Natasha Richardson was born in London, England and cradle raised by two amazing artists. Her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, is an award-winning actress and pioneering feminist while her father, Tony Richardson, was a prominent stage and film director. Natasha’s talent and ability to capture the hearts of her audience were discovered at a young age. At age 11, she made her stage debut at London’s West End in the revival of “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”. Her first appearance on the silver screen came three years later, in the film adaptation of the musical, “The Charge of the Light Brigade”.
Natasha went on to have a successful career that spanned four decades and included appearances in some of the most iconic films of the time including “Nell”, “The Parent Trap”, and “The Handmaid’s Tale”. She won a Tony Award for her role in “Cabaret” and a BAFTA for her performance in the television family film, “Fatherland”.
Natasha’s career was both an embodiment and result of her Taurus traits. Her father’s talent, coupled with her mother’s passion for the arts, gave Natasha the foundations for the strength, stubbornness, and a determined vision. Her work requires Taurus’ s stubbornness and diligent application of the craft. Her success in theater and film came from her ability to stay true to her vision and to be steadfast in the pursuit of her goals. Her Taurus traits of self-control and focus meant that, when the stars were aligned in her favor, Natasha’s career became an embodiment of the positive traits of the Taurus.
Despite her success, Natasha’s life wasn’t without struggles. She battled a heroin addiction early in life, and in 2009 she passed away at age 45 due to a brain injury. But she was remembered fondly and her legacy lives on. Her artistic vision, courage in the face of adversity, and steadfastness to her goals are a testament to the strength of character associated with the Taurus sign.
