Even if you do not know it, you are likely to have seen Liam Neeson in a film. This Irish actor has been in so many fantastic films, and been nominated for Oscars and Baftas left, right and centre throughout his career. He is probably best known for playing Oscar Schindler in the world renowned film Schindler’s List (based on the true story of Oscar Schindler during the Second World War), but has played leading roles in Star Wars 1 (the Phantom Menace), The Chronicles of Narnia and Batman Begins. Indeed, he is possibly one of the best and most iconic British actors to have arisen in the last 50 years.

What is interesting about Liam Neeson is that he has remained relatively detached from, what we would usually consider to be, the celebrity lifestyle. It is very rare that he will appear on television or in magazines; usually only when he is promoting a film that he is in. It is no surprise, therefore, that not many people know about his personal life. Liam Neeson was married to actress Natasha Richardson between 1994 and 2009, when she tragically lost her life in a skiing accident. After a fall and a bang to the head, she appeared to be completely fine and was able to stand, walk and talk normally. After returning to her hotel room she was admitted to hospital 3 hours later complaining of a headache. She went into a critical condition about 7 hours after the fall and died 2 days later.

The biggest single role that has won dozens of awards including best actor and best movie would have to be for Schindler’s List starring Liam Neeson as Schindler himself. This was a very powerful movie about the holocaust which killed millions of Jewish people during the Second World War. Schindler was a non fictional character that helped many of the Jewish people live because he was able to offer them work. Little children would work in his factories so that they would not be sent off to the firing squad or even worse the gas chamber. Schindler was able to give his own back by making parts for the Nazi’s which did not work like explosives and ammunition that was worthless. Liam has had many other roles as an actor but this role as Schindler would have done the greatest thing for his reputation as an actor not only because of his great acting but also because the movie itself was such a success.

Another one of Liam’s movie roles was as Qui-Gon Jinn who was a Jedi Knight in the first of the Star War series which was actually the forth movie made by Lucas. Unfortunately for Liam his character died in a final battle at the end of the movie which meant that he could not move onto the next movies like Ewan McGregor who made it through all three of the series. Love actually is another movie which stars Liam in it and is one that should be seen because of the movie itself as well as the actors. He played a role as one of the voices in the Simpson TV series. Father Sean was his name in this series which he played the role for on a few different occasions. He was also the voice of Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia which was a very big box office hit when it first came out and is now one of the more popular selling DVDs for kids to watch. In 2010 we look forward to seeing him play the role of a God in the movie Clash of the Titans which will be screening in a few months time.
