Neeson Sees Broadway Tribute To Richardson

Devastated LIAM NEESON was supported by his actor pals as he attended a moving tribute to tragic wife NATASHA RICHARDSON in New York on Thursday (19Mar09) night.
Theatres on Broadway dimmed their lights for a minute in honour of the Maid in Manhattan star, who died on Wednesday (18Mar09) from head injuries after a skiing accident.
Neeson emerged from his New York home to witness the tribute - and was comforted by his close friends Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick.
The Sex and the City star was among the crowds lining Broadway to pay their respects to Richardson, and was seen hugging Neeson as he attended the event with his wife's mother Vanessa Redgrave and other family members.
Meanwhile, fellow British actor Jeremy Irons struggled to contain his emotions as he spoke about Richardson during a television interview.
Asked for his thoughts on the tragedy on U.S. TV's The Today Show, Irons said: "It's... it's... absolutely terrible. It just reminds us how fragile life is. As a father and as a husband I feel for him - for the family - so, so much.
"I suppose what I have to remember is that could happen to any of us at any time - so make the most of it."
Staff at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, where Richardson studied her craft, are to launch a scholarship fund in her memory.

I met Liam and Natasha a while back at a Film Tribute at Lincoln Center. They seemed like such a wonderful couple. Natasha was so nice and was absolutely gorgeous. I think she was the best Sally Bowles ever!! This is such a terrible tragedy. My heart goes out to Liam and the rest of her family. They say God takes the good ones and she was one of the best!
