"On June 28 at 2pm my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life having succumbed to ovarian cancer," Pierce told Us Weekly in a statement. "She was surrounded by her husband Alex, her children Isabella and Lucas and her brothers Christopher and Sean."

Pierce was married to Charlotte's mother -- Australian actress and Bond girl Cassandra Harris -- from 1980 until her death in 1991. Cassandra and her own mother both died of ovarian cancer.

Cassandra had two children, Charlotte and her brother Christopher, from a previous marriage. Pierce adopted the kids after their father died in 1986.

"Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity," Pierce's statement continued. "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."
