Natasha Richardson Critically Injured in Ski Accident
Natasha Richardson has been critically injured in a skiing accident in Canada.
The English actress and wife of Irish native Liam Neeson suffered a traumatic brain injury, a source tells IrishCentral.com. Richardson was due to appear next year in a Broadway revival of A Little Night Music alongside her mother, Vanessa Redgrave.
It's yet to be determined whether or not Neeson is with Richardson at the Montreal hospital where she is being treated. The Oscar-nominated actor has had his own run-in with injury; Neeson suffered a broken pelvis in 2000 after his motorcycle collided with a deer outside New York City.
In addition to her scheduled stage performance, Richardson's TV and film credits include Evening, Maid in Manhattan and The Parent Trap, in which she starred opposite Dennis Quaid — and co-parented a pre-pubescent Lindsay Lohan.
