Natasha Richardson remembers close friends and family in her will
Beloved British actress Natasha Richardson, who tragically died in a skiing accident in Canada in March, has left the bulk of her estate to her actor husband Liam Neeson.
However, in her last will and testament she also remembered several close friends, setting aside chunks of cash for each, it has been reported.
The 45-year-old put aside almost $300,000 to help friends and her sister through any tough times.
Richardson left $200,000 for her designer half-sister Katharine Grimond Hess, $50,000 to favoured employee Josephine Burke, and $10,000 to little-known Queens based costume designer, Kevin Mark Harris, who has worked on Sex and the City.
The London-born actress also bequeathed $20,000 of her fortune to her Aunt Lynn Redgrave.
Natasha, who is the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson, wrote her last will and testament in 2005. The executors of the estate were listed as husband Neeson and close actor friend Aidan Quinn.
Natasha and Liam, who shared homes on the Upper West Side and in the Hudson Valley, where the actress was buried, wed in 1994. They met while appearing in the film Nell.
The couple had two sons together, Michael, 12, and Daniel, 12.
