Natasha Richardson 1963-2009

Tragically, award-winning actress Natasha Richardson has passed away earlier today. The forty-five year old wife of actor Liam Neeson fell while skiing with no apparent injuries yesterday but later fell ill and eventually passed away.

I first saw her in Ken Russell’s surreal Gothic as the young Mary Shelley and was later impressed with her in the title role of Patty Hearst. She became of one the best working actresses around especially with A Handmaid’s Tale and Nell, the latter in which she starred with her husband and Jodie Foster.

We have certainly lost one of our most talented actresses. She will be missed.
