R.I.P. Natasha Richardson

with 5 comments

Natasha Richardson, a beloved British actress from one of the world’s great acting families, was announced dead today after a skiing accident on Monday.

Richardson was in Canada taking skiing lessons from an instructor, when she fell on a beginners’ ski trail during the lesson at the Station Mont Tremblant resort. The instructor called the ski patrol and everything seemed to be fine. The 45-year old was escorted to her hotel room soon thereafter, when she announced that she was “not feeling good” and was taken to the hospital. Richardson walked in on her own, joking and laughing. On Tuesday, an unidentified source from the hospital reported that she was sedated and her brain was swelling, thus a possible cause to her shocking death on Wednesday (today).

Richardson’s performances ranged from the high-brow drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” to the lightweight comedy “The Parent Trap” and the Tony-winning Broadway production of “Cabaret.” She’s married to actor Liam Neeson, and is daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave and the late film director Tony Richardson.

It’s sad that many of us tend to take life and the ones we love for granted, and need occurrences like these to remind us to appreciate what we have. May she rest in peace.
