Eliza Taylor has told how Pierce Brosnan helped ease her nerves on the set of new thriller The November Man.

The 100 actress admitted she felt nervous about working with the James Bond star, but he literally welcomed her with open arms.

Eliza revealed: "It was fantastic. It was so fun. We shot in Belgrade in Serbia, and I play the love interest of a young spy."

The former Neighbours actress gushed: "Pierce is amazing, he's such a gentleman, I had the best time shooting with him.

"My first day on set, I'd just arrived in Serbia, I was speaking another language, I didn't know anyone and I was standing by the make-up trailer feeling nervous and this man in a suit comes bounding up to me and I'm like 'Ah! It's Pierce Brosnan!'

"And he just gave me a big hug and said, 'We're so happy to have you, I don't know if anyone's told you that yet, but I'm really glad we found you'."

The November Man also stars former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and is due out later this year.

Eliza stars in new E4 drama The 100 which begins on July 7.
