I know I promised no sad things on this blog, but I felt this had to be mentioned.
Natasha Richardson, beautiful and brilliant actress of stage and screen, died at only 45. My thoughts (and I hope all of yours as well) go out to her family and friends.
I never met Natasha (though I really wanted to), but she was one of my absolute favourite actresses. I'm currently listening to the Cabaret revival in which she portrayed Sally Bowles (wonderfully) and later, I think I'll watch Blow Dry.
So instead of making this forbiddingly sad, join me in celebrating such a phenomenal actress who will be truly missed by all who knew her and knew her work.
