Hollywood movie actor, Liam Neeson has revealed he quitting acting, after a couple of projects.
Best know for his role in the 2008 movie ‘Taken’ said he knows he doesn’t have long left in the industry, as he prepares to turn 69 in June.
Speaking to ET about his future in the Hollywood movie industry, he said: “I’m 68 and a half. 69 this year. There’s a couple more I’m going to do this year — hopefully, COVID allowing us — there’s a couple in the pipeline and, then I think that will probably be it. Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something.”
“Well, unless I’m on a Zimmer frame or something,” he added.
Movie lover will once again see Neeson in his new featured movie “The Marksman” which is explain to hit the big screen this month, as he cast as an ex-Marine turned reclusive rancher who must protect an 11-year-old boy from drug cartel assassins.
Also currently working on action thrillers Blacklight and The Ice Road, which tells the story of an ice driver who is trying to save the life of a group of trapped miners by making the perilous journey over a frozen ocean.
His next project will be Memory – a film in which he stars as an assassin-for-hire who refuses a kill commissioned by a dangerous bunch of criminals, who then set their sights on him instead.
The only other films currently slated for Neeson are Charlie Johnson in the Flames and Marlowe.
Neeson told ET that felt ready to quit the big screen, adding that he would miss “beating up guys half [his] age”.
“I love doing them, he said “I’ve just finished one in Australia and I had a fight scene with a kid — lovely, sweet actor called Taylor — and halfway through the fight I looked up, I was breathless and it didn’t cost him a cent, and I said, ‘Taylor, what age are you?’ He said, ’25.'” and “I said, ‘That’s the age of my eldest son!'”
