Natasha Richardson


Sadly, Ms. Richardson has succumbed to her injuries.  By all accounts a warm and wonderful person, at least we have her performances to remember her by.  "A Handmaids Tale", "Parent Trap" or "Patty Hearst" would be excellent ones to remind yourself of how talented this lady was.  One of my favorites is the 1993 version of "Suddenly, Last Summer".  Her portrayal of Catharine Holly is suffused with a delicate sensuality that's mesmerizing, and as sublimely Southern-Gothic orchidaceous as Sebastian Venables garden.

While the loss to the world of the Theater is great, I'm sure that our thoughts are with her family and most especially her children at this time.

I really liked her, and her death was so shocking. She had such a happy family life too, this was a terrible tragedy.
