Liam Neeson and Vanessa Redgrave gathered to watch New York City’s Broadway lights dim for Natasha Richardson, who died Wednesday after a tragic skiing accident.
Joined by actor friends Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick during the touching tribute, Neeson shielded his eyes under a baseball cap, the London Telegraph reports.
The New York City Medical Examiner told Usmagazine.com Thursday Richardson, 45, died from a “blunt impact to the head” after the Monday tumble near Montreal. Her family released a statement Wednesday saying they were “shocked and devastated.”
On Thursday, her uncle Corin Redgrave said he hoped she would be remembered as a “wonderful, very glamorous person and a very beautiful person.”
Broadway star Patrick Wilson told Us Richardson was “a fantastic talent” at the revival of West Side Story Thursday night.
Although Richardson starred in movies — and wed her husband after Nell — she was acclaimed for her theater work, and won a Tony after appearing as Sally Bowles in Cabaret.
Said In The Heights actress Lin Manuel Miranda: “It’s a tragic loss…I was a huge fan of her work. So it’s just really unbelievably sad. I wanted to see her next thing.”
Kathleen Turner told Us, “I’m just heartsick.
“I loved her. We knew each other, we liked each other. I admired her work, she admired mine. I thought she was a terrific person. It’s just shocking.”
