The 25-year-old actor, whose parents are the late actress and Liam Neeson, recalled losing his mom when he was only 13-years-old.
Natasha died in 2009 from blunt force trauma following a skiing accident. She was only 45-years-old.
It was so sudden,” Micheál shared with U.K’s The Times. “When it’s unexpected and it’s just a complete freak accident, it really sort of messes with your mind, whether you believe in fate or not. It can send you for a bit of a head spin, and so you just latch on to the tiny little memories, whether it’s her laugh or her energy in the room or her cooking.”
Micheál also said that he keeps his mom’s memory alive by watching some of her old movies.
“I do have her films to go back and watch her in, which I’m incredibly grateful for,” Micheál said.
In a previous interview with People, Micheál said that his favorite movie of Natasha‘s is The Parent Trap “because I just see her so much as that person.”
“I’m so lucky too, because she’s passed away, I can still watch her and see how she worked and also it’s a great thing to have,” he continued. “And I do [watch her movies], but there’s still a lot there I need to watch.”
Micheál recently teamed up with Liam for the movie Made in Italy, which you can watch on Hulu now.
In a recent interview, Liam shared his thoughts on Micheál deciding to take Natasha‘s last name “Richardson” as his own.
