Goodbye, Natasha Richardson!

small_natashaI was shocked about the death of British actress, Natasha Richardson, earlier when the news came out in my television and Internet. Also, she’s the wife of actor Liam Neeson. She was injured from skiing accident that lead to her death. Earlier at 7:00pm EDT, Liam Neeson’s publicist Alan Nierob made a statement to the press and said, “Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

Natasha Richardson was born in London, England on May 11, 1963. Her parents are late Tony Richardson (director/producer) and Vanessa Redgrave (also an actress). She started to appear in a movie entiled “The Charge of the Light Brigade” since 1968. After 18 years of absence in movie industry, she came back to appear in a movie “Gothic”. One of her significant movie called “Nell”  where Richardson starred alongside with Liam Neeson (as his future husband in real life) and Jodie Foster. Aside her acting career in movie and theatre, she’s active in advocacy for fighting against AIDS after the death of her father, Tony Richardson suffered from AIDS in 1991. From 1983 to 2005, she also participates in theatre. Natasha’s significant achievement was Best Actress in a Musical at Tony Awards for the production of “Cabaret” in 1998.

For me, it’s a big loss for her in entertainment industry. I pray for Natasha’s soul for what happend earlier. Condolence to Liam Neeson and his two sons.
