NEW YORK - Liam Neeson Looked Distraught but Grateful for the Outpouring of Symp


Byline: Associated PRess

NEW YORK Liam Neeson looked distraught but grateful for the outpouring of sympathy as he greeted grieving family members and friends who attended a private viewing for wife Natasha Richardson on Friday.

Neeson was the last to leave the viewing at the Upper East Sides American Irish Historical Society, where he was joined by the couples sons, Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12 as well as Richardsons mother, Vanessa Redgrave, and sister, Joely Richardson.

An array of famous friends came to express their sadness about the familys sudden loss.

Actor Jonathan Cake said: "I had dinner with her Saturday night. ... She left to ski the next day."

Theaters in Londons West End dimmed their lights Friday to mark Richardsons death, just as Broadway theaters did Thursday.

In a tribute to the stage and screen actress, the lights were lowered before the curtains went up on evening performances.

Theatergoer Andrew Nicol of London thought it was fitting. "We must not forget she was a fantastic actress in her own right, but also she was from the Redgrave family, who have given so much to the U.K. in terms of acting," he said.
