Natasha Richardson (1963-2009)

Bloody sad news.

Natasha Richardson, wife of Liam Neeson and star of such films as “The Parent Trap” and “Wild Child”, has died at the age of 45.

Richardson, who made her film debut in 1968’s “The Charge of the Light Brigade”, was involved in a skiing accident earlier this week, resulting in a very severe head injury. She died Wednesday.

A member of the Redgrave acting dynasty — and a Tony winner for “Cabaret” in 1999 (She was Sally Bowles) — Richardson was skiing at Mont-Tremblant near Montreal when she suffered a seemingly minor fall during a ski lesson.

The actress felt fine, but later complained of a headache and was hospitalized, then flown on Tuesday to the U.S. with swelling of the brain. Her family’s decision to take her off life support was announced Wednesday.

Neeson had flown from the set of his new film “Chloe” to be by his wife’s side.

Richardson’s other film credits include “Nell”, co-starring her husband and Jodie Foster, “The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Maid in Manhattan” with Jennifer Lopez, “Evening” and the telemovie “The Mastersons of Manhattan”, which aired in 2007.
