Pierce Brosnan Thinks Of His First Wife 'All The Time'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Pierce Brosnan admits that he's still struggling with the death of his first wife.
The actor, who's starring as a widower who falls in love with a woman battling cancer in "Love Is All You Need," reveals that the role has brought back a lot of memories concerning his wife Cassandra Harris' four-year battle with ovarian cancer 22 years ago. Harris, an actress, tragically died in 1991 at the age of 43.
Brosnan was crushed by the experience and was left to raise their then 8-year-old son Sean, now 29, by himself.
"I went through it all, very publicly," Brosnan, 59, explains to the Daily Mail. "Such things draw a mark across your heart and it’s always a part of your life. To watch someone you love have their life eaten away –- bit by bit, by this insidious and horrid disease –- becomes an indelible part of your psyche," he continues. "It certainly did for me and, of course, when I received this script, the challenge of playing this part was not lost on me."
