Pierce Brosnan has just finished playing the role of Dr. Fate in a sci-fi action movie Black Adam. In this role, the actor plays a superhero and sorcerer in the DC Universe.

However, the 69-year-old actor made sure to keep some things from his personal life the same as his role. He wore his wedding ring and a watch his wife Keely Shaye Smith had gifted to him many years ago.

He explained in an interview saying, “This is our wedding ring and this is a watch that Keely bought me many years ago with an inscription that [reads], ‘Time flies on love’s wings,'” He further added, “I decided to wear it for this character. It seemed appropriate.”


He explained that it was appropriate for his character as he had a wife too, which is why Brosnan decided to keep these personal items on during filming. He said,  “The man [has] traversed the ages of time. He’s one of the most powerful sorcerers in the DC comic book world. He did have a wife called Enza, and she was even more powerful than him I hear.”

His wife was obviously thrilled at the subtle yet sweet tribute her beloved husband gave to her in his latest film project. She said, “I love those emblems, that he took those with him into the superpower, superhero realm.”

The couple have quite an endearing love story themselves. They met in Mexico in 1994 and married one another in 2001 at Ballintubber Abbey in Ireland. They share two sons together, 25-year-old Dylan and 21-year-old Paris.

Over twenty years later, they are still crazy about one another as can be seen by Brosnan’s decision to make a sweet tribute to his wife in his on-screen role.

This is such a sweet story. Pierce Brosnan is truly a gentleman in every way!
