Liam Neeson seduced women. He went from Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor to happily wedded in a flash.
He fell in love with his “very, very attractive” co-star Natasha Richardson. 1993’s Broadway play “Anna Christie” featured the pair.
At 40, Neeson was a Hollywood bad guy. He dated celebrities.
His co-star, Richardson, was married to producer Robert Fox, making it a bad time to start a relationship. It occurred.
Liam was lucky when Natasha’s marriage to Fox collapsed. Actress:
“Working with him, what transpired between us, and that it became public along with my marriage going apart was a little uncomfortable.
What else? Clearly, I loved him.”
Onstage, the actors bonded. Film critics and fans noticed their synergy. Tony nominations followed their performances.
“I’ve never had such tremendous connection with an actress. That great free dance class was on stage every night. We were Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.”
Liam was cautious until Richardson questioned about their relationship. When she turned 30, he wrote an unromantic letter.
The “Schindler’s List” actor wrote a few words as Oskar. She defined the relationship after Richardson didn’t laugh.
The performer instinctively protected the feeling. A year after performing together, they committed to lifelong love. Upstate New York’s property hosted their wedding (USA).
They wanted children after their marriage. Later, Michael was born. Next year, Daniel was born.
The couple stayed married, fulfilled their vows, and enjoyed their occupations despite becoming parents quickly. Vanessa Redgrave, Richardson’s mother, was an actress and mother.
She wanted the best for her husband and herself. The pair agreed that the well spouse would end their lives if one of them became vegetative.
Neeson’s life-altering accident
Liam lost his wife of sixteen years in 2009. While the actor was filming in Toronto, his wife was in Quebec.
Michael and Richardson went skiing. She fell and struck her uncovered head while sliding down a novice hill.
After refusing an ambulance, the instructor and another ski patrol officer took Natasha to her hotel. She informed her husband later.
Neeson said his wife said:
Honey, I fell in the snow.
The actress seemed well, refusing to see a doctor.
However, a big brain vessel burst and started bleeding after the accident.
The actress was hospitalized and tested. After seeing the test results, Neeson discovered the accident had killed her. Doctors told him his wife was brain dead. Richardson was briefly on life support.
The “Taken” actor said he accepted the loss earlier and whispered his dying words. Recalled:
“I said I loved her. Honey, you won’t survive this. Hit your head. It’s… This happened, if you can hear me. We’ll return you to NYC. Everyone will come.
Liam gave organs. said:
“She’s gone. He gave three of her organs, saving three lives. Her heart, kidneys, and liver.”
Losing Natasha was awful. Actor felt unstable. For years, he waited for her to come home and rattle the keys.
He stayed strong for his teenagers. Luckily, a friend told Michael his tale was similar (losing his mother at a young age).
This helped the boys but not their father. Neeson worked hard to avoid appearing weak or dejected. Verified:
I’m bad without a job. I don’t. I overcomplicate. Know? I didn’t want to appear depressed, especially for my kids.”
He appeared in over twenty films after losing his wife.
Liam joked about his relationship.
After Natasha’s death, the celebrity’s family and friends wanted him to be happy again. The actor revealed that he had fallen in love with a woman he met two years earlier in Melbourne.
Neeson confirmed their relationship but refused to reveal her identify. The musician has shocked admirers before.
In 2016, he claimed to be dating a famous woman but refused to reveal her identity. Later, a spokeswoman said it was a prank.
Neeson is a wonderful father and career man who hasn’t revealed his new romance.
