Liam Neeson. Heartbreak and Hard Work

Liam Neeson
Liam Neeson lost his wife, Natasha Richardson, to a skiing accident in 2004.  He has tried to move on, but still feels the loss, and it often hits him in the middle of the night, like a blow to the gut.  

Neeson has had one of the most incredible careers that any actor could wish for, and a lot of his best work has been in big films.  Of course that is just my opinion.  I also enjoyed his roles in lesser films, like 2009's Chloe, which featured numerous sex scenes with a young Amanda Seyfried, all of which turned out to be in the imagination of Julianne Moore, who played his wife.  I guess that is a spoiler, but the film is three years old.


Neeson starred in Schindler's List (1993), which really put him in the public eye with a best actor Oscar nomination.  But look at his other starring roles: Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999); Batman Begins (2005); Taken (2008).  He played Robert Roy MacGregor in Rob Roy (1995), and Michael Collins in Michael Collins (1996).  I have really enjoyed all of his film performances.  He has thrown himself into his work since his wife's death, while also raising their two sons.  He has several movies to be released in 2012 including The Gray, Wrath of the Titans, and Battleship. He is also filming a Batman sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, as well as a sequel to 2008's Taken, for now simply known as Taken II
