Cassandra Harris (15 December 1948 [1][2] – 28 December 1991) was an Australian actress.

Born Sandra Colleen Waites in Sydney, Australia, Cassandra Harris was a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. She enrolled in 1961, aged 12, under the name Sandra Gleeson. She went on to perform in the successful Sydney stage production of Boeing Boeing from 1964 to 1965. She appeared in The Greek Tycoon (1978), Rough Cut (1980), and the James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only as the Countess Lisl von Schlaf, the ill-fated mistress of Milos Colombo (played by Israeli actor Topol). While filming this movie, her third husband, Pierce Brosnan, met with producer Albert R. Broccoli, which eventually led to his casting as James Bond in four James Bond films.

Harris guest starred in several episodes of the television series Remington Steele with her husband Brosnan, to whom she was married from 1977 until her death in Los Angeles, California from ovarian cancer, at the age of 43.

She had three children; Christopher and Charlotte Harris, from her second marriage to Dermot Harris — a younger brother of the actor, Richard Harris — and son Sean Brosnan, from her third marriage to Pierce. Christopher and Charlotte were adopted by Brosnan after Dermot Harris died in 1986.

It was Cassandra's wish that her husband Pierce Brosnan should play the role of 007, but she died four years before he made his debut as the agent in GoldenEye. [1]
