The James Bond star says he hopes for a cure for the “wretched disease” that killed his daughter Charlotte as well as her mother.
Pierce Brosnan’s daughter Charlotte has died of ovarian cancer at the age of 41 after a three-year battle with the disease.
Her mother, Cassandra Harris, died from the same type of cancer in 1991 while she was married to Brosnan.
Harris also lost her own mother to ovarian cancer when she was a teenager.In a statement issued to People magazine, Brosnan said his “darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life” on June 28.
“Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl,” he said.
“Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity.”
Brosnan adopted Charlotte and her brother Christopher after their father died in 1986.
Cassandra Harris died in 1990 at age 43. Charlotte had been suffering from the disease for three years.
