Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Richardson has established herself as one of the finest actresses of her generation. The talent is all hers, but bloodlines must count for something: her parents are Vanessa Redgrave and the late Tony Richardson. Described by a "New York Times" writer as having "a profile of exquisite purity and a seductively husky voice that caresses you with metal filings and honey," Richardson studied at England's Central School of Speech and Drama and made her first big splash on stage as Nina in "The Seagull," first oppo site Samantha Eggar and then her mother. Her film debut as Mary Shelley in Ken Russell's bizarre Gothic (1986) was singled out as one of the film's few redeeming features. She followed with A Month in the Country (1987), then starred in the title role of Paul Schrader's dour Patty Hearst (1988), giving a powerful performance despite limp writing. Richardson won applause for two more odd projects: the adaptation of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (1990) and Schrader's bizarre The Comfort of Strangers (1991); her first comedy, The Favor, The Watch, and the Very Big Fish (also 1991) was seen by few. Since then, she earned a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in "Anna Christie," a role she also played to acclaim in London. It remains for filmmakers to find roles worthy of her considerable talent. She's appeared in several TV movies, including Heading Home (1990), and in 1994 costarred in Widows' Peak She is married to actor Liam Neeson, with whom she starred in Nell (1994).
