Bros­nan’s daugh­ter loses bat­tle with can­cer

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PIERCE Bros­nan’s step­daugh­ter has died of can­cer at the age of 41 – the same dis­ease that killed her mother.

The James Bond star, who lives in the United States, is re­ported to have flown back to the UK to be at Char­lotte’s bed­side.

The mother-of-two (above) died of ovar­ian can­cer on Fri­day af­ter suf­fer­ing with the dis­ease for three years.

Bros­nan’s first wife, Cassandra, was 43 when she died of can­cer in 1991.

The ac­tor, 60, adopted her chil­dren, in­clud­ing Char­lotte, when he mar­ried her in 1980.

The Ir­ish-born star said: “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.”

Bros­nan has two chil­dren with his sec­ond wife Keely Shaye Smith: Dy­lan, 16 and Paris, 12.
