Most of you have already been apprised of this, but Natasha Richardson passed away today, from complications arising from a skiing accident. Her husband, Liam Neeson — through a publicist — released this statement: “Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
Richardson, who was only 45, was the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave. She found moderate success in Hollywood in films like The Parent Trap and The White Countess, but she was considered more of a stage actress. She also portrayed Patty Hearst in a biopic.
I have no idea what else to say, except that she was a classy lady with impeccable poise, and it’s a damn shame we lost her.
