In 2013, he signed a deal to reprise his role in “Taken 3”, for which he received $20 million. In regards to his overall wealth, Liam Neeson’s net worth is estimated to be $75 million, most of which he has accumulated due to his acting career. Among his many valuable assets is a house in Millbrook, which cost him $3.7 million.

Liam Neeson was born in 1952, in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, where he studied at Queen’s University Belfast. While at the university, Neeson showed exceptional skills in football, as a result of which he was offered a possibility to play for Bohemian F.C. Neeson played one game for the team, before he left after failing to secure a contract. When he left the university, Neeson took up various jobs, which ranged from working at the “Guinness Brewery” to being a truck driver.

Neeson was noticed by John Boorman, who invited him to join the cast on his film called “Excalibur”. After that, Neeson received several other film roles, the most known being in Roger Donaldson’s “The Bounty” starring Mel Gibson, Anthony Hopkins and Laurence Olivier, and “The Mission” with Robert De Niro, Jeremy Irons and Aidan Quinn. More recently, in 2012, he starred in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”, played a character in “Battleship” with Taylor Kitsch and Rihanna, as well as “Taken 2”. Currently, Liam Neeson is filming for an upcoming horror film entitled “A Monster Calls” with Felicity Jones and Lewis MacDougall, which is scheduled to be released in 2016. He also appears in two other upcoming films, namely “Ted 2” and “Entourage”.

In regards to his personal life, he had been dating Helen Mirren before he met Natasha Richardson. The couple married in 1994 and lived together until 2009, when Richardson passed away due to an injury she suffered after a skiing accident. Neeson and Richardson had two children together.

#Fact
1 His character, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, was trained by Count Dooku, who was played by Christopher Lee. Lee ended up passing away on Neeson's birthday, June 7.
2 He has two roles in common with his The Bounty (1984) co-star Laurence Olivier: (1) Olivier played Zeus in Clash of the Titans (1981) while Neeson played him in the remake Clash of the Titans (2010) and its sequel Wrath of the Titans (2012) and (2) Olivier played General Douglas MacArthur in Inchon (1981) while Neeson played him in In-cheon sang-ryuk jak-jeon (2016).
3 For a couple of years, he was the original choice to play the lead role in Lincoln (2012), which would reunite his partnership with Steven Spielberg after their massive success with Schindler's List (1993). However, due to the many delays with the filming, Neeson felt he was too old for the role and he turned down, which went to Daniel Day-Lewis, who won his third Oscar for the role.
4 As of 2015, he has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: The Mission (1986), Schindler's List (1993) and Gangs of New York (2002). Of those, Schindler's List (1993) is the only one to have won the award.
5 Admitted in 2014 that he had to quit alcohol, after having began to quietly drink heavily following Natasha Richardson's death in 2009, and eventually drinking up to two to three bottles of wine per night.
6 Started acting in his early twenties, upon joining the Belfast Lyrics Players' theater.
7 Originally planned to become a teacher before discovering acting.
8 Is a huge fan of boxing and said that Muhammad Ali was the most famous boxer he ever met. Was an amateur boxer, a sport he started participating in at the age of 9. He had his last fight at age 17.
9 Neeson is a National Goodwill Ambassador to Ireland.
10 Suffers from acrophobia ("I get dizzy on a thick carpet," he once quipped to Jay Leno).
11 Regarding some rumors saying that he "felt like a puppet while working on Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)," Neeson said, "That's simply not true," and that he had "absolutely no misgivings" about being in "Star Wars," adding that Lucas was "very good" to work with. "He was clear about what he wanted," said Neeson.
12 Appeared with Daniel Day-Lewis in The Bounty (1984) and Gangs of New York (2002). Neeson later appeared on stage as John Proctor in a 2002 production of "The Crucible," a role played by Day-Lewis in the 1996 film version of the play. After dropping out of Steven Spielberg's biography of Abraham Lincoln, Neeson was replaced by Day-Lewis.
13 Friends with Ralph Fiennes, Henry Herman and Ciarán Hinds.
14 Received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Queen's University of Belfast, at the British consulate on May 6, 2009, in New York.
15 On March 16, 2009, his wife Natasha Richardson suffered a brain injury in a skiing accident. On March 18, 2009, she died in a hospital. Liam interrupted filming of his movie Chloe (2009) to be by her side.
16 In an interview with the BBC, he said that Northern Irish Protestant minister Ian Paisley influenced his decision to become an actor. Neeson used to sneak into the church in his hometown, Ballymena, and watch Paisley preach. "He had a magnificent presence and it was incredible to watch this six-foot-plus man just Bible-thumping away. It was acting but it was also great acting and stirring too".
17 Was considered for the role of Count Dracula in the cult classic The Monster Squad (1987), which went to Duncan Regehr.
18 Was Oliver Stone's first choice for the role of King Philip of Macedonia in Alexander (2004), which went to Val Kilmer.
19 Schindler's List (1993) is ranked #3 on the American Film Institute's 100 Most Inspiring Movies of All Time.
20 It was his role in Shining Through (1992) as a high Nazi party official that got him noticed by Steven Spielberg, and that eventually led to him being cast as Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List (1993).
21 Was twice nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actor (Play): in 1993 for a revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Anna Christie", and in 2002 for a revival of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible".
22 During the 1990s, he was very active with the Royal National Theatre in London, where he performed a wide range of Shakespeare's works.
23 Was an honorary board member of the CDS (Conference of Drama Schools) in England, which also included Sir Anthony Hopkins, Brian Cox, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole and Jeremy Irons, to name a few. The board oversaw all drama schools in England.
24 Auditioned for, and was accepted by, the Bristol Old Vic Drama School in England, but decided to attend the Gaiety School of acting instead so he could stay active with the Dublin Shakespeare Festival while in school.
25 Was chosen for the role of Gawain in Excalibur (1981) primarily because director John Boorman wanted a large man in the role for the duel between Gawain and Lancelot (Nicholas Clay). It was on this film where he met Helen Mirren, who was playing Morgana.
26 He recalled his most embarrassing moment in acting as when, relatively early in his career, he auditioned for the role of Fezzik, the giant in The Princess Bride (1987). Director Rob Reiner had a look of disgust on his face when he realized that Neeson was "only" six-feet-four. André the Giant ended up getting the role.
27 Is a member of the Dublin Shakespeare Theatre Festival, where his past credits include "Hamlet", "King Richard II" and "All's Well That Ends Well".
28 Attended and graduated from the Gaiety School of Drama in Dublin, Ireland.
29 Wanted to be in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999) so badly, he did not even bother reading the script.
30 Has worked repeatedly with Laura Linney, including in Kinsey (2004), Love Actually (2003), and in a Broadway revival of "The Crucible", playing husband and wife in Kinsey (2004) and "The Crucible". The two have joked about feeling like "an old married couple".
31 He was considered for the role of Van Helsing in Dracula (1992) (and reportedly very much wanted the role). However, he was turned down after Anthony Hopkins showed an interest in the role and ultimately got the role.
32 Was connected to David Lean's production of "Nostromo," but withdrew before preproduction began and Lean's subsequent death.
33 Brother-in-law of Joely Richardson.
34 Attended Queen's University of Belfast for a short while to study physics and computer science, but flunked out.
35 Was considered for the role of James Bond in GoldenEye (1995), which went to Pierce Brosnan.

39 Won a libel case against newspapers that claimed that his marriage was in trouble. [October 1998]
40 Was a boxer as a teenager in Northern Ireland, which resulted in getting his nose broken at age 15. Nevertheless, he went on to win the Irish Youth Championship. However, a brief blackout after one of his fights caused him to give up the ring for good.
41 Loves fly-fishing.
42 Has two sons with Natasha Richardson: Micheál Richard Antonio Neeson (born June 22, 1995) and Daniel Jack Neeson (born August 27, 1996).

44 Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#74) (1995).

#Quote
1 [on director Martin Scorsese] He's intimidating. He requires absolute silence on the set - if he hears one tiny sound, it shatters it for him.
2 I am attracted to characters who are loners, who operate by themselves. There's something mysterious, manly and stoic about them.
3 [on The A-Team (2010)] I watched it about two months ago and I found it a little confusing and I was in the thing. I just couldn't figure out who was who and what's been done to him and why, a little bit. I mean, my kids totally understood it and got it. I don't know. It's a toss of the coin, sometimes, with these things. I thought it was a great ride and Joe [Joe Carnahan] had done a great job. I thought it was cast well. But there you go - you never know.
4 [on losing the role of Lincoln (2012)] I don't feel sad about it, and I have no regrets whatsoever. There comes a point where you think "I'm past my sell-by date" and I passed that about three years ago. It's just like a light switch went off in my head: it just wasn't for me anymore. I'd lived with it too long and there was a process happening: Steven [Steven Spielberg] would do something else or I would do something else and it was like "Okay, let's cut this loose." They got one of the best actors to do it, you know, in Daniel Day-Lewis.
5 [on Gangs of New York (2002)] Martin [Scorsese] was interested in me for the part of Monk, that Brendan Gleeson played. But when I read it, I said, "No, I want to play this Priest Vallon character. It's a showier part." It was the perfect cameo, I think. You come in, do a bit of physical stuff, and then they talk about you for the rest of the movie. Meanwhile, I'm back home with my wife and kids, and they're still talking about me. It's great!
6 [on working with Julia Roberts in Michael Collins (1996)] I was surprised at first [when she was cast]. I thought, surely there's an actress in Ireland who can [play the role]; Neil [Jordan] doesn't need this star power. I thought maybe he was going to shoot himself in the foot. But she was very committed to doing it. I thought she was terribly good and I was very proud of her.
7 [on Nell (1994)] I was a bit disappointed in the film. I felt it should have been rougher and cruder and darker and colder. There was too much of a glow surrounding the movie. I thought Jodie [Foster] was very good, but, I mean, that house she lived in, that was, like, something out of Swiss Family Robinson! There should have been plastic chairs and windows with bits of newspaper stuck in them to stop the draft.
8 [on Schindler's List (1993)] I did a lot of research, but I found it was best not to do too much because I was playing a guy who lived in 1942, '43. If I'd read all the Holocaust literature, it would have played into my performance. Ignorance was bliss, certainly for Schindler.
9 [on Darkman (1990)] [The film] has rabid fans, especially in the black community, I've found. It's always the black dudes who are stopping me and giving me a high five. I saw Spider-Man (2002), and a lot of it was shot-for-shot Darkman.
10 Schindler's List (1993) is a very special movie on lots of fronts. It was a brilliant script and it was great to work with Steven Spielberg: I formed a close relationship with him.
11 Just look at the success of Taken (2008), for example. I thought it was going to be a straight-to-video release. That is actually one of the reasons I did it, to be honest. I felt like spending three months in Paris, I'd get to do all this physical stuff that no one would think of me for, and that the film would go straight to video. Then it became this big success. I was a tiny bit embarrassed by it, a tiny bit, but then people started sending me action scripts.
12 Even with action films, the fundamental for me is the writing. I adore writers, no matter what the genre is, and if it is a well-written piece of material then I am always very interested.
13 [on performing with Ralph Fiennes] On Clash of the Titans (2010) we found it hard to act with each other. So I would look at his forehead and he would look at my forehead, because sometimes, if we made eye contact, it got quite silly. We were more restrained on Wrath of the Titans (2012) because we had deeper, darker issues to act.
14 (on the state of his family after the death of Natasha Richardson) We're doing good. To be honest, we're taking each day as it comes.
15 I grew up in Northern Ireland, of course. Lived all through the Troubles; saw violence, the results of violence, at first hand. It's always terrified me and fascinated me. So it was a gut reaction, something about how that rage can eat you alive. I can understand that. I haven't known it myself, but I knew guys who did. Some of them aren't on this planet any more because of it.
16 In Los Angeles, it's like they jog for two hours a day and then they think they're morally right. That's when you want to choke people, you know?
17 Acting is invigorating. But I don't analyze it too much. It's like a dog smelling where it's going to do its toilet in the morning.
18 Some mornings you wake up and think, "Gee, I look handsome today." Other days I think, "What am I doing in the movies? I wanna go back to Ireland and drive a forklift".
19 Before Schindler's List (1993), I wouldn't have believed movies had a lot of power for social change. But having seen what happened with "Schindler's List", and touring the world with it, it really made me realize the power of images.
20 [on the widespread unemployment of actors and their fear of it] The truth is I love the insecurity part of it, it keeps me on my toes. I think you become bland and predictable without the stress and angst. There's a certain lethargy that sets in.
21 Laid-back? My wife said that? Well, I guess I am. It takes a lot to get me riled.
22 No, I don't get obsessed with acting. Because in the past when I have got obsessed about it, it really got in the way of the creative process. I've learned to hang the character on the coat-peg at the end of the day, and when I leave in the morning I pick it up again. And I had to work at that because the other way lies a strange sort of madness.
23 I think I realized there were two communities in Northern Ireland when I was about nine or 10, not because there was any trouble but because in certain years my parents would keep us indoors on the 12th of July. I couldn't figure that out, because all my mates were out dancing in the streets and I wanted to go out and join them. So it was then that I sensed a "them and us" attitude.
24 I never did think of myself as handsome--terribly attractive, yes, but not handsome.

#Trademark
1 Often plays agents or ex-agents in an unusual situation
2 Northern Irish accent
3 Deep gravelly voice
4 Towering height
5 Frequently portrays characters based on real people. (e.g. Rob Roy, Oskar Schindler, Michael Collins, Alfred Kinsey)
6 In his career's recent years, Neeson has very often taken roles in which he is a mentor/trainer/father figure to a younger man, as in, for example: Batman Begins (2005), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), Gangs of New York (2002) and Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). His character often must die early in the movie and/or the student's life so that the young man can apply the Neeson character's lessons to his own ongoing struggle.
