Liam Neeson Says He's Retiring From Action Films

Liam Neeson Says He's Retiring From Action Films

Liam Neeson has revealed he's retiring from action films.

The Oscar-nominee said he's too old for the genre, despite the fact he loves doing them.

Speaking to ET about whether the time has come for him to take a step back, the Northern Irish actor said: "Oh, yeah. I think so. 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."

But although he's decided to leave the genre, he did admit that he'll miss 'beating up guys half my age.'

He added: "I love doing them.

"I've just finished [Blacklight] 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?'

Liam Neeson Wants To Be In Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ TV Series

published ata month ago

And while the Taken star might be giving up his tough guy characters, he's still got ambitions within the film industry.

With the upcoming Star Wars TV series focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi, there could be a last-minute character inclusion if Liam Neeson has anything to do with it.

The actor, who played Obi-Wan's Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, was asked whether he would be up for a cheeky cameo in the series.

He told Collider he hasn't been approached by Disney to appear in the series or even heard about the show. But when quizzed on his thoughts if that call ever came through, Neeson replied with: "Sure, I'd be up for that, yeah."

It's unclear how he would even be able to do that considering his character was pierced through the stomach with Darth Maul's double lightsaber in an intense duel in the first prequel.

But the show could do a flashback to Obi-Wan's training day or Disney could employ a classic Star Wars trope and bring Qui-Gon Jinn in as a Force Ghost.
