A terrible loss occurred in the Brosnan family last week, when Pierce Brosnan’s daughter, Charlotte Brosnan, was overtaken by ovarian cancer and passed away in London. Charlotte Brosnan, 41, was a mother of two.
Her mother and grandmother both passed away from ovarian cancer as well.
Pierce Brosnan’s late wife, Cassandra Harris, died from the terrible disease in 1991.
The 60-year-old looked on his daughter’s life with sentimentality.
“On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer,” he said. “She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas, and brothers Christopher and Sean. 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.”
The James Bond actor was rushed to his daughter’s side in the middle of filming “November Man” in Eastern Europe, according to the Telegraph.
Charlotte and her brother, Christopher, were adopted in 1986, after their father died. Brosnan agreed that their family was a cohesive unit, despite the biological differences.
“We just clicked as a family. Charlotte and Chris have just been amazing in my life,” Brosnan said to the Daily Express.
Brosnan had to deal with cancer once again in his newest film “Love Is All You Need,” where he plays a character that falls in love with a hairdresser who has cancer.
Speaking on the difficult undertaking of that role, he didn’t deny that it was a hard task to face for him.
“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,” Brosnan said.
But his daughter didn’t leave this world with nothing left behind. Her husband, Alex, and her children, Isabella, 15, and Lucas, 8 survive her.
