Pierce Brosnan has suffered an eerily familiar tragic loss.
The actor's daughter Charlotte died Friday at 41 after battling ovarian cancer, the same disease that claimed her mother, Cassandra Harris, in 1991.
"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Brosnan said in a statement obtained by E! News. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."
He continued: "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."
Charlotte, who died in London, was one of Harris' two children from a previous marriage whom Brosnan adopted after their father passed away in 1986. He and Harris had another child together, son Sean, and he has two sons, Dylan and Paris, with wife Keely Shaye Smith.
