Actor Pierce Brosnan is devastated after his daughter Charlotte died, aged just 42. The mother-of-two died after a three year battle with ovarian cancer - the same disease which killed her mother Cassandra 22 years ago - at her London home on Friday. Pierce, who has been filming a spy thriller, November Man, in Eastern Europe, last night 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.

My condolences. As I understand it, he’s a Catholic, so I hope his church is with him at this time.
Wow may she RIP. Too first lose his first wife to cancer and now his only daughter. May God comfort the family during this difficult time.
A father always wants to protect a daughter from the bad stuff in the world, sometimes he can’t.
I know several people who survived all their children. Just about the saddest thing one can have happen, at least in the ordinary things of life.
My oldest brother died of a heart attack in his early 60s and it devastated Mother to the point that we almost lost her too.
That is very sad, may she, and her mom, rest in peace and may her children and family find comfort.
Prayers for this nice family.
BTW, any freeper females out there who lost a mother or sister to this disease, particularly if they were not elderly when they passed, need to get tested for the gene connected with ovarian cancer. It’s a tough disease to diagnose early enough to treat effectively, and almost impossible to cure when the patient has symptoms.
Dad’s and daughters. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Sorry for Mr Brosnan’s loss.
My mother was alive then..and is still alive now.
We aren't supposed to out live our kids....
I have two....and pray for their safety often...
Man that really sucks..
What makes it worse is that he lost his first wife - his step-daughter’s mother - to cancer when she was 43 or so. That was about 22 years ago.
A lot of tragedy in that family. Charlotte’s father died when she was young and then her mother married Pierce Brosnan (who adopted her) and then her mother died. I am so glad that he adopted her so she had someone as a parent figure until her tragic death. He knows how hard it has been for her.
Pray for his and her family’s comfort.
I know a woman who lost both of her daughters; one to a sudden heart attack and another to a brutal murder. I don’t know how that woman survived it.
AND, to top that off, her husband (not the girl’s father) was recently arrested for child porn!
That’s a hard loss.
May she rest in Peace.
I’m very sorry for his loss. Not my favorite James Bond, but he is a very good Bond, indeed.
Very sad. May she RIP along with her mother. Prayers for the family.
That is very sad. God Bless.
And people were contemptuous of Angelina Jolie who has the BRCAGene
She did the right thing.
My sister and I have both had OBCA, no genemdetected but it is there for sure. And survival has improved!
Five years out in August for me and mine was grim. Stats are better and cures are happening.
He would have been a perfectly good Bond if he had not come along at the time when they were getting just a bit cartoonish.
He probably needed to be just a bit more muscular since he had to follow Connery who was a real man’s man.
The former governor of Maine, Kenneth Curtis lost both of his daughters to cystic fibrosis. I believe both he and his wife Polly are still living and in their late 70’s early 80’s.
The daughters died in their 30’s I believe.
Just terrible. No man should lose a child and no woman should suffer ovarian cancer.
Condolences and prayers to the family. May she rest in peace.
Thank you for the heads up. I wonder, does a Grandmother factor in? In my years of doctor appt., this fact has come up and no one has made a move about it. Thanks.
Somebody once told me that true happiness is first Grandfather dies, then Father, then the Son. Lot of truth in that.
I'm surprised, though, that as a mother she got ovarian cancer. It usually strikes women who have never had children.
I don’t think that isma true statement.
My dear friend in high school died in the early ‘70s at age 29 of ovarian cancer. She left a 3 year old and an 8 month old. Doctors thought it might have started during pregnancy.
The same thing that killed her mom. Damn. Poor Pierce.
Pierce’s granddaughter must be terrified.
This is Pierce’s stepdaughter. His late wife, Cassandra Harris, was older and had already had been twice married with 2 children by the time she married Brosnan (curiously, her ex-husband, the father of the 2, died back in the ‘80s). She appeared as a (Roger Moore) Bond girl in FYEO, getting mercilessly run down on the beach in the film. I would definitely be terrified if I were the granddaughter, with both grandmother and mother dying at 43 and 42.
Yeah the slutty Countess who pretended to not be an English girl.
Cancer risk is most significant when it has occurred among first degree relatives, that is, parents, siblings, or children.
Found this at Wiki:
She had three children; Christopher and Charlotte Harris by her marriage to Dermot Harris, and a son, Sean Brosnan (b. 1983), from her marriage to Brosnan. Christopher and Charlotte were adopted by Brosnan after the death of Dermot Harris in 1986.
Harris was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1987 and battled the illness for four years until she died from it on 28 December 1991, aged 43. Her daughter, Charlotte, also died of ovarian cancer on 28 June 2013 at the age of 41.
I heard on the news today that her grandmother died of it as well — three generations.
Sad beyond words.
May Charlotte Rest In Peace.
Women who have been pregnant and carried it to term have a lower risk of ovarian cancer than women who have not. The risk goes down with each full-term pregnancy. Breastfeeding may lower the risk even further.
I'm just going on what I've read and what my gyno says. Not here to argue.
