Actor Pierce Brosnan who is portraying the role of a politician in his new flick ‘The Ghost Writer’ believes that his role is inspired by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
The Bond star claimed that he closely studied and researched about Tony Blair to perfect his role.
The film is an adaptation of British novelist Robert Harris' contemporary political ‘The Ghost’ and Brosnan believe that the author had based the main character on Tony Blair.
According to sources, director Roman Polanski had assured the actor that his role as Adam Lang is not based on the former British Prime Minister, but the 53-year old star was not convinced.
Pierce Brosnan told, "I hopped on a train and met Polanski and the first question across the table was, 'Am I playing Tony Blair?' He said, 'No, you're not playing Tony Blair'.
"However, all roads, indications, emblems and stories seemed to point to him, so I looked at Tony Blair, his performance of Tony Blair being prime minister and his persona," he added.
