Charlotte Brosnan, daughter of legendary actor Pierce Brosnan, has died of ovarian cancer.
Charlotte Brosnan passed away over the weekend and, late Monday, Pierce released the following statement to People magazine:
“[Charlotte] 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”
Tragically, Pierce Brosnan’s wife Cassandra also died of ovarian cancer back in 1991, as did Charlotte’s grandmother when Cassandra was just a teenager.
