Natasha Richardson has passed away at the age of 45, after her family made the decision to take her off life support. She suffered brain injuries after a fall while skiing in Canada, but it wasn't apparent for hours. She leaves behind her husband Liam Neeson, their two boys, and other members of an acting royalty family - her mother Vanessa Redgrave, sister Joely, their brother Carlo, her aunt Lynn and her uncle Corin.

She also left behind a body of work in theatre and movies that have been mentioned extensively since the news about her condition first surfaced. But as always, I'd like to point out the contributions she made to Toobworld over the years:

The Mastersons of Manhattan (2007) .... Victoria Masterson

Haven (2001) .... Ruth Gruber

The Man Who Came to Dinner (2000) .... Host

Zelda (1993) .... Zelda Fitzgerald

Hostages (1993) .... Jill Morrell

Suddenly, Last Summer (1993) .... Catharine Holly

Ghosts (1987) .... Regina

In the Secret State (1985) .... Jilly

"Tales from the Crypt" .... Fiona Havisham

"The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" .... Violet Hunter
- The Copper Beeches (1985)

Good night, and may God bless....
