The actor was seen sporting a white beard and greying hair for a day of filming in London for the thriller based on Stephen Leather's novel The Chinaman.

The Navan-born star is playing ex-IRA member turned government official Liam Hennessy in the upcoming movie.

The, as-of-yet, untitled project sees Brosnan pair up with director Martin Campbell, 20 years after they worked together on Goldeneye.

The caption said: "Farewell my Darling Beau Marie... We made memories in the movies we made, and a deep friendship in the life we shared...into the Dreamtime you go now...love and always love..."
