LONDON (Reuters) - Actress Natasha Richardson, the wife of actor Liam Neeson, has been critically injured in a skiing accident in Canada, relatives told media Tuesday.

The Evening Standard newspaper said Richardson, 45, had suffered a "traumatic head injury" at the ski resort of Mont Tremblant, about 75 miles from Montreal.

Corin Redgrave, Richardson's uncle, told the newspaper: "I have heard this morning from a family representative about Natasha's accident and am very saddened."

The BBC said a member of Richardson family, who asked not to be named, said the whole family was "very distressed."

Richardson, the daughter of actress Vanessa Redgrave, won a Tony award in 1998 for her performance in the musical "Cabaret."

Richardson's husband Neeson, who was filming in Toronto, has flown to Montreal where his wife is in hospital, reports said.

"We do not have any details at this time but we do hope for the best," the Standard quoted a spokesman for the film as saying.
