Pierce Brosnan is returning to work following the death of his daughter, Charlotte, from ovarian cancer.
The actor was seen on set Tuesday shooting action scenes in Belgrade, Serbia, for the upcoming film November Man, a spy thriller based on the novels by Bill Granger.
According to a press release, the movie follows an ex-CIA operative who is brought back in on a dangerous mission, pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving CIA and Russian officials.
Brosnan, 60, reportedly left the set to be with his daughter during her final days. Charlotte, who was 41, passed away in London on June 28.
“Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity,” Brosnan, who lost his wife and Charlotte’s mother to the same disease in 1991, said in a statement. “Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon,” the actor continues. “We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.”
