Pierce Brosnan‘s son Sean is opening up about his struggle with addiction, the devastating loss he’s experienced — and his eventual path to sobriety.
Brosnan lost his mother, Cassandra Harris, to ovarian cancer when he was only eight years old. “I remember the day my dad told me she passed, and it was a few days after Christmas,” Sean, 35, recently said on the Inner Space with Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen podcast. “He started to cry, but I didn’t cry. I was comforting him at eight.”
“It wasn’t until maybe six months later where I was in school and realized while I was walking to class, she is never coming back,” he recalled. “That is when it transitioned into anger.”
