The veteran actor has decided to call it a career on action movie roles.
Liam Neeson has made a decision to call a halt on what he’s known best for.
The Taken star did an interview recently with The Independent and revealed all.
“I’m 68 and a half. There’s a couple more I’m going to do this year – hopefully, Covid allowing us.”
“There’s a couple in the pipeline and then I think that will probably be it,” he added.
Neeson has a busy start to 2021. His cartel move “The Marksman” is due out this month.

He’s also filming an action thriller known as “The Ice Road” where he plays an ice driver in a rescue mission over a frozen ocean.
It isn’t the first retirement of sorts. Neeson has teased at hanging up the action boots in the past.
But he added, “I’ve just finished one in Australia and I had a fight scene with a kid.”
“Halfway through the fight I looked up, I was breathless and it didn’t cost him a cent.
“I said, ‘Taylor, what age are you?’ He said, ’25.’ I said, ‘That’s the age of my eldest son!'”
