So in Pierce Brosnan’s case, we’ll tell you all you need to know about his life as well as Pierce Brosnan’s wife, down below.
Pierce Brosnan’s Marriage History
Brosnan has actually been married twice, of course, we’d think this because of how most of the Hollywood actors are. Truth be told, Keely Shaye Smith is the wife he’s been with for 25 years now and he tweeted on 19th July on the anniversary of Keely Shaye Smith and Pierce Brosnan together,
“Thank you for the love, my love of these past 25 years, onwards…”
Who was Pierce Brosnan wife before Keely Shaye Smith
So the questions naturally arise in our head, what’s up with his first wife? How did it all end and do they have kids together? Don’t worry, we got you covered.
So Pierce Brosnan married an Australian actress; Sandra Colleen Waites who was born on 15th December 1948, died on 28th December 1991. Cassandra since she was professionally known as Cassandra Harris had one son with Pierce Brosnan; Sean Brosna, born in 1983.
At that time, Pierce’s first wife already had two sons from another man. The sons were adopted later by Pierce Brosnan; Charlotte and Christopher after their father died in 1986.
About Cassandra, Brosnan’s first love, he states:
“What a beautiful looking woman. I never for an instant thought she was someone I’d spend 17 years of my life with. Didn’t think of wooing her, or attempting to woo her; just wanted to enjoy her beauty and who she was.”
What happened to Pierce Brosnan wife
But unfortunately, Pierce Brosnan wife died because of ovarian cancer back in 1987. This was the same disease for which her own mother died, too. And as crazy as it may seem, Cassandra’s daughter; Charlotte died from ovarian cancer too. This was on 28 June 2013. Just like her mother, she too was only 42.

Pierce has never been shy of speaking of his love for his wife
“My wife and I took a short road trip up to Santa Barbara. We were going for a romantic weekend and to look at houses and drink great wine. We didn’t listen to any music, but we just listened to the sounds of each other’s voices and sorted out the world.”
How romantic is that?!
In another interview, expressing his love for his wife, Brosnan says:
“She has this strength that I wouldn’t be able to live without. When Keely looks at me, I go weak.”
Now even though a lot has changed, from physical appearances to everything else. We believe strictly that love can still be found and irrespective of how and what someone looks like.
