Last night my mom called to tell me that Natasha Richardson had died. I was shocked, to say the least. The last I’d heard, she was in critical condition, but doing alright after arriving in New York. She comes from a family of actors. She comes from the Redgrave family with her mom being Vanessa Redgrave and her aunt is Lynn Redgrave. She not only comes from acting royalty, but has been married to Liam Neeson since 1994 and they have 2 sons.
I can’t imagine how bad her injuries were. Natasha walked away with only a few scratches, only to die soon after. The helmet issue has resurfaced since this incident. It was a big topic when Sonny Bono died years ago of an injury on the slopes. I’m not quite sure where I stand with this issue. I’m not a skiier, but I can’t imagine wearing a helmet while skiing either.
I just know that the acting world lost a very stellar actress with the death of Natasha Richardson. I never saw a picture where she wasn’t smiling. She was classy and she didn’t make news in the tabloids. It was clear to see, at least in pictures, that her and Liam Neeson were in love and happy. She may not have been seen on the screen alot, but she does have a valued career between the big screen and the stage.
She’s in God’s care now. I wish all the best to her family and friends as they go through this tragedy together. Peace Natasha!!
