NEW YORK, N.Y. -- A colleague of Liam Neeson says the actor showed remarkable professionalism in returning to work so soon after the death of wife Natasha Richardson.
According to director Atom Egoyan, Neeson was “unspeakably generous” in returning to the Toronto set of the movie “Chloe” the week after Richardson’s death last month.
Neeson went back to Toronto for a couple of days’ work to complete his scenes for the thriller directed by Egoyan.
Neeson’s work on the film had been on hold after Richardson sustained a head injury in a fall March 16 during a skiing lesson in Quebec. Richardson died two days later.
