An accomplished stage and screen actress, she will be sorely missed.

Natasha Richardson was an extremely talented actress, and our sympathies are with her family and friends.

Actress Natasha Richardson



There's Patty Hearst and The Handmaid's Tale to remember too, both great roles that she performed wonderfully.

I'm sure it's been a terrible few days for the family, made worse by some terrible and quite frankly embarrassing press stories where clamoring for a breaking story was more important than the privacy of a family, some of whom were probably finding out through "making a buck" sources.

Give them the space of privacy, that thing that the people behind the stories take for granted.

I can't imagine how it would have felt to have had stories of my mother's death across the "media" before my extended family even knew.

My thoughts are with her family and friends.

My thought are also with her family and friends.

I was hoping she would pull through. It is a sad day indeed.

I share everyone's sentiments.
