Pierce Brosnan has become a Special Patron for Unicef in Ireland.
He says his aim is to help as much as possible in Unicef's ongoing war on child poverty.
Brosnan told Ananova: "This is something I have wanted to do for a long time, to give something back. I am especially interested in the tragic impact of who are always the innocent casualties of conflicts.
"In the last 10 years more than two million children have died as a result of wars. More than six million children have been injured or permanently disabled.
"My role will be to help Unicef Ireland in whatever way I can, to highlight this and to ensure that Unicef continues to be able to provide emergency relief and assistance to these children."
Brosnan's fellow Irish movie star Liam Neeson is also a Unicef patron.
