Pierce Brosnan’s Daughter Charlotte Dies Of Ovarian Cancer At 41
Pierce Brosnan confirmed the death of his daughter Charlotte on Monday. Charlotte, 41, had been battling ovarian cancer.
"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Brosnan told People. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."
"Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon," the actor continued. "We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences."
Brosnan’s late wife and Charlotte’s mother, Cassandra Harris, died of ovarian cancer in 1991. Harris, a former Bond girl, lost her mother to ovarian cancer when she was a teenager. Charlotte and her brother Christopher’s biological father was Dermot Harris, the brother of actor Richard Harris, who died in 1986. Brosnan formally adopted them soon after his death.
Brosnan remarried with American journalist Keely Shaye Smith in 2001. They have two sons together – Dylan Thomas, 16, and Paris Beckett, 12.
Charlotte is survived by her husband Alex Smith, daughter Isabella, 14, and son Lucas, 8.
