Due to injuries sustained during a skiing accident [news.bbc.co.uk]

A real tragedy. Rest in peace.

I keep thinking about Liam Neeson's character in Love Actually, and can't help but think how bitterly ironic life can be sometimes.

Apparently, she had no obvious injuries from the skiing accident until much later. Just a freak and terrible accident.

Reading an article this morning, I thought the same exact thing about Love, Actually - sad irony. The reports seemingly went from "she's going to be fine" to "brain-dead" in an instant...very sad.

She was incredible in Cabaret. She did a better job than Liza Minelli, and she was the gold standard.

It is really sad, and I agree with everyone on the irony of the Love Actually coincidence. Let's hope that one day he finds his Claudia Schiffer.

It gets sadder (wwtdd.com):


    Breitbart News says today that the first ambulance called to help Natasha Richardson after the fall that led to her death was turned away, presumably at her request, because at the time she showed no signs of injury. Another ambulance was called later but by then it was too late.

(image removed) Just awful. From what I've read she sounded like a really sweet person.

This is especially sad to read because Sound & Vision magazine did a profile of Richardson and Neeson's home theater just a few months back that also did a great job of profiling the couple's home life.

Doesn't seem to be available online, but you might check your local library if interested.
