Actress Natasha Richardson has died, her husband Liam Neeson's publicist said.

The 45-year-old star died at a hospital in New York after suffering a serious head injury in a fall at a Canadian ski resort.

Alan Nierob, Neeson's publicist, said: "Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha."

He continued: "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

Richardson's husband, Irish actor Neeson, 56, mother, Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave, 72, and two sons, Michael, 13, and Daniel, 12, visited her after she was flown from Canada to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York on Tuesday.

The accident happened while the actress was taking a supervised skiing lesson on a beginners run at the luxury Mont Tremblant resort in Quebec on Monday.

She showed no visible sign of injury after the fall but was brought to the bottom of the slope by a ski patrol and told she should see a doctor.

About an hour later she started feeling unwell and was taken to hospital.

Neeson flew from the set of his new film in Toronto to be with his wife as soon as he heard news of the accident.

Richardson was flown from Canada to New York, where she and her family live, for further treatment, but her death was announced shortly before midnight GMT on Wednesday.

That is horrible.
Kind of ironic that she sustained injuries on the beginners' slope though...

She's Vanessa Redgrave's daughter, who was a revered stage actress.

It's sad to hear how the circumstances occurred.

Because there are so many ski-n00bs, and even if they're supervised, nobody can stop them from falling ¬.¬

That's why I don't go snowboarding when the pistes are too frequented. This is actually one of the MAIN reasons why I go snowboard on the officially not opened tracks. ;/
