If there is one thing we constantly validate, it is the fact that our Hollywood celebrities are not limited to what we see. Like you and I, they have personal lives and responsibilities. So it’s time to see what this star of the action is when he’s no longer on the screen. Let’s go see Liam Neeson’s wife and children.
Liam Neeson’s Wife
This is a real tragedy, since Liam Neeson’s wife, Natasha Richardson, has passed away since March 18, 2009. Their love story began when they played side by side in Anna Christie’s rebirth in 1993 in what was then the Criterion Center.
She had just finished her divorce with producer Robert Fox and he was still single in every sense of the word. According to the Daily News, the duo’s chemistry electrified the stage, thrilled critics and earned them Tony nominations. Shortly afterward, rumors began to spread that the two were together.
Richardson had this to say about it: “It was not an easy time when I met Liam, when I worked with him, what happened between us, and that being publicly informed when my marriage collapsed, was a bad time. What can I say? What can I say? “Obviously, I fell very much in love with him.
She was not discouraged either by the fact that Neeson was a renowned ladies’ man, I am happy that women fall in love with him because I know why. It was after the actor filmed Schindler’s List that he finally reconnected with Natasha and on the first Sunday in July 1994, they called guests to attend their wedding at their rural retreat in northern New York State.
Liam Neeson’s wife was not the only victim of fatal accidents during their marriage (although in her case the accident cost her her life) in 2000, Neeson hit a deer that jumped in his way while he was on his 1989 Harley-Davidson near their country home. Fortunately, he recovered from all these injuries, even in time to play in his 2001 film, Gangs of New York.
The couple had a wonderful and fulfilling life together and it was too short on March 18, 2009, when Natasha lost her life following an epidural hematoma after a skiing accident in Quebec, Canada. Neeson had to assume the heavy responsibility of “unplugging the plug”.
The couple had made a pact if one of us got into a vegetative state and disconnected it. She was in the presence of close friends and family when the act was finally carried out. It was a pretty tough route for Neeson after that, he fought against alcoholism, but he finally got away with it.
Last year, Taken’s star admitted that he was in a new relationship and that he was incredibly happy, but the identity of his new love has not yet been revealed. We wish him the best of luck.
Liam Neeson’s Sons
Liam and Natasha had two sons together, Michael and Daniel Neeson. Both were relatively young when their mother died, but old enough to feel the grief that followed. Michael was born on June 22, 1995 (21) and his brother Daniel was born one year later, on August 27, 1996 (20).
Daniel does his best to stay out of the limelight, but his older brother is slowly following in his parents’ footsteps. Michael even opened up to the media about the ordeal of grieving for his mother’s death. For a 13-year-old boy, it couldn’t have been easy.
He told the Sunday Times: “I went out, I partied a lot, I was looking for fulfillment. I wanted to be the man who was using drugs, everyone said, “This kid lost his mother, that’s where the problem comes from. And I said, “No, it’s not, I just like to party. But when I think about it, I realize it was a delayed reaction’.
It was in 2014 that he finally reached the point where he had to ask for help, so he enrolled in detox and it has been a little easier since then. Michael obviously wants to take over the family business, but his father, Liam, is not very enthusiastic, he said, “Please, can you just be a farmer or a bartender or something like that?
He may disapprove, but he obviously can’t stop it, because the two of them even played in an advertisement together, but he believes his mother would have been on board with his decision to pursue an acting career. Liam Neeson has no other children.
