Actress Natasha Richardson, of the legendary Redgrave family and husband to Liam Neeson (“Schindler’s List”), has died. She succumbed to brain damage that resulted from a skiing accident after being taken off of life support. She was 45.
Unfortunately, I am not as familiar with the work of Richardson as I was with another famous star who died a few months ago, Paul Newman. However, every time someone who greatly contributes to cinema passes away it is always worth honoring them. I do know now that I would like to see the work of this much-praised actress. For now, my condolences go out to Liam Neeson, their two sons, and the rest of Richardson’s family.
