Liam Neeson Biography

Liam Neeson was born on June 7, 1952, in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.

Neeson is the son of cook Katherine “Kitty” Neeson and primary school caretaker Bernard “Barney” Neeson and was born in Ballymena, County Antrim.

He was called Liam after a local priest since he was raised Catholic.

He has three sisters called Elizabeth, Bernadette, and Rosaleen, and is the third of four siblings.

“It would be fun to believe I came from a rebellious, rowdy Irish family,” he says, “but the reality was much greyer.” Yes, I’m Irish. But sobbing into your Guinness and singing rebel tunes, it was never my scene.”

He has characterized himself as “out of touch” with Northern Ireland politics and history until he became aware of student demonstrations following Bloody Sunday, a massacre in Derry in 1972 during the Troubles, which prompted him to study more about the region’s history.

Neeson began boxing instruction at the All Saints Youth Club when he was nine years old, and went on to win a series of provincial titles until retiring at the age of seventeen.

During his adolescence, he performed in school plays.

Ian Paisley, the founder of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), who he snuck into the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster, encouraged his interest in acting and determination to become an actor.

Education

From 1963 to 1967, he attended St Patrick’s College in Ballymena, where he developed an interest in play.

He previously stated he felt like a “second-class citizen” growing up as a Catholic in a largely Protestant town, but he also said he was never made to feel “inferior or even different” at the town’s predominantly Protestant technical college.

Career

Neeson returned to Ballymena after finishing university and worked in a number of part-time jobs, including forklift operator at Guinness and truck driver.

He joined Belfast’s Lyric Players’ Theatre in 1976 and performed there for two years.

After seeing him on stage as Lennie Small in Of Mice and Men in 1980, filmmaker John Boorman offered him the role of Sir Gawain in the Arthurian film Excalibur.

He played Peter Swan, a horror film director, in Clint Eastwood’s sixth Dirty Harry film, The Dead Pool, in 1988. He had a starring part in Sam Raimi’s Darkman in 1990.

In 1993, he appeared in the Broadway drama Anna Christie alongside his Ellis Island co-star and future wife Natasha Richardson.

He went on to act in the historical dramas Rob Roy (1995) and Michael Collins (1996), the latter garnering him a Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Venice Film Festival.

He played Jean Valjean in the 1998 adaption of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables and Dr. David Marrow in The Haunting (1999).

In Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Neeson played Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.

Journey into Amazing Caves, a short film about two scientists who travel across the world in search of material for potential treatments, and The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Adventure were both narrated by Neeson in 2001.

In 2004, Liam Neeson presented an edition of Saturday Night Live on NBC. In a “Appalachian Emergency Room” skit, he played a redneck trucker named Marlon Weaver, and a hippy in a one-off sketch about two stoners who want to borrow a police dog to retrieve their misplaced cache of marijuana.

In 2005, he starred as Godfrey of Ibelin in Ridley Scott’s epic adventure Kingdom of Heaven, as Ra’s al Ghul in Batman Begins, and as Father Bernard in Neil Jordan’s adaptation of Patrick McCabe’s novel Breakfast on Pluto.

Michael Bay claimed in the director’s commentary for the 2007 Transformers DVD that he urged the animators to look to Liam Neeson for inspiration when constructing Optimus Prime’s body language.

In 2008, Neeson played with Famke Janssen and Maggie Grace in the action picture Taken, directed by Pierre Morel and based on a scenario by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen.

In the remake of the 1981 film Clash of the Titans, Neeson played Zeus.

In 2011, Neeson participated in the action thriller Unknown, a German-British-American co-production based on a French novel directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and shot in Berlin in early 2010.

On January 31, 2014, it was announced that Liam Neeson would reunite with Martin Scorsese for a film adaptation of the novel Silence.

In 2016, Neeson narrated a three-part documentary on the 1916 Easter Rising for RTÉ One.

Private & early life

During the early 1980s, Neeson shared a home with actress Helen Mirren. They met on the set of Excalibur (1981). Neeson told Inside the Actors Studio’s James Lipton that Mirren was essential in obtaining him an agent.

In 1993, Neeson met actress Natasha Richardson while appearing in a Broadway version of the drama Anna Christie. They married on July 3, 1994, and they have two kids, Micheál and Daniel. They were awarded £50,000 ($85,370) in libel damages in October 1998 after the Daily Mirror incorrectly alleged that their marriage was in trouble.

Richardson died on March 18, 2009, at the Mont Tremblant Resort, northwest of Montreal, after suffering a severe brain injury in a skiing accident. Following her death, Neeson donated her organs.

Neeson was naturalized as an American citizen in 2009 and possesses Irish, British, and American citizenship.

In 2009, over four decades after completing his undergraduate studies in physics and computer science at Queen’s University, Belfast, he was conferred an honorary doctorate by Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Gregson in New York. He was named a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in March 2011.

Neeson’s representative dismissed rumors that he was converting to Islam in June 2012. Neeson has stated his love for the adhan, or Islamic call to prayer, which he became familiar with while filming Taken 2 in Istanbul: “It was as if I couldn’t live without it after the third week.

Kitty Neeson, Neeson’s mother, died in June 2020. Due to travel limitations imposed by the COVID-19 epidemic, he was unable to attend her burial in his hometown.
