Joely Richardson: There'll never be a day I don't think of Natasha
Eight months after the death of her beloved sister, Joely Richardson has revealed how she threw herself into work to cope with the loss.
Miss Richardson, 44, spoke of the tragedy for the first time since Natasha died after a skiing accident, aged 45.
'We were such opposites, but completely enmeshed in each other,' she said.
Miss Richardson went back on set the day after her sister's funeral as she was in the middle of filming the BBC's new version of The Day of the Triffids. She then moved on to playing Catherine Parr in The Tudors.
She said: 'A strange autopilot kicks in; your psyche puts your work day into a different compartment from your private life. I'm not kidding – my first shot back on set was reacting to someone dying.'
