Actress Natasha Richardson has died in a New York hospital following a skiing accident in Canada on Monday.
The 45-year-old was a member of the Redgrave family, arguably the most famous acting dynasty in British history. Her late father, Tony Richardson (left) was a successful director.
Richardson had spoken of how her mother, actress Vanessa Redgrave (right), gave most of her money away to radical political groups when she was a child.
Her father died of an Aids-related illness in 1991 and the actress had been involved with charity work for the disease since then.
She met her husband Liam Neeson when they co-starred in a Broadway production of Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie in 1993. At the time she was married to the actor Robert Fox.
Following her divorce, Richardson married Neeson in 1994. The couple have two teenage sons, Michael and Daniel.
Although she was best known for her stage work, Richardson had appeared in several movies, including romantic comedy Maid in Manhattan with Jennifer Lopez.
The star, who appeared with Sir Ian McKellen in 2005 psychodrama Asylum, won a Tony award for her Broadway role as Sally Bowles in Cabaret in 1998.
Richardson worked with Ethan Hawke and his then-wife Uma Thurman on the movie, Chelsea Walls. It was shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001.
Actor Ralph Fiennes starred alongside Richardson in the 2005 movie The White Countess. Her mother and aunt Lynn also appeared in the Shanghai-set period drama.
