Actress Joely Richardson recently opened up about coping with the loss of her sister, Natasha Richardson. In an interview with Tatler magazine, she talked about when she had to go back to work right after the funeral.
She said: ‘A strange autopilot kicks in; your psyche puts your work day into a different compartment from your private life. I’m not kidding – my first shot back on set was reacting to someone dying.’
She plans to move back to New York with her daughter Daisy for two months to be closer to Natasha’s sons, Michael, 14, and Daniel, 13.
She added: ‘I hadn’t lived a day in my life without her. You worry about your children and your elders, but I never imagined such a thing as this. Tash was a given to me.’
I can’t imagine the grief she must feel after Natasha’s sudden death. At least her boys will have their aunt nearby soon.
