Ever since I saw Schindler’s List, I just fell in love with Liam Neeson. He is one of my favourite Hollywood actors, who definitely knows how to portray a wide range of characters. Although nowadays Liam Neeson is one of the most respected and well known actors in Hollywood, he actually wanted to be a teacher. Liam Neeson was born in Northern Ireland and worked as a forklift operator for Guinness, truck driver, assistant architect and amateur boxer. Who would have thought that he would later join the Belfast Lyric Players Heater, where he made his debut. It was here that Liam Neeson was spotted by director John Boorman and was cast in the film Excalibur, 1981, which dealt with the Arthurian legend.

In the early stages of his career, Liam Neeson played various role in low budget movies, until he was noticed by director Steven Spielberg. Spielberg was so impressed by his performance in Nell, opposite Jodie Foster, that he offered him the role that would establish him as a wonderful actor, Oskar Schindler, from Schindler’s List. Liam Neeson was critically acclaimed for his performance and it later earned him a nomination for a Best Actor Oscar. Liam Neeson garnered BAFTA and Golden Globes nominations for Schindler’s List. The movie, thus, established him as a very sought after actor. Liam Neeson went on to star, opposite John Malcovich, as Jean Valjean in the 1998 adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.

Here is some interesting information about Liam Neeson that you probably do not know. In his career’s recent years, Liam Neeson has often taken roles in which he is a mentor, trainer, father figure to a younger man, as in Batman Begins, Kingdom of Heaven, Gangs of New York and Star Wars Episode I -  The Phantom Menace. His character often must die early in the movie so that the young man can apply the Neeson character’s lessons to his ongoing struggle. Moreover, Liam Neeson frequently portrays characters based on real people, such as Rob Roy, Oskar Schindler, Michael Collins or Alfred Kinsey. Regardless of the role, Liam Neeson is a wonderful actor who can play in almost any role and receive positive critics.

Liam Neeson – A Great Actor

Filed under: Uncategorized - 19 Jan 2012  | Spread the word !

Liam Neeson is one of the greatest actors in Hollywood. He is best known for his roles from Schindler’s List, Star Wars, Love Actually and Clash of the Titans. Liam Neeson was born June 7, 1952, in Northern Ireland. At the age of eleven, Liam Neeson stepped on stage for the first time. His English teacher gave him the lead role in a school play, which he accepted because the girl he was attracted to was starring too. From then on, Liam Neeson kept on acting. Liam Neeson’s first acting break came in 1980, when the director John Boorman saw him on stage. He starred in five films in the 1980s, alongside Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins.

Director Steven Spielberg was very impressed with Liam Neeson’s role in Nell and consequently offered him the coveted role of Oskar Schindler in the Holocaust movie, Schindler’s List. Liam Neeson was critically acclaimed and earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. In my opinion, this role was one of the best of his career. Schindler’s List established Liam Neeson as a widely sought-after leading actor. The role of Oskar Schindler was perfectly calibrated by Liam Neeson. He transforms the character from a careless man, to a man who dedicates himself to saving more than 1000 lives. The selfishness imprinted on his face is so complete and unyielding that the audience immediately understands the extent to which Schindler is without scruples.

The facial expression of Liam Neeson hardly ever changes until he notices the liquidation of the ghetto.The way Liam Neeson calmly navigates Schindler through the encounters with Amon Goeth, masterfully interpreted by Ralph Fiennes, resembles a benefactor hiding under the guise of a businessman. Liam Neeson understood that Oskar Schindler was not a superhuman, he was just a man who had the vision to see the right thing in times of suffocating darkness, and to do the right thing when the opportunity arises. One thing is for sure, Liam Neeson is a wonderful and talented actor that conveys originality and a lot of feeling to his every role.

Liam Neeson has played the roles of many characters during his long career as an actor and will no doubt play the role of more in his future. One particular role that he was seen in was viewed by millions of Star Wars fans that watched Liam Neeson play the role of Qui-Gon Jinn in the first episode called the Phantom Menace.

The first episode of Star Wars even though it was the forth to be released starts the story off of how the intergalactic war began. In the beginning it was seen as a trade war however this was just the front for something more sinister. Two delegates from the Jedi Council were asked to negotiate with the traders however the blockage that is enforced around a planet destroys the Jedi Knight’s star ship and this begins the war.

Qui-Gon Jinn is the master Jedi who takes his young apprentice with him to learn the ways of the Jedi force. Liam Neeson plays the role perfectly as the leader of his duo and takes on the role of master and leader very well. Together the two Jedi manage to get back to the planet surface where they face an oncoming army. Their only hope is to establish communications with the Jedi Council and plead for help before it is too late.
