Pierce Brosnan took over the role of James Bond in 1995's GoldenEye, and in the new EPIX documentary Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007, he reveals his initial apprehension over saying the legendary line, "The name's Bond. James Bond," for the first time on camera.

"You walk onto the set and it's your first time – all eyes are on you," explains Brosnan. "You didn't want to screw it up."

The star says that the performances of Sean Connery and Roger Moore entered his mind, and "in the end I didn't fight them. I just let them in. … Just say it and own it as much as you can."
