Pierce Brosnan’s daughter Charlotte died of ovarian cancer, the actor told People on Monday.

“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 was 41. Her mother, Cassandra Harris, was Brosnan’s first wife and also died of ovarian cancer.
