Today Roqoo Depot wishes actor Liam Neeson a very happy birthday. Mr. Neeson is most famous to Star Wars fans for his portrayal of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. However, movie goers will most likely remember him for his performance in Schindler’s List, as well as other notable films including the more recent Gangs of New York, Batman Begins, the voice of Aslan in the Chronicles of Narnia films, and his recent hits Taken and The A-Team. He’s also voiced Qui-Gon Jinn in The Clone Wars television series when his character appeared in the Mortis Trilogy.

Liam Neeson was born in Northern Ireland. Before becoming an actor he work numerous jobs including a forklift operator for Guinness, truck driver, assistant architect, and amateur boxer. He initially wanted to be a teach and attended St. Mary’s Teaching College in Belfast but his intentions quickly changed when he joined the Belfast Lyric Players’ Theater and debut in the play “The Risen People.” His first film role was as Gawain in the 1981 movie Excalibur. More acting roles followed until he gained notability as Carl Wayne Anderson, a homeless, deaf-mute man who is accused of murder in the 1987 film Suspect.

Mr. Neeson is currently in three projects slated for release next year: The Grey, Battleship, and Wrath of the Titans, sequel to Clash of the Titans.
