Tragic Loss

t04i-4-129

Unfortunately Natasha Richardson, of the famous Redgrave acting clan was pronounced dead yesterday (Wednesday, March 19, 2009).  She died of blunt impact to the head, an epidural hematoma.  Her injuries were obtained during a private skiing lesson in Quebec on Monday.  Although they were beginner’s slopes.  Natasha was not wearing her helmet.  She leaves behind husband, actor,  Liam Neeson and two sons.  She was the daughter of famed actress Vanessa Redgrave and English theatre and film director Tony Richardson and sister of actress Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck).

Ironically and unfortunately enough, one of Liam’s minor roles is sort of playing out.  In Love Actually, in which he is apart of the ensemble cast in this new Christmas classic, Liam Neeson’s character is a recent widower struggling to deal with the recent loss of his wife and raise his stepson.

Thoughts and prayers with their family.

    Natasha’s passing is a bit scary, especially since no one could tell that anything was wrong at first
