Actor Pierce Brosnan's Daughter Dies of Ovarian Cancer
About 22 years after losing his wife, Cassandra Harris, to ovarian cancer, Irish star Pierce Brosnan has lost his daughter, Charlotte Brosnan, 41, to the same disease. The actor shared the news on Tuesday in a statement toPeoplemagazine, saying, "On June 28 at 2 P.M. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer. She was surrounded by her husband, Alex, children, Isabella and Lucas, and brothers, Christopher and Sean." He continued to say that his daughter "fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity," and he prays a cure for the "wretched disease" comes soon.
Before marrying Brosnan, Harris was an Australian actress, Bond girl and mother to two children, Charlotte and Christopher. In 1980, she wed Brosnan, who adopted the kids after their biological father died in 1986. "We just clicked as a family," he said earlier this year, praising the kids as being an incredible part of his life. He and Harris went on to have Sean together. Ironically, in his most recent film,Love Is All You Need, the actor takes on the role of a widower who falls for a hairdresser suffering from cancer. He said Harris's death and his personal experiences made the role realistic. "To watch someone you love have their life eaten away–bit by bit, by this insidious and horrid disease–becomes an indelible part of your psyche," he said.
Stars reached out on social media to share their condolences with the family.
