Pierce Brosnan has penned an emotional tribute to his “dearest friend” Beau Marie St. Clair, who has tragically passed away after losing a ten year battle with cancer.
The pair founded an LA based production company, Irish Dreamtime, together in 1996, but have been friends for a lot longer.
Beau, aged 63, passed away this weekend and Pierce has now taken to social media to share a picture of the pair, with a moving message.
“Farewell my darling Beau Marie. We made memories in the movies we made, and a deep friendship in the life we shared. Into the Dreamtime you go now. Love and always love,” he said.
In a statement to Variety magazine, Pierce continued his tribute, saying, “My dearest friend Beau Marie St Claire passed away from ovarian cancer. She fought this insidious disease valiantly for then long years.
“Beau was the sister I never had, my dearest friend for 30 years, and my producing partner at Irish Dreamtime, a company we formed twenty years ago.
“Beau Marie was a beautiful woman in every way. She had style, grace, humour, intellect and a kind heart that I will forever miss.
“To be able to live the life of an actor, to make movies that touch people’s hearts is one of the greatest gifts any man or woman could wish for. I feel privileged to have worked along side and collaborated with Beau Marie. Making films together was our dream come true.
“Beau Marie will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.”
