Pierce Brosnan loses daughter Charlotte to ovarian cancer

02-Jul-2013 • Actor News

Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte has died at the age of just 42. The mother-of-two passed away at her London home on Friday after a three-year battle with ovarian cancer - the same disease which killed her mother Cassandra 22 years ago.

In a statement, Mr Brosnan said: ‘On June 28 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. 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. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.’



Charlotte was adopted at age 9 by the actor after he married her mother, Cassandra Harris, who later died at the age 43 from the same disease. She leaves behind her husband, artist Alex Smith, daughter Isabella, 15, and son Lucas, 8.
