Natasha Richardson 1963-2009
In a tragic turn of events, actress Natasha Richardson has passed away following a skiing accident two days ago.
Richardson, who was 45, won a Tony for her portrayal of Sally Bowles in a Broadway revival of "Cabaret" ten years ago.
She was married to Academy Award nominee Liam Neeson and was daughter of Academy Award winning legend Vanessa Redgrave who were with her at the time of her passing according to The New York Times (full story here).
A combination of British grace and wordly charm, her filmography included a Patty Hearst biopic, the last Merchant Ivory film and "The Parent Trap" which was the first time I ever saw her onscreen playing mom to Lindsay Lohan's separated twin sisters.
May she rest in peace.
