Liam Neeson says he's no action star

February 16th, 2011

Liam Neeson doesn't see himself as an action star.

Although the 58-year-old actor has taken on extremely physical roles in movies 'The A Team', 'Taken' and 'Unknown' in recent years he doesn't think of himself as one type of actor even though he does love "flexing his muscles".

Liam said: "I don't see myself as an action star, although hopefully we'll do a 'Taken 2' in my 60th year. It's nice, I like being physical and getting to flex those muscles. I feel like a kid in a toys shop, it's great."

Although the Irish-born actor plays a scientist in new movie 'Unknown' he admitted it does have similarities to 'Taken' where he played a special forces operative whose daughter is taken hostage.

He explained to "It's a different character, it's a different scenario but the similarity in this film is the authorities have taken my identity and I have to find it again. I have to seek out who I am. In 'Taken' they stole my daughter but here I know who I am the authorities are saying I'm not who I am."
