In Memoriam: Natasha Richardson
The great Natasha Richardson has died from her injuries in a skiing accident. She was only 45 years old. I remember first noticing her in The Handmaid's Tale, then she went on to portray Patty Hearst, which is still one of my favorite movies. She was breathtaking as Catherine in the BBC remake of Tennessee William's Suddenly Last Summer and I loved her in The White Countess. On stage, she starred as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire and won a Tony Award for playing Sally Bowles in the revival of Cabaret. She had recently performed with her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, in A Little Night Music and they were planning to do the show again for a longer run. She will be missed.
