This Liam Neeson love quote is perfect for thinking of love near Valentine’s Day or anytime. Married to his wife Natasha Richardson, who was also an actor, the two were married for 15 years before her death in 2009. Neeson knows what it was to love his wife deeply and the pain that came from her sudden and tragic death.
Natasha Richardson came from a famous family–the Redgrave family; she was the daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave and director/producer Tony Richardson. After marrying the American actor, she and Liam had two sons.
It was a tragic day when Richardson incurred a head injury at the Mont Tremblant Resort in Mont-Tremblant near Montreal, Canada. She fell and hit her head while taking a beginner ski lesson. The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office issued a statement after her body’s autopsy that she died of an epidural hematoma due to blunt impact to the head. She was 45 when she died.
Sadly, it’s reported that after the fall, Richardson joked about the fall and refused to see a doctor. Although treated at an infirmary at the ski resort, Richardson checked out of the clinic. It was only hours later that the paramedics were called again.
The family issued this statement at her death:
“Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha,” read a statement released by her family, including husband Neeson, on Wednesday (March 18). “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
