Liam Neeson opened up about his grief on losing his wife, Natasha Richardson, in a skiing accident for the first time. He said he dealt with his grief by running away to work.
Natasha Richardson died due to brain injury suffered in a skiing accident in Quebec. She was airlifted to a New York hospital where she died on March 18, 2009. Liam Neeson in an interview to Esquire said that the loss hits him right in the middle of doing something ordinary. “But that's the weird thing about grief. You can't prepare for it. You think you're gonna cry and get it over with. You make those plans, but they never work.
He talked about how he reached the hospital and did not know how to get in past security. Thankfully, a nurse recognized him and she directed him. “So I get there, just in time. And all these young doctors, who look all of eighteen years of age, they tell me the worst.
He reported back to the sets of Chloe, the film he was working on then, right after the funeral. And it seems he has continued his filming spree right on; his recent movie list includes Taken, The A Team, and his upcoming film, Battleship.
In another interview to People he said that he has two barrels full of condolence messages and letters from well wishers that he has not been able to open till date. He said that he has his two boys and he is happy to spend time with them. 'My kids are good. And as long as they're good, I'm good. It's as simple as that. I have an extraordinary family on both my side and my wife's side,' he added.
