Hopper, Island Hopper: Pierce Brosnan Brings Bond Back to Greece

September 15, 2023

ATHENS – He’s moved on from his icy portrayal of super spy James Bond to high-profile character roles, but Pierce Brosnan took time off from the film world to take a vacation in Greece, including a stop in Kavala and visiting islands.

Bond – when he was played by Roger Moore – was shown in Greece in ‘For Your Eyes Only’ – Brosnan being himself in a visit along with billionaire hair care product owner John Paul DeJoria, whose mother is from Kavala.

Brosnan was gracious in posing for photos with adoring fans during a tour of Lesbos, Ios, Patmos – and on the tiny island of Lipsi, where a resident, Rena Paradis, was in a shot with him and posted it on Facebook.

He was with his wife and friends and couldn’t help escape notice while touring, people so wowed that they were shaken and stirred.
