Natasha came from a long line of Hollywood greats – both parents, Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson, are Oscar winners; sister Joely is a successful actress, as is aunt Lynn Redgrave. The 45-year-old actress leaves her husband of 14 years, Irish actor Liam Neeson and two sons, Michael, 13, and Daniel, 12.
Natasha died following an seemingly harmless fall on a beginner’s ski slope in Quebec, Canada, on March 16. After developing a headache an hour later, she was taken to a local hospital, before being transferred to a Montreal hospital and then airlifted to New York on Tuesday.
The family released the following statement several hours after Natasha succumbed to her injuries: “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.”
