I was at work when I found out, and wanted to start crying. I was holding out so much hope.

Why why why do only the good die young? First Heath Ledger and now this.

Again, I feel bad for all family, friends, everyone, but it pains me to think about how Vanessa is handling this... It must pain her to know that she outlived her child and she had to watch her child die :/

I did not know that Natasha was as involved in supporting AIDS organizations, raising money for research, as she was. This link lists some details:

Thanks for all the wonderful pictures, everyone.
I am looking for some from the first time I saw her live in the Musical HIGH SOCIETY at the Victoria.
I didn't read the program cause I was having a Sherry and watching her I was totally stupified.
Also If you know her from THE PARENT TRAP, you HAVE to see her in GOTHIC diredted by Ken Russell and her uncanny performance as PATTY HEARST, directed by Paul Schrader.
Brilliant!
Oh and then COMFORT OF STRANGERS.
Amazing work.

She was an amazing actress. I, along with the rest of the world, mourn her loss.


On a side note, I think it's disgusting that Playbill.com does not have it as it's lead story.
...everyone was doing the mambo and drinking golden cadillacs...

so, so sad re: Tragedy Strikes as Natasha Richardson Passes Away at 45

I feel for her family. I had a friend who died due to head trauma - she was hit by a car but, nothing visible - she was actually 'knocked down' by a car (he stopped) and she was talking after the accident - Then the brain started to swell and, well, I need not go further. To hear of this accident and the terrible outcome, well, its just awful.

So sad. re: Tragedy Strikes as Natasha Richardson Passes Away at 45
She seemed to have such a happy family. And so talented. I was looking forward to A Little Night Music since I missed it earlier. Can't believe I just happened by chance to be watching Maid in Manhattan for the first time in a couple of years on Saturday.
What a freak accident. The pain her family must feel must be devastating. re: Tragedy Strikes as Natasha Richardson Passes Away at 45

How sad, my thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially her sons. I am sure Broadway will dim the lights for her.

I was so devastated when the news came out last night.

My heart goes out to Liam Neeson, their two sons as well as her mother, sister and entire family.

Natasha Richardson was a spectacular actress both on screen and onstage. Though hearing her in news reports after discovering her in "The Parent Trap" that her stardom was beginning to arise, I will always remember her for playing Lindsay Lohan's "mum", Elizabeth James. My prayers and condolensces go out to the family as they go through this time of sorrow.

PalJoey, I thought the same thing.

If we are as shaken as we are, imagine what her family and friends must be going through: if we fell in love with someone through a handful of stunning performances, imagine what it must have been like to know her.

So tragic. Just ... awful.

It does sound like something could have probably been done had they caught it in time. (My question-in ignorance because I am not a skiier-do they ever have medical professionals on staff at these lodges to do any preliminary examination?)

Also-FYI-on the NY Daily News (I know, not a great source) website, they said a public memorial will be held at a later date for Natasha.

It's so sad we lost such an amazing talent...and person. She was so kind and generous with her time when I saw her in Cabaret years ago. And she was amazing in the show. I never forgot that performance. (Or the others I saw her give.)

RIP Natasha and my thoughts to the Neeson/Redgrave/Richardson families.
