Liam John Neeson is an actor with undeniable charisma, impressive talent, versatility and quiet forcefulness. This eminent Irish born actor began performing at Dublin's famed Abbey Theatre where, he was discovered by director John Boorman, who cast him as Sir Gawain in the movie ‘Excalibur’. Following his part in that action fantasy, he did supporting roles in many films. He got his first starring role in ‘Darkman’ which was a relative disappointment. His work in the Broadway revival of Anna Christie impressed Steven Spielberg so much that he cast him as Oskar Schindler in his landmark Holocaust drama, ‘Schindler's List’. Neeson received Oscar and British Academy Award nominations for his performance. More high-profile work followed as he went on to star in such films as, ‘Rob Roy’, and ‘Michael Collins’. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace which starred him as a Jedi master, earned negative reviews, but made box office millions. The film’s success gave lot of media attention and visibility to Neeson. He entered the new millennium with a variety of projects such as, ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘Love Actually’, ‘Kinsey’, ‘Kingdom of Heaven’, ‘Batman Begins’, ‘Taken’ and ‘The Grey’. He continues to be busy and has many offers in his hands.
