Tomorrow (June 7) Hollywood star and proud Irishman Liam Neeson turns 63 years old. Especially for his birthday we thought we’d hunt down his most popular clips on YouTube.
Neeson, from Ballymena, County Antrim, has been a star of the silver screen for over 34 years. His career runs from John Boorman’s “Excalibur” in 1981, to his Oscar-winning performance in “Schindler’s List” in 1993 right through to his newly invented role as the father figure turned action hero.
It turns out that as well as his 2015 Super Bowl commercial for “Clash of Clans: Revenge” it was his role as Bryan Mills in the “Taken” franchise and his hero role in “Non-Stop” that has really spiked interest in the public.
However, in our opinion, the star of this list is Neeson’s deadpan comedy in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s “Life’s too Short.” Number five with a bang! We won’t give it away but that one’s certainly worth a watch and a giggle.
