Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan credits his faith for helping him through tough times, such as the death of his first wife.

The 61-year-old actor was left devastated when his first wife Cassandra Harris died from ovarian cancer in 1991 and his adopted daughter Charlotte succumbed to the same disease last year, and thinks his religious beliefs and upbringing have given him the strength he needed to carry on, reported New York daily News.

“I would say faith, being Irish, being Catholic, it’s ingrained in my DNA,” Braosnan said. The ‘Long Way Down’ actor, who is now married to Keely Shaye Smith, also admitted to being a keen artist.

“I paint landscapes, figuratives. I painted all my life. In fact, I started as a commercial artist,” he said.
