I am incredibly saddened by this. re: Tragedy Strikes as Natasha Richardson Passes Away at 45
These pictures are making me cry. I was thinking about watching one of her movies in her memory, but I'm gonna be bawling the whole time.

I was lucky enough to have seen her in "Cabaret" the day before she won The Tony in June of 1998. She was beyond brilliant!

Her performance as Sally in "Cabaret," is probably the best performance I've ever seen. All these years later, it's clearly etched in my brain as it I just saw it yesterday. She was extraordinary!

Very, very sad.

Her rendition of the title song to Cabaret takes on a whole new meaning now.

Peace be yours Natasha. Tragic and sad, too young and talented to be taken away.
The only review of a show that matters is your own.

I can't even describe how sad I am over this. It really hit me hard. RIP Natasha- your light has dimmed too soon, but I shall always remember your beauty (both inner and outer).

That picture of her and her mother is so sad. There's another with Vanessa Redgrave talking to a 4 year old Natasha. I can't imagine what it's like to bury a child.

Sadly, I never got to see her onstage, but I enjoyed her on film and admired her beauty and grace. She is a true loss.

NBC just gave a heartwarming segment on her, nicer than the others, much more sincere.

I keep thinking about the picture posted of Natasha and Vanessa. In most of the pictures posted here and in articles, she (of course) looks very beautiful and glamorous. But in that one, she just looks like a girl with her mom. That poor family.

May her beautiful family wrap themselves in the love that she shared for them and that showed in all of her performances.

The only thought that keeps playing in my head over and over is "what a loss." The elegance and grace she had, her brilliant talent and spirit will be missed deeply.


This is heartbreaking and my prayers go out to the Redgrave family.
RIP Natasha Richardson. ~You were a light on this earth ~

I still can't grasp the fact that she's gone.

It's just so terrible. What an awful loss. She was an incredible woman.

If we are feeling this devastated, imagine what her family and children must feel.

How lucky we all were to have had her as long as we did and to have seen so many of her wonderful performances.

This is really devastating. I've been a fan since I was 12 years old and first saw The Parent Trap.
