Liam’s Turn: Neeson Keeps Vigil for Wife Natasha Richardson

By: Celebuzz / March 18, 2009

It seems life has come full circle for actor Liam Neeson, who now sits at his wife Natasha Richardson’s bedside in a New York City hospital.

The actress and mother suffered a head injury on Monday that has left the star brain dead. This wouldn’t be the first major accident for the family.

In 2000, the Taken star suffered a near-fatal motorcycle accident that shattered his pelvis.

“It was a terrible time,” Richardson said of the accident, which saw her nursing Neeson back to health.

The actor struck a deer while riding near one of the couple’s homes in upstate New York. He was discovered by a passing motorist, lying on the side of the road.

“You have one life to live and you have to look after yourself,” Neeson said in 2004 to People magazine.

Richardson’s mother Vanessa Redgrave arrived to New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital last night to join Neeson. After two Canadian hospitals and an American transfer, Neeson and Redgrave are now said to be contemplating removing Natasha from life support.
