Natasha Richardson Has Passed Away

RIP Natasha Richardson

I'm sad to confirm that Natasha Richardson has passed away. A spokesperson for the family 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."

The 45-year-old actress was injured in a skiing accident near Montréal and taken to hospital near Mont Tremblant. Later in the day she was transferred to Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal, and then on Tuesday she was transferred to a hospital in New York so she could be closer to her family.

Reports that she was pronounced brain dead had been circulating, and it was confirmed today that her life support machine has been switched off. Natasha is the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and sister of Joely Richardson, she married her husband Liam Neeson fifteen years ago. She is survived by their two sons: thirteen-year-old Micheál and twelve-year-old Daniel.

Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this tragically sad time.
