Liam Neeson, Vanessa Redgrave Watch Broadway Lights Dim for Natasha


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 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.”
