Rachel's Latest Conversation With Liam! 🎫
Interviewing #LiamNeeson today for his new movie #TheMarksman, let me know if you have any questions you’d like me… https://t.co/k6d6F1wkuy— RACHEL SMITH (@RACHEL SMITH)1610391988.0
In our latest one-on-one segment, Rachel Smith chatted with Liam Neeson to get the ins and outs on The Marksman.
Starting the convo, Smith said:
"I love that 'The Marksman' has all of the awesome 'Liam Neeson' action that we love... but also, at the center of it, is this really sweet, kind of unexpected story. I have to imagine as a father, was that something really appealing to you?"
Neeson quickly opened about to Smith about his new pivotal role.
"Yes, yes it was. I think I've made 63, 64 films, and quite a few of those, I've worked with children over the years, and it was just a joy to get to work with and get to know little Jacob Perez," Neeson said.
The 11-year-old newcomer took the screen opposite Neeson, but despite Neeson's notably impressive resume, Perez actually hadn't heard of any of his movies... except for one -- Star Wars.
"We were sitting on the truck, and they were changing the lights or something. I think Jacob said.. 'how many movies have you made?'
So I mentioned a few... [he] didn't recognize anything. Then I mentioned 'Star Wars,' and he was like 'You were in Star Wars?!" Neeson said.
Well, no matter if you're a new or old fan of Neeson's, you can see him tackle his thrilling new role in The Marksman, in theaters now!
