A family member is confirming that British-born actress Natasha Richardson has been in a skiing accident.
People.com and IrishCentral.com are reporting that the Tony award-winning actress is in critical condition in a Montreal hospital after suffering a head injury.
Kika Markham is married to Richardson's uncle. She says the family knows Richardson had an accident, but doesn't have any more details. She says they "are very concerned."
Richardson is the elder daughter of Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and the late director Tony Richardson. She's married to actor Liam Neeson. The couple has two sons.
Her films include "Gothic," "A Month in the Country," and "Nell" -- in which she appeared with her future husband. She's also appeared in the "The Parent Trap," "Maid in Manhattan" and "The Handmaid's Tale."
She won her Tony in 1998 for playing Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."
