Pierce Brosnan’s daughter Charlotte has passed away last week  from ovarian cancer aged 42 after a three-year battle with the disease. Her mother, Cassandra Harris, died from the same type of cancer in 1991 while married to Brosnan. Charlotte’s passing comes 22 years after her mother Cassandra died of the same disease .

Pierce reportedly told PEOPLE:

“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.”

“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.”

James Bond star Pierce, now 60, married Cassandra, an Australian actress and former Bond girl, in 1980. They had Sean together in 1983. She had been married before and had two children, Charlotte and Christopher. When their father died in 1986, Pierce adopted them and they took his surname.

In a previous interview, Pierce said:

“We just clicked as a family. To begin with I was Pierce, then I was Daddy Pierce, and then I just became Dad. Charlotte and Chris have just been amazing in my life.”

In 1987, while filming in India, Cassandra became seriously ill. She was later diagnosed with cancer and died in December 1991.

Pierce married second wife, journalist Keely Shaye Smith, in 2001 and they have had two children together, Paris and Dylan.

Earlier this year Brosnan talked about new film Love Is All You Need – about a widower who falls in love with a hairdresser suffering from cancer – and said he drew on his own traumatic experiences with the disease.

He told her how Cassandra’s death left him distraught, forcing him to bring up their son Sean, then eight, alone.

“I went through it all, very publicly,” Pierce said. “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.”

Friends last night paid tribute to Charlotte who lived in West London with her family.

Actor Robert Davi, who starred in Licence to Kill, said of Charlotte’s death: “Been informed my friend Pierce Brosnan lost his daughter to an illness – my prayers and love go out to him and his family.”

Pierce’s former Remington Steele co-star Stephanie Zimbalist also wrote on Facebook: “Sad news to announce. Please join us in sending love, prayers and sympathy to Pierce Brosnan and his family for the death of his daughter Charlotte.”

Charlotte’s brother Sean, also an actor, was unavailable for comment but his agent Miles Anthony said: “My thoughts and prayers are with my client and friend Sean Brosnan who lost his beautiful sister Charlotte over the weekend. Love you buddy.”
