Contents

Early Life

He is the son of Katherine "Kitty" (née Brown), a cook, and Barnard "Barney" Neeson, a caretaker at the local Catholic girls' primary school. Before his acting career, he had worked as a fork-lift driver at a Guinness factory, and a truck driver. He even spent a short amount of time enrolled in the Bohemians, a professional Irish football club, due to prowess in football while he was enrolled in college.

Career

In his first film appearance, he starred as Jesus Christ in the religious film Pilgrim's Progress directed by Ken Anderson. His movie and TV roles include Oskar Schindler in the 1993 film Schindler's List, the Star Wars prequel trilogy as Qui-Gon Jin, The Chronicles of Narnia where he voiced Aslan and Batman Begins as Ra's al Ghul.

He has also played real-life characters, including Michael Collins and Alfred Kinsey. He will be starring as Abraham Lincoln in a biographical film Lincoln due for release in 2011.

Fallout Series Participation

Neeson was the voice actor for the Lone Wanderer's Father, James. Being in a main role in Fallout 3, Neeson recorded a considerable amount of dialogue for the game. The game designers intended the character model of James to be very similar to the stance, behaviors and traits of Neeson (even the model is similar to an extent). "It’s been a pleasure bringing the father to life and working with the wonderfully talented people at Bethesda on Fallout 3", said Neeson. “I hope the fans of the franchise and the game will be excited by the results."

Other work of note

William John "Liam" Neeson was born in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, the the son of Katherine "Kitty" (née Brown), a cook, and Barnard Neeson, a caretaker at the local Catholic girls' school. He was the third child in the family and the only boy among four siblings; his sisters are Elizabeth, Bernadette and Rosaline. June 7, 1952) Neeson is an Academy Award-nominated Irish actor. He was raised as a Roman Catholic in the predominantly Protestant and Unionist town of Ballymena in Northern Ireland and later attended Queen's University of Belfast. However, he left the university without graduating. Neeson played Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace, and his voice can be heard in Attack of the Clones after Anakin Skywalker murders the Tusken Raiders saying "Anakin! Anakin! Noo!". He was slated to be heard in a scene with Yoda in Revenge of the Sith, but it was cut from the final film.

At age nine, Neeson began boxing lessons at the All Saints Youth Club. It was at age eleven that Neeson first stepped on stage. His English teacher gave him the lead role in a school play, which he accepted because the girl he fancied would be starring. From then on, he kept acting in school productions for the following years. His interest in acting and decision to become an actor was also influenced by Ian Paisley whose church Neeson would sneak into. Neeson has said of Paisley that "He had a magnificent presence and it was incredible to watch this six foot-plus man just bible-thumping away...It was acting but it was also great acting and stirring too. And his Baptisms skills are second to none." Still boxing at sixteen, he had been Youth Heavyweight Champion of Ireland for three consecutive years, aided by his height of six foot three.

Arguably, Neeson's most famous role is that of Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg's epic Schindler's List (1993). The role won Neeson an Academy Award nomination. The film itself won both Best Picture and Best Director, and Neeson's co-star, Ralph Fiennes, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

More recently, Neeson voiced the lion Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), an adaptation of the C.S. Lewis children's story. He reprised the role in the sequel, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008). He also played Batman's corrupt mentor Henri Ducard / Ra's al Guhl in Batman Begins (2005). Neeson also played the character of Bryan in the movie "Taken".
