Liam Neeson as The Monster
Liam Neeson received Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, and BAFTA Award nominations for his performance as Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Best Picture Oscar winner Schindler’s List.
Three years later, he played the title role in Neil Jordan’s biopic Michael Collins, earning another Golden Globe nomination and winning an Evening Standard British Film Award and the 1996 Venice International Film Festival’s Volpi Cup for Best Actor.
Mr. Neeson garnered his third Golden Globe nomination, an Independent Spirit Award nomination, and won a Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for his portrayal of Alfred Kinsey in Bill Condon’s Kinsey (2004).
He will next be seen on-screen in Martin Scorsese’s Silence and Peter Landesman’s Felt. Mr. Neeson has appeared in over 70 films, including the blockbuster Taken trilogy; Joe Carnahan’s The Grey; Bille August's Les Misérables; George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace; Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins; Richard Curtis’ Love Actually; and Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York.
Mr. Neeson made his Broadway debut in 1993, receiving a Tony Award nomination for his performance in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Eugene O’Neill’s 1921 drama Anna Christie.
He is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and a proud father of two sons.
The role of Conor is a very demanding one, physically and emotionally. Lewis was so courageous, so present, so truthful.
MacDougall is fantastic in what should be considered an Academy Award-worthy performance.
And if you need to break things, then by God, you break them good and hard. And I'll be right there. You might not see me, but I'll be right there, breaking 'em along with you.
I saw this as a powerful and important story to tell as a movie – an adventure that anyone can relate to.
