"On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Brosnan, 60, tells People. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."

Charlotte was 41 years old when she died, last Friday in London. She'd been fighting the disease for three years. Her mother, Brosnan's first wife, Cassandra Harris, also died of the disease.

"Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity," Brosnan continues. "We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon."

Earlier today, People reported Brosnan has returned to work on the set of the spy thriller November Man.
