Natasha Richardson dies at 45 years old, leaves Liam Neeson and family behind


Natasha Richardson dies after being taken off of life support following a ski accident that occurred in Canada earlier this week.

Here's what E! Online had to say:

“A small private funeral” is planned, according to friends who spoke earlier to E! News on behalf of the bereaved family.

The wife of Liam Neeson and daughter of Oscar winners Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson was hospitalized Monday in Montreal after a fall during a ski lesson. Richardson, accompanied by Neeson, was flown Tuesday to New York and admitted to Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was pronounced brain dead.

"Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha," Neeson's rep, Alan Nierob, said in a statement. "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

Some of my favorite films of Natasha Richardson include: Patty Hearst, The Parent Trap and Maid in Manhattan.
