A few days before passing away from the same illness that claimed her mother’s and grandmother’s lives, Charlotte Brosnan was secretly married.
In 2013, the then-42-year-old married her artist boyfriend, Alex Smith, after being led down the aisle by her father, Pierce Brosnan.
Sadly, she lost her battle with ovarian cancer two weeks later.
Charlotte initially gained notoriety at a young age for being the child of Cassandra Harris, a “Bond girl” who appeared in the film “For Your Eyes Only.”
Charlotte and her brother Christopher were adopted by Pierce when their birth father passed away in 1986.
They adopted his last name before receiving a half-brother when their mother and Pierce produced a son named Sean.
Ovarian cancer, which had already taken the life of Cassandra Harris’ mother, was discovered in 1987.
Cassandra tragically succumbed to ovarian cancer in 1991 at the age of 43.
According to accounts, Charlotte’s mother’s death significantly impacted her. She had numerous challenges, including depression and drug problems, due to seeing her mother gradually lose the fight against a horrifying illness.
According to The Famous People, Charlotte booked herself into a rehab facility in England in 2003 to receive treatment for her drug and alcohol addiction.
Charlotte pursued acting in the same career path as her parents, but ovarian cancer would return to stalk her life.
Charlotte went through a challenging course of therapy after learning that she had the same illness as her mother.
Charlotte was able to keep her attitude up during that time.
Sadly, Charlotte lost the fight on June 28, 2013, while her family was by her side. Her spouse Alex, children Isabella and Lucas, and brothers Christopher and Sean were all by her side when she passed away.
Charlotte married Alex, her true love, just a few days before she tragically passed away. In a private ceremony with only the couple and their loved ones present, they married.
Although it looks so depressing now, a family friend who was present at the wedding stated it was a lovely occasion.
The most emotional day of my life, she said. It wasn’t a day for melancholy. Pierce and Alex were grinning widely.
Pierce sent a statement in remembrance of his “darling daughter” after Charlotte’s untimely passing. It still has meaning for us now.
According to The Guardian, Brosnan stated, “On June 28, my beloved daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to everlasting life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer.”
“Her husband Alex, kids Lucas and Isabella, and brothers Christopher and Sean were all around her.”
Charlotte fought her cancer with a remarkable combination of dignity, bravery, and grace. Our loss of our lovely, sweet girl has left us with aching emotions. We pray for her and that treatment will soon be available for her terrible illness. We appreciate everyone’s sincere sympathy.
A few days after giving his daughter away to her boyfriend, Alex Smith, the former James Bond actor had flown back in the middle of filming for the 2014 movie November Man to be by his daughter’s bedside.
Even though Charlotte isn’t here now, her children have reached adulthood.
For instance, Isabella, her 21-year-old daughter, resembles her late mother in beauty.
I sincerely hope she is okay and never has to go through the same struggles as her mother and grandmother.
Cancer is a dreadful illness, and we must fight it.
