“She and I had made a pact. If any of us got into a vegetative state we’d pull the plug. So when I saw her and saw all these tubes and stuff that was my immediate thought, ‘Ok, these tubes have to go. She’s gone.'”

The Taken star also admitted that Natasha’s death still doesn’t feel real to him, and he sometimes expects her to walk through the door.

“Her death was never real. It still kind of isn’t. There’s periods now when I hear the door opening, especially the first couple of years… anytime I hear that door opening, I still think I’m going to hear her,” he said.
