A to Z Challenge: My Favorite Storytellers-- N

I'm stepping back off of writers again, and giving a nod to the fact that actors are equally deserving of recognition for being great storytellers, and today's featured actor is certainly an amazing example of this:

Liam Neeson

I love Liam Neeson's voice, and am continually amazed by how astoundingly talented this man his. Here are just a few highlights of my favorite Liam Neeson movies:

High Spirits- A goofy 1988 comedy staring NOT Liam Neeson but...wait for it... Steve Gutenberg. But Liam is a bright spot in this incredibly silly movie as an abusive, ghostly husband.

Rob Roy- I've not read the book, I admit, but Liam Neeson makes you CARE about cattle theft in Scotland in this film.

Love Actually- I watch this movie CONSTANTLY, and Liam Neeson's portrayal of the widower bonding with his stepson is a major reason why.

In addition, lets not forget that this man was Oscar Schindler, Darkman, Qui Gon Jin, and Henri Ducard. He is truly a part of today's media cannon.


  1. I know I've seen a lot of his movies, but the only one I remember is Schindler's List. I remember him most as the husband who lost his beloved wife in a skiing accident.

  2. Greetings!
