Neeson in Schindler's List.
William John Neeson is Liam Neeson's birth name. Neeson made a fantastic screen debut in the role of Sir Gawain in the film Excalibur, in 1981. He played in various lesser-known films, until he played the benevolent war profiteer who managed a factory, and saved hundreds of people from extermination in Steven Spielberg's, Schindler's List. With his Irish accent, cat-like grace and handsome looks, (broken nose notwithstanding) Neeson has been sought-after for many leading roles in films.
Neeson went on to more leading roles as an adulterer who gets his just desserts in Ethan Frome, the doctor who helps the mute protagonist to rehabilitation in Nell, the noble rebel in Rob Roy, the political rebel in Michael Collins, and the prisoner Valjean in Les Miserables. He also played to great acclaim in the movie Kinsey and played memorable leading roles in Gangs Of New York, Love Actually, Batman Begins, Clash Of The Titans and The A-team.
In 1984 Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson first worked together in the TV mini-series Ellis Island. A decade later they were married and had two sons together. Natasha died from injuries sustained in a skiing accident in Canada in 2009. She was the daughter of Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson.
In 1993, Liam Neeson made his Broadway debut in Anna Christie, and received a nomination for his role in the play. Natasha Richardson was his co-star. They also co-starred in the Jodie Foster movie Nell.
In 1995 Liam Neeson was chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history.
