Something for Thursday

Natasha Richardson wasn't in Love Actually, but her husband, Liam Neeson, was, and in that film he played a role he can now sadly play in real life: a bereaved husband.

From Love Actually, here is the Glasgow Love Theme, by composer Craig Armstrong. You can ignore the slideshow of images from the film; I selected this clip because the sound is better than some others.

A fitting tribute. What a sad, mundane end for a lovely woman. It would've been different if she'd piled into a tree at 60 mph or something, but from what I hear, the accident was so... undramatic. My heart goes out to Liam Neeson and their children.

I'm glad, but not surprised, to see that you also remembered Liam Neeson's role in Love Actually. The look on his face, in the scene where he's standing at his wife's funeral, having just introduced the BCR song, has always broken my heart. And that flashed into my mind almost immediately when I heard the news.

My daughter and I had just watched The Parent Trap last Friday night, and I'd been thinking about how funny Natasha Richardson was, how everyone thought of her as this great actress, member of the dynasty, blah blah blah and maybe didn't realize her flair for comedy.

Such a shame all around. Thanks for posting this.

I thought the same thing. Life imitating art. So, so sad.

And this song is going to make me cry!
