Posted on

Actress Natasha Richardson, best known for roles in The Parent Trap (1998), Nell (1994), and Maid in Manhattan (2002), was admitted to a Montreal hospital Monday following a skiing accident. People.com confirms that the actress, wife of actor Liam Neeson and daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave, was first admitted to the Centre Hospitalier Laurentienfollowing a skiing accident in the Mont Tremblant resort area. At 5 p.m. she was transferred to Hôpitaldu Sacré-Coeur de Montréal, reportedly having suffered a traumatic brain injury. The accident was first reported by IrishCentral.com, which claimed that their source was an insider at a Montreal hospital.

Neeson’s spokesperson, Alan Nierob, said he had not been able to reach the actor and could not confirm the reports. Calls and e-mails to Richardson’s talent agency, CAA, were not returned, presumably due to the late hour. The 45-year-old mother of two, who won a Tony Award in 1999 for her performance as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, was said to be in talks to costar with her acting legend mother in a revival of the Stephen Sondheim musical A Little Night Music on Broadway.
