Swayze Remembers Co-Star Richardson

Mar 24, 2009 | 5:17am EDT

Patrick Swayze has paid tribute to his former co-star Natasha Richardson -- insisting "the world will be a different place" without the actress.

The actor -- who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year -- worked with the tragic star on 2002's Waking Up in Reno.

And Swayze has been left devastated by the loss of Richardson -- who died on Wednesday after a fall while skiing on the slopes of Mont Tremblant in Montreal.

He says, "It is such a great loss to this community to lose an actress and person such as Natasha. Gifts like her don't come along very often. It's a rare thing in this industry to have someone with so much talent, beauty, and dedication and yet is imbued with such humility.

"I know for me and many other people, the world will be a different place without her. My heart goes out to Liam and his two boys, but I'm sure that Natasha's light is shining down on them."
