Pierce Brosnan Discusses Losing His First Wife and His Daughter to Ovarian Cancer


Pierce Brosnan recently sat down with Esquire to openly discuss the personal tragedies that have influenced his outlook on life. The Irish actor lost his first wife, Cassandra, to ovarian cancer in 1991. The same disease sadly took his daughter, Charlotte, in 2013.

“I don’t look at the cup as half full, believe me,” Brosnan, 63, says. “The dark, melancholy Irish black dog sits beside me from time to time.”

After Cassandra’s death, Brosnan married current wife Keely Shaye Smith, with whom he shares two sons. He also has two sons from his first marriage.
