A third woman in Pierce Brosnan's life has died from ovarian cancer.

The Hollywood star's producing partner and friend Beau St Clair passed away of the disease on January 9 aged 63.

Brosnan's first wife, Cassandra Harris, died of the same cancer aged 43 in 1991.

Her daughter, Charlotte (42), who Pierce adopted, died of ovarian cancer in 2013.

Brosnan and Beau worked together for more than 20 years and produced hits such as The Thomas Crown Affair together.

"Beau was the sister I never had, my dearest friend for 30 years, and my producing ­partner at Irish Dreamtime, a company we formed 20 years ago," Brosnan said in a statement.

"Beau Marie was a beautiful woman in every way.

"She had style, grace, humour, intellect, and a kind heart that I will forever miss.

"I feel privileged to have worked alongside and collaborated with Beau Marie. Making films together was our dream come true," he added.
