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.

We all loved Liam Neeson in the movies about Star Wars when he starred as one of the main characters in one of the first episodes, the Phantom Menace. He was magnificent as Oscar Schindler in Schindler’s List which is a movie that everyone should go and see, a truthful tale about one man trying to fight the Nazi’s with deceit and just by plain living. Liam has had many roles as an actor and his performances are always of the very best quality. He will no doubt be up for more awards as time goes on which will give him more chance to keep his fans happy.

In the Chronicles of Narnia he played a role that many people would not have known was him unless they read the titles. Aslan the lion was his character which was well played on his behalf for a movie that was mostly animated. In 2010 there is going to be a remake of the old TV series the A-team which will bring Liam Neeson in as the leader of the group, Hannibal. In Batman Begins and the movie Kingdom of Heaven he also plays some interesting roles which are very suited to his temperament and style of acting.

Not only has he appeared in animation as well as in flesh but Liam has also been a cartoon character. In the Simpsons episode where Bart is sent off to a catholic school, father Sean is there to guide him and get Bart out of a bit of trouble. His career has spanned for nearly 4 decades starting out in minor roles way back in the early 1970s. since then you can see Liam in over a dozen high quality films which are family rated and really worth watching.
