When it came to the women, Liam Neeson had an air of magnetic allure about him. He went from being one of Hollywood’s most desirable bachelors to being a contented married man in the span of a few short years.
It all started when he developed a crush on his co-star Natasha Richardson, whom he referred to as a “very, very lovely” lady. From there, everything else followed.
On the other hand, his co-star Richardson was married to the producer Robert Fox at the time, so it did not seem like the perfect moment to begin a romantic relationship, but it did happen.
When the feelings started to rise, neither one of them did anything to stop it, but then, luck was on Neeson’s side when it seemed like Richardson’s marriage to Fox was on the verge of failing.
Despite the fact that Neeson has not yet reached the stage in his life where he is willing to reveal his love or plus one with the public, he is still an excellent family man who is committed to both his boys and his job.
Working together on stage helped the co-stars form a true friendship with one another, moreover, fans and film reviewers alike noticed their on-screen connection. Their performances garnered them nominations for Tony Awards as well.
During the course of his reminiscences on his time spent working with Richardson, the actor said, “I’d never experienced that type of an intense chemistry scenario with an actor or actress.”
The performer arrived at the conclusion after some deliberation that it was a pleasant experience to be safeguarded. Therefore, one year after performing together on stage, they decided to make their relationship permanent by vowing to be together until their demise.
They had always intended to have a family after their wedding, and only a few short months later, they became parents to their first child, Michael. The next year, they brought on board a new member by the name of Daniel.
The pair continued to be dedicated to one another and their marriage even after having parents as quickly as they could. They followed their vows and continued to be happy with their employment.
Richardson, whose mother was the British actress Vanessa Redgrave, managed to balance her acting career with becoming a mother. She had the same level of commitment to the marriage that her husband had, and she wanted the best for him just as much as he did for her.
During the time that they were together, the pair decided to make a contract in which they agreed that if any of them fell into a vegetative condition, the other spouse would turn off life support.
Neeson suffered the loss of the lady he believed would be at his side for the rest of his life in 2009, after they had been married for sixteen years.
The actor was filming in Toronto while his wife was in Quebec, so they were both unaware of the impending catastrophe until it was too late. Richardson and his wife had taken their oldest child, Michael, skiing for their holiday.
She was unfortunate in that as she was skiing down a slope designed for beginners, she fell and injured her head, which was not covered by a helmet.
In spite of the fact that he was upset over the tragedy, he obeyed her words and, even now, many years later, he is still content with the fact that his wife is contributing to a good cause; Neeson donated her organs. He remarked that
“She’s not there. However, she has given three of her organs, which means that she is now responsible for maintaining the lives of three other people. Yeah. Her vital organs, including her heart, kidneys, and liver.”
The loss of Richardson was a life-changing setback. The actor reported feeling unsteady. He was unable to come to grips with her absence, and for the first few years, he held out hope that she would one day stroll into the home and make the familiar rattling noise with the keys as she had done in the past.
Neeson threw himself into his profession because he never wanted to give the impression of being fragile, unhappy, or melancholy.
Neeson’s family and friends have been hoping and praying that he may find happiness again soon following the passing of his wife.
The stunning revelation that the actor had rekindled his love affair with a lady he had met two years ago while shooting in Melbourne was made public not too long ago.
Neeson confessed that he was already engaged, despite the fact that he refused to reveal the woman’s name.
It is not the first time that the actor has said something that has caused fans to go crazy with excitement.
In 2016, he claimed to have been in a relationship with a famous lady, but he did not disclose the name of his supposed partner. After some time had passed, a representative clarified that it had all been a prank.
