For all you James Bond fans, the Bond movie franchise wouldn’t be half as appealing and interesting as it is had it not been for Pierce Brosnan, the actor who took the league of the ‘007’ movies ahead. But did you know that this Hollywood superstar is actually Irish? Don’t get stunned for this is just the beginning of lots more Irish actors who are doing wonders at the big screen. Do you know that ‘Taken’ actor Liam Neeson who starred in ‘Batman Begins’, ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Schindler’s List’ originally worked as forklift operator for Guinness? He also served as a truck driver, assistant architect and amateur boxer before finally making his footfall in theatre. Since his debut in ‘The Risen People’, there has been no looking back for Neeson. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a jewel of Ireland’s acting fraternity. Crowned as the best actor of Ireland in 2008, Meyers has been one of the most talented actors that Ireland has been served as the home of. ‘Mission Impossible III’, ‘Match Point’, ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ are some of the most prolific films of this ace actor.
