Liam Neeson says he is retiring from actions films”

Neeson, who had spent the majority of his career as a dramatic actor before appearing in the first of the Taken series in 2008, told Entertainment Tonight that he'll hang up his fists of fury after finishing some projects now in the works.

He told U.S. show Entertainment Tonight: "I'm 68 and a half, 69 this year". 69 this year. There are a few more that I'm going to do this year - I hope COVID allows us - there are a few in the pipeline and, then I think that's probably all.

Neeson will next play retired Marine-turned-rancher Jim Hanson in Robert Lorenz's Mexican border action thriller "The Marksman".

He added: "I love doing them. I love beating up guys half my age", he said, though he admitted he had something of a revelation while filming his next film, Blacklight. I've simply completed one in Australia and I had a combat scene with a child, pretty, candy actor known as Taylor, and midway by means of the combat I seemed up, I used to be breathless and it didn't price him a cent, and I stated, "Taylor, what age are you?'".

Liam Neeson said he is getting too old to continue in action films

Neeson can now be seen in the action film The Marksman. He said "25". I said, "This is the age of my oldest son!"

"I guess so, of course".

Born Liam John Neeson, Neeson has been nominated for several awards, including an Academy Award for Best Actor, a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, and three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.

Neeson famously portrayed the God of Thunder in Louis Leterrier's "Clash of the Titans" and recently Warner Bros. officially greenlit the Wonder Woman threequel on December 27. For the longest time, he was thought of as a serious dramatic performer - the type of actor who starred in titles like Schindler's List.
