Los Angeles, Jan 15 (IANS): Hollywood star Liam Neeson says he will retire from action movies after this year.
“I’m 68 and a half — 69 this year. There’s a couple more (action films) 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,” Neeson said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, according to a people.com report.
Neeson has been acting since the mid-1970s but he shot to fame playing Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s much-feted 1993 hit, “Schindler’s List”. Global superstardom as an action star came with the 2008 release “Taken”.
In his latest action film “The Marksman”, he plays a former Marine turned rancher who must leave his life of solitude to protect an 11-year-old boy from drug cartel assassins.
