NATASHA Richardson, the actress wife of Liam Neeson, is in a Montreal hospital after a skiing accident in Canada, her family has told the BBC. There are no further details, but unconfirmed reports suggest the 45-year-old suffered serious head injuries at the resort of Mont Tremblant. Neeson is believed to have flown to her bedside from the set of his latest film, which is shooting in Toronto. They married in 1994 after appearing in the film Nell, and have two sons. A member of Richardson's family, who spoke to the BBC but has asked not to be named, said the whole family was "very distressed". Part of the Redgrave acting dynasty, Richardson is the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and director Tony Richardson, and the sister of Nip/Tuck star Joely Richardson. She has starred in a number of Hollywood films and acted opposite an 11-year-old Lindsay Lohan in 1998's The Parent Trap. But she is better known for her work on the stage, winning a Tony award in 1998 for her starring role in Sam Mendes' Broadway production of Cabaret. - BBC
