After a three-year battle with ovarian cancer, Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte has died, the actor told People on Monday. She was 41.
"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Brosnan told the magazine in a statement. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, her children Isabella and Lucas and her 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," the actor continued. "We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences."
Charlotte's mother, Cassandra Harris, was Mr. Brosnan's first wife and also died of ovarian cancer in 1991.
