Liam (LEE-uhm)

Common clue: Neeson of “Schindler’s List”

Liam Neeson is an actor who was born as William John Neeson on June 7, 1952 in Ballymena, Northern Ireland.

He has had roles in at least 20 films including “Star Wars: Episode I”, “Les Miserables”, and “Rob Roy”.  He was nominated for a best actor Oscaar for his role in “Shindler’s List” in 1993.

Dancing was never Liam Neeson's strongest suit: "I remember, when I started seriously courting at the age of 24, going to a dance in Belfast and fancying this girl and wondering how I could buy her a lemonade... We're dancing away and I thought, 'I have to ask her: Do you want to come over [and get a lemonade].' And she read my thoughts and said, 'Do you want to sit down? Your feet are killing me.'"


Liam Neeson might soon be playing the celebrated American President Abraham Lincoln as the actor is currently in talks with director Steven Speilberg to take on the lead role in the film, which will follow the US leader as he guides the North to victory in the Civil War.


The star of "Schindler's List" hinted that a top-secret cameo with co-star Samuel L. Jackson was recently shot for "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith", reported

But Neeson has refused to give details about the project. "I can't speak about it. Jedi code of ethics," he joked.
