Thursday, January 21, 1993

Natasha Richardson, the daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave and director Tony Richardson, may have been born into one of acting’s great families, but she quickly made a name for herself on both stage and screen. Critics praised her performances in a wide range of her roles and she won the Tony Award in 1998 for her performance as Sally Bowles in "Cabaret." She died from a head injury after a skiing accident at the age of 45. You can listen to Leonard Lopate’s interview with Natasha Richardson from January 21, 1993, when she was starring in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s play "Anna Christie."
