The former Bond star - who has five children including 12-year-old Dylan and eight-year-old Paris with wife Keely - plays Chiron The Centaur in Chris Columbus' fantasy flick, which also stars Uma Thurman, Rosario Dawson and Steve Coogan.

"They said, 'Dad, you gotta do it, you gotta do it!'" he told Entertainment Tonight at the film's New York premiere.

And his youngest son was thrilled when he saw the film for the first time.

"My eight-year-old said, 'It's the best film you've made, Dad'. That was like getting an Oscar," Pierce said.

:: Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief is released in UK cinemas on February 12.
