Actress suffered head injury while skiing in QuebecActress Natasha Richardson was seriously injured Monday in a skiing accident, according to reports.
The 45-year-old star of "Evening" and "The Handmaid's Tale" was skiing at the Mont Tremblant resort in Quebec when she had the accident and suffered a head injury, the AP says.

TMZ.com reports that Richardson, who is married to actor Liam Neeson, didn't initally realize the seriousness of her injury. She was on beginner slope when she fell, but when two ski patrollers came to her rescue, she felt fine enough to smile and make jokes.
An hour later, however, she started to feel unwell and complained of a headache. She was conscious when she left the resort for the hospital.
