Gemma Strong

Liam Neeson is a step closer to finding love again following the tragic death of his wife Natasha Richardson in 2009. The Taken actor revealed he is romantically involved with an "incredibly famous" woman during an interview with the Irish Independent this week.

The 63-year-old would not reveal the identity of the lady in question, but did hint at his Valentine's Day plans. "I'd embarrass her if I said her name, she's incredibly famous," Liam said. "I'll have to do my best for her. It's amazing how far a simple bunch of freshly picked flowers will go in a lady's life, I find."

Liam lost his wife of 14 years in March 2009 after a tragic skiing accident. The couple had two sons together, Michael, 20, and Daniel, 19. He told the publication he naturally still feels "grief" over Natasha’s passing. Describing her sudden death as "a touchy subject", Liam added: "Of course the grief is still there. You do your best.

"I had many little letters, beautiful little cards scrawled from people after her death. I still have them and they are very meaningful. It is really touching.

"In your soul you know that there are people out there caring for you. That means a hell of a lot to me."

The actor was previously in a two year relationship with British publicist Freya Johnston, but that came to an end in 2012. An insider told the Mail at the time: "He told her he wanted to spend more time in New York and that he really wants to make more time for his children.

"Freya wanted something more serious, but Liam feels it is too soon. His wife only died three years ago, he wants to take things slow."
