Quote by Pierce Brosnan
From '86 until the summer of last year, wherever I went, people would say, You would have made a great James Bond! Weren't you going to be James Bond? You should have been, you could have been, you may have been. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. It was like unfinished business in my life. I couldn't say no to it this time around.
In this quote, the speaker conveys that there has been an ongoing public fascination with them potentially playing the iconic character of James Bond. They mention that people have constantly expressed their belief that they would have been an excellent fit for the role, creating a sense of unfulfilled aspirations in their life. This repeating affirmation from others made it impossible for the speaker to decline the opportunity to play the famous spy, as it felt like an important endeavor they couldn't resist anymore.
