Tributes continue to pour in from the Hollywood, Broadway and West End elite for deceased actress Natasha Richardson, after her tragic death yesterday from a brain injury following a ski-ing accident. Here's what just a few celebrities have to say about The Parent Trap star:
Jane Fonda: "It is hard to imagine what it must be like for her family. My heart is heavy."
Blythe Danner: "I can't talk as I start crying. I'm heart broken. I don't think I can handle it."
Lindsay Lohan: "My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss."
Michael Winner: "It's a terrible, terrible thing. She was a wonderful actress. Whenever you met her, it was like a joy. It's a twinkle and a sparkle that has left the world."
Michael Parkinson: "My thoughts are with Liam, it's a terrible, awful tragedy. It's very sad."
Martha Stewart: "Her family must be devastated. My sincerest condolences to all."
Mia Farrow: "Natasha is irreplaceable."

An autopsy (post-mortem) has begun, the results of which will be public today. RIP Natasha.

UPDATE: Broadway is going to dim its lights for one minute at 8pm New York time (midnight in London) in tribute to Natasha. "The Broadway community is shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic loss," said Charlotte St Martin, director of the Broadway League.
