Liam Neeson Biography

Born in Northern Ireland in 1952, Liam Neeson began pursuing an acting career in the mid-1970s. His breakout role came with the Holocaust drama Schindler’s List, for which he garnered an Academy Award nomination. Neeson also starred in Star Wars: Episode I and Kinsey, before claiming a string of action-hero roles in flicks like Taken. He has also supplied voice work for hit family films like The Chronicles of Narnia and The LEGO Movie.

Liam Neeson was born on June 7, 1952, in Ballymena, Northern Ireland. Before becoming a world-famous actor, he forged a promising career in boxing as a juvenile champion.

Neeson left behind boxing to study physics and computer science at Queen’s University, but soon left the school to go work for Guinness, before returning to academics at a teachers’ training college.

Switching gears to pursue an interest in acting, Neeson joined the Lyric Players’ Theatre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1976, and then the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Along with appearing on stage, he earned his first film credits around this time, in Pilgrim’s Progress (1978) and Christiana (1979).

The following decade brought increased exposure for the strapping actor, beginning with his role of Sir Gawain in the Arthurian fantasy Excalibur (1981). Other notable films from this period include The Bounty (1984), with Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins, The Mission (1986), with Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons, and Suspect (1987), with Cher and Dennis Quaid.

Neeson claimed his first leading role in the superhero thriller Darkman (1990). However, it was his performance in Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List (1993), about a German businessman who saved the lives of more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust, that led to wide-scale recognition and an Academy Award nomination.

The actor went on to headline such noted films as Nell (1994), Rob Roy (1995) and Michael Collins (1996), as well as an adaptation of Les Misérables (1998). In 1999, he landed the role of Jedi mentor Qui-Gon Jinn in the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.
