Natasha Richardson: Her Life & Loves

With her tragic death, take a look back at the actress's world as a devoted wife, mother and activist

FAMILY FIRST

"I want my sons to be my priority," Richardson once said of Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12. The actress made sure she was never away from her boys for long, and alternated her schedule with Neeson's so that one parent was always home. "She was fierce as a mother and really took that role seriously," said director Scott Ellis, who had worked with Richardson and her own mother, Vanessa Redgrave, in a charity performance of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music in January.
