Liam Neeson’s son Micheál has opened up about how he and his father dealt with the loss of Natasha Richardson.
Back in 2009, the actress sadly passed away at the age of 45, after she got into a tragic skiing accident in Canada.
Her 25-year-old son stars alongside his father in the comedy-drama Made in Italy, which will see them play a father and son who have lost their wife and mother – a loss they are too familiar with.
“It’s very easy to shy away from the grieving process,” Micheál shared with The Irish Mail on Sunday.
“It’s so painfully difficult to lose somebody close to you that sometimes the easiest thing to do is to shove it under the carpet – That’s what my dad did.”
On his own grief, the young actor admitted: “I’m still trying to figure it out myself.”
“The one useful thing I’ve learned is to keep the person in your mind and honour them in whatever way you can.”
Michéal admitted that he chose to follow in his parents footsteps and enter the world of acting because of his mother: “It’s the best way of keeping mom close to me.”
Liam Neeson previously revealed he still talks to his late wife every day, when he visits her grave in New York.
Speaking to the Inquirer.net, Liam confessed: “I speak to her every day at her grave, which is about a mile and half down the road.
“I go down there quite often, so I do speak to her as if she’s here. Not that she answers me.”
