Liam Neeson


This tall, earthy, stage-trained lead made his film debut in a small role in John Boorman's Excalibur (1981), and appeared in The Bounty (1984) and The Mission (1986) before becoming familiar to U.S. audiences as the deaf murder suspect in Suspect (1987), the obnoxious horror-film director in the Dirty Harry entry The Dead Pool and the accused child molester in The Good Mother (both 1988). After an unsuccessful stab at a Southern twang as Patrick Swayze's brooding brother in Next of Kin (1989), he impressively masked his Irish accent in his first lead in an American film, as the scientist turned masked avenger in Sam Raimi's Darkman (1990). Gaining in prominence with each successive role-and impressively busy-he has also starred in Crossing the Line (1991), Shining Through, Under Suspicion Woody Allen's Husbands and Wives (all 1992), Leap of Faith (also 1992, miscast as a sheriff), Ethan Frome, Deception (both 1993), and in a galvanizing Oscar-nominated performance as opportunist turned humanitarian Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List (also 1993). That same year, he received a Tony Award nomination for a Broadway revival of "Anna Christie" and later married his costar, Natasha Richardson. He starred again with Richardson in Nell (1994), then played Rob Roy (1995).
