Of medical complications from a head injury in a ski accident. She was only 45. A representative issued this statement: “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.” I know her husband Liam flew in (from his movie shoot Chloe), her mother Vanessa Redgrave was already in NYC, joined by her sister Joely Richardson, to be by Natasha’s side at Lenox Hill Hospital. Such a talented family. Life is so unfair. She was beautiful and accomplished and charismatic. Star of stage, screen and film, she won a slew of acting awards, including a Tony. But I loved her most in The Handmaid’s Tale and The Parent Trap because they showed her range. If it hadn’t been so tragically cut short, she would have had a long and esteemed career.
