Diane Kruger, who co-stared with Liam Neeson in “Unknown,” has described the Irish actor as “mythical.”
“Unknown” tells the tale of a botanist who wakes up from a coma to find out that his identity has been stolen.
Kruger plays Gina, a young woman driving a cab containing Neeson that ends up crashing into the water.
Speaking about the new movie, Kruger said she was delighted to collaborate with Neeson.
“There's something almost mythical about a man like Liam Neeson. It's like he's been chiseled out of granite. Solid Irish granite, at that. I was thrilled to get a chance to work with him, and he proved to be just as sweet and centered and towering as I had imagined,” she told movies.ie.
“I'm sure [all Irish men] are [like that], I'm sure they are. There is something special about the Irish, and I think most of you know that. And you use it to your advantage, right? I know I'm a sucker for that old Irish charm.”Click here to see Liam Neeson's profile page
