Actor Pierce Brosnan is soldiering on with filming commitments for his new thriller November Man, days after losing his daughter to cancer. The Thomas Crown Affair star broke the tragic news to fans on Monday (01Jul13), revealing 42-year-old Charlotte Brosnan had died on Friday (28Jun13) following a three-year battle with ovarian cancer - the same disease which killed her mother, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, in 1991. Brosnan's new project recently began shooting on location in Belgrade, Serbia and instead of taking time off to grieve his daughter's death, the actor was back on set on Tuesday (02Jul13) to work alongside his co-star, former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko. The Ukrainian beauty revealed the news to fans via her Twitter.com blog as she shared the adventures of her first day on set. She wrote, "Survived stunt driving and explosions today next to ex mr James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) Tomorrow I'm the one driving! Watch out!!!" Charlotte was Harris' daughter from a previous marriage, but Brosnan adopted her and her brother Christopher as his own after their father's death in 1986.
