Current James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has revealed that he learnt how to play James Bond by watching Sean Connery.
“I learned from Connery,” Brosnan said. “He is phenomenal. He knows the camera and he knows his strengths and he plays to them. He puts the hard graft in there, working on character, studies the story. Ultimately that is all you can do. I try at least to do as good a job as Connery has.”
Seemingly, Brosnan learnt acting skills from Connery not just applicable to the role of James Bond.
