Life and career cut short - Natasha Richardson

Natasha Richardson plays a once-elegant Russian in 1930s Shanghai who wins the heart of a blind man (Ralph Fiennes) in the 2005 drama "The White Countess."

The gifted actress died last night due to complications from a skiing accident. She was only a couple of months away from her 46th birthday.

Richardson had spent her life immersed in the acting world: She was the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and the late director Tony Richardson -- she made her film debut in her father's "The Charge of the Light Brigade" while still a pre-schooler -- and she had been married to Liam Neeson (whom she met when they co-starred in the Broadway revival of "Anna Christie") for the past 15 years.

Her movies include - "Patty Hearst" (1988), "The Handmaid's Tale" (1990), "The Comfort of Strangers" (1991, "Nell" (1994, Blow Dry" (2001) and "The White Countess" (2005)...

What a sad day for her family and Hollywood...
