Los Angeles, July 12 (IANS) Actor Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte died recently of ovarian cancer and this forced him to re-live the tough times that he faced after his wife Cassandra's death, says his friend Bron Roylance.
Brosnan's wife Cassandra also died of the same disease in 1991.
"Charlotte's illness came with a darkness because Pierce was re-living the past. He was having to re-live the whole nightmare of this horrific disease. Pierce is dealing with Charlotte's death, but in reality he is beyond devastated," People magazine quoted Roylance as saying.
However, Brosnan's second wife Keely Shaye Smith is supporting him and Roylance is confident that the actor will fight and move on from the tragedy.
"It's true love. During the tough times they are both beacons of strength... He's got an inner quality that allows him to continue. He will continue to be a husband and a father. He will continue on with his life," he said.
