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


"She regarded her mother as theater royalty, but not herself that way," said director Scott Ellis of Richardson (in 2000 with mom Redgrave and sister Joely). At 23, the actress won the London Drama Critics' Circle award as most promising newcomer when she appeared opposite her mother in Chekov's The Seagull. The two worked together most recently in the 2007 film Evening and onstage in January in A Little Night Music. "Having the chance to work with your mother, who is an extraordinary actress, is a dream come true," Richardson said.
