On July 1, 2013, Pierce Brosnan announced another tragic lost of a female loved one had taken place due to ovarian cancer—his daughter Charlotte, 41, according to E! News.
In 1991, her mother, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, died from the disease at the age of 43.
Brosnan released a statement about his daughter’s passing, which read, “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.”
The actor added, “Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humility, 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. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.”
According to E!, Charlotte was one of Harris’ two children from a prior marriage. Brosnan adopted them after their father died in 1986.
The Daily Mail reports that Brosnan still grieves for the death of his first wife, even though she passed away 22 years ago.
He told the publication, “I went through it all, very publicly… Such things draw a mark across your heart and it’s always a part of your life. 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…”
E! reports that ironically, in Brosnan’s latest movie, “Love is All You Need,” he plays a widower dating a woman who is battling cancer.
