Pierce Brosnan mourns his 'darling daughter' Charlotte, 42, who died after three-year battle with ovarian cancer
Pierce Brosnan’s daughter Charlotte has died of ovarian cancer aged 42 after a three-year battle with the disease.
The actor paid tribute to his "darling daughter" in a statement which read: “On June 28 at 2pm my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer.
“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.”
Charlotte’s mother Cassandra Harris, Brosnan’s first wife, died from the disease aged 43 in 1991.
The actor adopted step-daughter Charlotte and her brother Christopher in the 1980s after the death of their father and both children took Brosnan’s name. Brosnan and Cassandra had another son together, Sean, in 1983.
The James Bond actor married second wife journalist Keely Shaye in 2001 and the couple have two children together.
Charlotte is survived by her daughter Isabella, 15, her son Lucas, eight, and long-term partner Alex Smith.
