Film Quiz Fridays: Pierce Films

Share this Article:

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for 30 more film quiz questions, including a round on the works of Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £4.99: right here!

Pierce Brosnan once said: “Acting allows me to explore new worlds, to discover characters by delving into their lives, and ultimately to become someone else entirely.” While exploring one of those worlds as tough guy Mark Taffin, he also said “What goes on in this town is none of your business”, to which Alison Doody said, “As long as I’m living here, it is my business”, so he bellowed “THEN MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T BE LIVING HERE!”

We still have questions about that magical line delivery, but more relevantly, we’ve got questions about Brosnan’s other movies among this week’s usual film trivia selection. Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. Please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Questions will commence after we watch that bit of Taffin again…
