Pierce Brosnan was a born star.

This week, we poured through the archives way back to 1978, where we meet a young Pierce Brosnan modelling in London.

Then just 24 years old, the Meath native was living in the UK and focused on making it in showbiz.

And make it he did - with an impressive turn as James Bond from 1995 to 2002, contributing to his $80 million net worth and cementing his permanent A-list status.

But back then, he was just like any other aspiring actor, doing whatever the photographed asked in order to show his range.

In these newly unearthed photos, we see his early comedy skills...
