Liam Neeson still hasn’t come to terms with Natasha Richardson’s death

liam-neeson-natasha-richardson It’s been five years since his wife Natasha Richardson died and Liam Neeson still hasn’t come to accept that she is gone.

Speaking to Loaded magazine, the actor has admitted he still expects to ”hear her” walk through the door.

”Her death was never real,” he says. ”It still kind of isn’t. There’s periods now when I hear the door opening, especially the first couple of years … anytime I hear that door opening, I still think I’m going to hear her.”

In 2009, Natasha had a ski accident that put her in a coma and when doctors told Liam his wife was brain dead he had to make the toughest decision and switch her off life support.

”So when I saw her and saw all these tubes and stuff that was my immediate thought, ‘OK, these tubes have to go. She’s gone’.”

Describing his feelings, Neeson said:  ”It hits you. It’s like a wave. You just get this profound feeling of instability. The earth isn’t stable anymore and then it passes and it becomes more infrequent, but I still get it sometimes.”
