Brosnan loses daughter to cancer

It was with great sadness that we heard the news of another tragic loss for Pierce Brosnan and his family last week when Charlotte Harris Brosnan, the daughter of Bond girl Cassandra Harris, died of cancer on 28 June. Charlotte, a mother of two, was 41 years old.

In 1986, the father of Charlotte and her brother died and Brosnan, who had married their mother Cassandra in 1980, adopted them. Sadly, in 1991, their mother and the wife of Pierce passed away from ovarian cancer, the same form that now claimed the life of Charlotte. The mother of Cassandra, Charlotte’s grandmother, also died from ovarian cancer.

Charlotte’s mother, Cassandra Harris, will of course forever be remembered for her role of Countess Lisl von Schlaf in For Your Eyes Only. There is undoubtedly a striking resemblance between the mother and daughter.
