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

GOLDEN MOMENT

In 1998, Richardson scored a Tony Award for best actress in a musical for her portrayal of brassy English singer Sally Bowles in Broadway's Cabaret. On her big night, she told PEOPLE: "I'm excited, I'm nervous, and I'm glad to be here." And in a tribute to her work on the Great White Way, Broadway prepared to dim the lights in her honor the day after her death.
