Gone Too Soon - Natasha Richardson

Scribbled by Perky |

I was shocked to read on People.com about the death of actress Natasha Richardson due to a head injury after taking a fall on a ski trip. I feel just as sad as I was the time when the news of Heath Ledger's death broke out. I don't know them personally, but I do admire their work greatly.

I've only watched Natasha act on 2 movies (The Parent Trap and Maid in Manhattan). I absolutely loved her in Parent Trap because she was so classy, elegant and was really captivating to look at. Her performance was so memorable and her on-screen chemistry with Dennis Quaid felt so real that I've watched Parent Trap dozens and dozens of times.

My heart & prayers goes out to her family - husband Liam Neeson and their 2 kids, her mom legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave and her sister Joely Richardson (star of Nip/Tuck).

Natasha was only 45 years old when she passed away. Only the good die young...

Yup, CNN reported on the day she was injured that she was already in a coma and was only being kept alive for her close-ones to say their final parting words.

It's always sad to know of someone's passing. So many pics of Liam and her in warm embrace. :(

Honestly I only heard of Liam Neeson before this tragedy. Now I am thinking twice about skiing in Korea this coming WInter. I remembered almost getting killed when I skied during student days. It is so dangerous even at the safest spots.

Just remember to wear safety gear when you go skiing next time.

You almost got killed when skiing? Wat were you trying to do? 360degree jumps in the air ke? ;)
