While sitting down with Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, January 14, the Irish actor Liam Neeson. revealed that he plans on taking a step back from rigorous roles in the near future. Though the non-stop action is starting to take its toll, the Star Wars actor still has a soft spot for the genre.
He is 68 and a half. 69 this year, clarified Liam Neeson. There’s a couple more he’s going to do this year — hopefully, COVID allowing us — there’s a couple in the pipeline and, then he thinks that will probably be it.
He admitted that he loves it. Loves doing them, and loves beating up guys half his age. The Oscar winner previously starred alongside Christian Bale in Batman Begins (2006) and duked it out with worthy foes in the Taken trilogy, which hit theaters in 2008, 2012 and 2014.
In his latest film, The Marksman, Liam Neeson portrays a former Marine whose peaceful life in Arizona is disrupted when he tries to protect a young boy on the run from a dangerous cartel.
While the Schindler’s List star already had an impressive list of credits before becoming the go-to Hollywood heavy hitter he is now, the Taken franchise brought him a new phase of success. Two years after Taken 3 premiered, Liam Neeson shut down any possibility of another installment in the action-packed series.
