A spokeswoman for the ski resort, a favourite with stars and wealthy Americans, said: 'Ms Richardson fell during a ski lesson but she didn't show any signs of injury.

'The ski patrol looked at her and reported that she was laughing and joking. They told her to see someone but she insisted that she was fine and just wanted to go back to her room.

'The instructor and two members of the patrol accompanied her to her hotel room. She refused to see anyone and signed a paper saying she didn't want to see a doctor.

'After an hour or so she said she had a headache, then they called 911. We have the signed form in which she declined medical attention.

'She was not wearing a helmet. The law in Quebec does not require it but we always suggest it but cannot impose it.'

The resort spokesman added: 'There were no signs of impact and no blood, nothing.'

A member of one of Britain's most famous acting dynasties, Richardson was on holiday before co-starring with her mother in a Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music. Her sister is the actress Joely Richardson.
