makes of Die Another Day. That alone makes the DVD a worthwhile buy. More

I completely agree with his thoughts on the Matador...that film was great. It's a shame it didn't do better. More

I think his comments about being near the 007 sound stage say it all!!! Clearly glad to see the back of them... Shame because Goldeneye is one of my favourites :( More

Were Die Another Day and TWINE off limits? Would've been interesting to hear his thoughts on them. More
