Hollywood news, right here.

Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte is believed to have died from ovarian cancer -- the same disease which claimed her mother Cassandra 22 years ago. She was 42.

James Bond actor Pierce married Cassandra, an Australian actress in 1980, and they became parents to son Sean in 1983. Cassandra was married earlier and had two children from that relationship Charlotte and Christopher, the Mirror reported.

When the children's father Dermot Harris died in 1986, Pierce adopted them and they took his surname.

Charlotte is now survived by her long-term partner and her kids, Isabella, 15 and eight-year-old Lucas.

Sources told the Mirror that the 27-year-old actor was travelling around with the woman for a while before they pulled into his drive in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.

It seems that the Twilight heartthrob may have a type as the mystery woman looked similar to his former girlfriend Stewart.
