Liam Neeson Reacts to Son Micheál Taking His Late Mom Natasha Richardson's Last Name

In 2018, Liam Neeson‘s son Micheál Richardson decided to change his last name to his late mom’s last name.

Micheál, now 25, was only 13 years old when Natasha Richardson tragically died after a ski accident at the age of 45.

“I think he did the right thing. I think it was a lovely homage, a nice gesture and he’s, you know, he’s not saddled with my last name which, I have a certain celebrity status I guess,” Liam explained on Andy Cohen‘s SiriusXM show. “I’d hate for him to be constantly asked, ‘Oh are you Liam Neeson‘s son.’ So, it was a lovely gesture. Natasha’s family, mother and sisters were very touched by it, as indeed I was too.”

The pair star in the film Made in Italy together.
