Look. The death of Natasha Richardson hit me harder than most celebrity deaths (because obviously the ‘98 Parent Trap had a major effect on my development), but I must say
Liam Neeson’s career took a pretty fascinating turn after it happened, and if one considers his persona’s major “character change” to have been a direct reaction to Richardson’s death…it’s almost sweet?
The man’s wife dies and he needs to continue acting to support himself and his children, so he only takes roles that allow him to be a bad ass who can literally overcome anything.
That’s awesome. That’s great. That’s coping.
