Natasha Richardson has passed away

Last night we got word that Natasha Richardson has succumbed to her injuries. The family released a brief statement:

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.

Appreciations for Richardson’s work and career have come from all quarters, including Entertainment Weekly, the Los Angeles Times and director Ken Russell. EW also has a gallery of her key roles.

Our sympathies to Neeson, their sons, and their friends and family.

    Don’t mess around with head injuries, guys — really, really, get them checked out right away, even if you feel fine. :(

  2. My heart is saddened for the family of Natasha Richardson, especially for her sons. I pray that GOD keeps her family near his bosom while they deal with her death.
