Liam Neeson’s net worth is $75 million. The tragic past of a Hollywood superstar – it sounds like something out of a movie, but the actor who first found international fame in Schindler’s List is living the role rather than playing it. Two years ago, Neeson’s actress wife, Natasha Richardson, died after a skiing accident in Canada. Since then, the father of two teenage sons, Michael and Daniel, has sought solace in work, starring in a number of films, including the action thriller Unknown, which has just been released. At 58, he is also expected to appear in the sequel to Taken, the film that first unleashed the action hero in him. “I’m a single parent now. I have to pay the bills,” he said recently. “Since my wife died, I’ve definitely focused on big-budget films.” Born and raised in Ballymena, County Antrim, Neeson was called Liam after his local priest. But his decision to become an actor was influenced by another big man – Ian Paisley, the flamboyant Protestant politician, whose church the Catholic Neeson would sneak into. He has said of Paisley: “He had a great presence and it was incredible to see this man over 6ft tall just thumping a Bible.” Neeson went to Queen’s University in 1971 to study physics and computer science, then returned to Ballymena, where he worked a variety of casual jobs, from working as a fork-lift operator at Guinness to driving a truck. In 1976, he joined the Lyric Theatre in Belfast before moving to Dublin and the famous Abbey Theatre. His first break into films came in 1981, when John Boorman offered him the role of Gawain in Excalibur. He has since made dozens of films, which have grossed $5.7 billion at the box office. In 2006, he was said to be earning £5m-£9m a film. He lives in a luxurious home spread across 16 acres in New York State.
