A Video Interview With Pierce Brosnan

Together with his wife, Keely Shaye Smith, Pierce Brosnan has worked hand-in-hand with Dickinson's 2019 Rose-Walters Prize winner, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) for over 20 years, and he's excited to be honored by a college as dedicated to sustainability as Dickinson.

"My impression of Dickinson's sustainability [efforts] is so impressive, so heartfelt, so encouraging," says Brosnan, who received an honorary Doctor of Environmental Advocacy degree, accepted the Rose-Walters prize on behalf of the NRDC and delivered the college's Commencement address this year. "I'm absolutely blown away by the commitment of the students and the faculty to educate and enlighten, to enhance a better world for us all."

Find out how Brosnan's environmental activism stretches all the way back to his Remington Steele days and intersects with Ted Danson in this video interview conducted during Brosnan's recent visit to campus.
