Grieving Liam Neeson goes back to work

Grieving actor Liam Neeson has returned to shoot the final scenes of his forthcoming movie "Chloe" after he was forced to abandon filming to be at the side of his dying wife Natasha Richardson during her final hours.

The Irish star quit the production of "Chloe" in Toronto on March 16 after learning Richardson was hospitalized in Montreal after a fall during a skiing lesson. He then flew his seriously ill partner to New York, where he was joined by family members and close friends at the Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. Richardson passed away two days later.

Producers rescheduled shooting to accommodate Neeson, allowing him time to comfort his sons, Michael, 13, and Daniel, 12. Neeson threw himself back into filming, but was lost in mourning when the cameras were turned off, according to New York gossip column PageSix.

Neeson's sister-in-law Joely Richardson also returned to work on TV movie "The Day of the Triffids." However, bereaved Vanessa Redgrave, mother of Natasha and Joely Richardson, has delayed a charity performance in New York from April to October following her daughter's death.
