    Oh how terrible. I love her, she is a great actress like her mother and so beautiful. I hope she recovers. I do hope the brain injury isn't as bad as it sounds

    Wow that doesn't sound to good isn't she the grandaughter of Ralph Richardson?
    Hmm guess not always thought she was she's actually Michael Redgrave's grand daughter..

    Hey lets all go skiing in Canada and either die or get badly injured. Seriously though helmets should be required at all ski hills.

    Damn. Sad news on a day when I finally got some good. Been in love with her since I saw Dennis Quaid do so all over again in The Parent Trap remake.

    I had a couple of prayers answered today, so I will definitely be p(r)aying it forward. Here's to a complete and speedy recovery for Natasha!

    I love Natasha Richardson, such a wonderful actress. I actually saw her on Broadway in 'Cabaret' and she was astounding.
    I hope and pray she will pull through this.

    Love that movie too WD. This is why I don't ski. My hubby and kids are all expert skiers but I'm too much of a scaredy cat. So I never learned. I do worry about my family when they go skiing, even though I know they are all experts, accidents happen and it is scary.

    Her sons with Liam are just 12 and 13 years of age. If its a trumatic head injury I wonder if she ran into a tree or hit her head on a rock....ran into another skier?? I love skiing but it just takes a split second to have a bad accident. Here's hoping it is not a serious as it sounds.

    We're about due for another celeb death by skiing unfortunately. How long have Sonny Bono and that Kennedy been gone?

    I really hope she's alright. Those little boys are too young to lose their mother.
    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    I certainly hope she is OK as well.
    Liam Neeson always has that sad world weary look and cadance to his voice that several of us Irish can have.
    They seem like a very happy couple and their kids are cute. Her Mom Vanessa Redgrave was so beautiful in a wild sort of way when she was younger.
    I remember her Mom in Camelot.
    I must say as a southerner that I fail to see the attraction of paying good money to get cold and wet. Sking has never held any facination. I tried it a couple of times and it was not pleasant for me.
    The drinks in the lodge afterwards by the fire worked but freezing in the lift line and on the lift etc not so much!
    Well prayers for her and her family.
    Regards,
    Mary

    I am devistated. She is so lovely and she and Mr. Neeson are such a wonderful pair. I don't look for her to survive this and it is devistating. In my opinion "Nell" will be her best movie. Her family must be beside themselves to say the least.

    I just heard this while driving into work - sounds so bad.

    I've never skiied so I don't know much about it, but I would think if you were traveling at a high speed and hit a tree or some other object you could really fuck yourself up.

    I'm having a good thought for her...she's a talented woman and from everything I've read a nice gal to boot, a quality which seems rare among some celebrities.

    Just read this on Yahoo news. I don't have a good feeling about it, unfortunately. If she pulls through, she has a lot of rehab and recovery time to go through and probably won't be the same. There are miracles, of course, and the human body can come back from extraordinary trauma, but I just don't get a good feeling about this. I feel particularly bad for her sons. I'll pray for a good outcome, nevertheless.

    This sort of accident reminds me why I gave up downhill after my teens and took to Nordic skiing. You get the ski experience, but at a much safer speed, and you can enjoy the surroundings better! I'm naturally a chicken myself; never was a danger junkie!

    I never knew much about her, and can't say I've seen any of her movies; the only thing I know is she's married to Liam Neeson.

    I hope she recovers.

    Just read that she was on a green hill which is a beginners hill. She lost her footing and tumbled down the hill. She didn't hit a tree or anyone else. Liam is in Toronto filming a movie and rushed to be by his wife's side (the happened in Quebec).

    Wonder if her head hit a rock? Prayers for a full recovery.

    Prayers and good thoughts going out to Natasha and her whole family, especially the boys. I really hope she recovers, as she's one of my favorite actresses...

    I just read an update. Apparently she was getting a lesson and for some unknown reason she fell. No blood, no sign of impact. The Ski Patrol came to her aid and she was concious and making jokes. An hour later she started complaining of headaches and was taken to the hospital. She was totally concious when she arrived at the hospital. No mention of her state right now.

    On Yahoo they've downgraded the headline to "hospitalized" from "critical", and make it sound like she went to the hospital after not feeling well. Wonder where the truth lies?

    She May Not Be As Badly Hurt As We Thought...

    HL:Actress Natasha Richardson injured at Mont Tremblant; resort says it looked minor
    THE CANADIAN PRESS
    MONTREAL -- Actress Natasha Richardson was conscious and showed no signs of a serious head injury after she fell during a beginner ski lesson at Mont Tremblant, a spokeswoman for the popular Quebec resort said Tuesday.
    Lyne Lortie said the Tony-award-winning actress was in the middle of a private ski lesson on Monday when she suffered what appeared to be a relatively unspectacular fall at the resort north of Montreal.
    While Richardson seemed fine, the ski patrol wanted to take a closer look so she was taken to the bottom of the hill by sled, Lortie said.
    "She showed really no visible sign of injury and she was talking and showed absolutely no sign of confusion," she said.
    "It was right in the middle of the slope so she didn't hit anyone or a tree. It was a fall as anyone can do. It wasn't a violent fall at all."
    A family member confirmed Richardson had a skiing accident but the extent of her injuries was unclear.
    Earlier reports indicated she may have suffered a serious brain injury.
    But Lortie said Richardson insisted on returning to her room at Mont Tremblant's Hotel Quintessence and was accompanied by the instructor and ski patrol.
    They stayed with her for about an hour after which she began complaining of a headache and not feeling well.
    Lortie said they "immediately" called an ambulance and she was taken to the Centre Hospitalier Laurentian near Mont Tremblant before being transferred to Sacre-Coeur Hospital in Montreal.
    The accident happened around noon and it's not clear if Richardson was accompanied by anyone.
    Lortie said Richardson had not yet checked out of her hotel room as of noon Tuesday.
    Richardson is the daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave and the wife of actor Liam Neeson.

    Perez Hilton has on his site that she's passed away. Don't know how Perez knows before anyone else though.

    I just saw on CNN's Headline News that she is exactly as Duster and myself reported. She had an accident skiing, is in hospital recovering.
