The beautiful and talented actress Natasha Richardson died last night, 18 March 2009, aged just 45 years old.  Natasha had sustained a serious head injury following a seemingly innocuous skiing accident on Monday.

I have been a fan of Natasha's for as long as I can remember but my favourite role of hers was as Offred in the 1990 adaptation of Margaret Atwood's Handmaid's Tale.

There are countless articles circulating at the moment detailing Natasha's wonderful contributions to both stage and screen; talking about her famous family and the loved ones she left behind.  I'm not going to go into details right now as I am just too sad and all too painfully aware of just how fragile our human bodies are.



  1. This is so tragic and sad, and a reminder that we have to make every day count.


  2. Too true Mike. But your blog is all about that, isn't it? We have to appreciate every single day!

  3. I was/ am very saddened about this. It's a pity that it was overshadowed by the death of Goody, which I honestly didn't give two hoots about.

  4. @ tenderhooligan: I know! And Natasha was a much better English success story!!

  5. Dear God yes! There is a poster on another site I post on who talks about Goody all the time (and talks about her illiterately also) and I just can't stop laughing at it!
