Natasha Richardson is in critical condition at a Montreal hospital after being injured in a skiing accident.

The British actress, a member of the Redgrave acting dynasty and the wife of Liam Neeson, reportedly suffered head trauma, although the extent of the damage is unknown.

Calls to Richardson's agent were referred to Neeson's publicist, who said he didn't have any information because he has been unable to get in touch with his client.

Initial reports said Richardson suffered severe head trauma in the mishap. Later, it was learned Richardson walked away from her fall on the beginner's slope and fell ill with a headache about an hour later. She reportedly was conscious upon leaving for the hospital.

Richardson, 45, was transferred to Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal at about 5 p.m. after initially being taken to Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, which is close to the tony Mont Tremblant ski resort in Quebec, per People. The accident was first reported by the news site

Neeson and Richardson, who have been married since 1994, have two sons, Micheal Richard Antonio, 13, and Daniel Jack, 12.
