Joely Richardson, sister of the recently deceased Natasha Richardson, has returned to work after the sudden death of her older sister.

Natasha, 47, died from a head injury incurred during a skiiing accident on March 16.

Joely, 44, her Oscar-winning mother Vanessa Redgrave, and Natasha’s husband Liam Neeson and their sons were all forced to bid goodbye to the Tony award-winning actress during services held in upstate New York last week.

People reports that Richardson has returned to work filming her role in The Day of the Triffids, a mini-series adaption of the classic sci-fi novel, with Dougray Scott in London.

She was given a special leave from the set when the news of Natasha’s accident was given to her.

Richardson’s mother Vanessa also has a role in the production, but filmed it before her daughter’s sudden death.

Joely also has a role in FX’s series Nip/Tuck, in which she plays Julia MacNamara.
