After a skiing accident in Montreal in 2009, Liam Neeson's wife Natasha Richardson lost her life. In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Neeson admitted that the absence of his wife is a daily struggle. After she was declared brain dead, he kept his wife on life support so the family could say goodbye. In hopes of helping others, Neeson donated three of Richardson's organs - her heart, kidneys and liver.
Neeson has went on to star in several major motion films and continued to challenge himself with staring in different roles.
