I just finished reading Liam's biography today. (all 19? pages)
Except for a few statements and or words here and there, that were a bit over my head. (not a lot, just a bit)
It was very interesting and I learned quite a bit. I even shared some of Liam's story, with my son (the deer accident).
But in the very last paragraph, I was totally baffled.
I'm not a fan of acronyms, and really wish it was not an accepted, normal form of communication. (We just can't seem to learn the connection with: War and inaccurate communication/information.)
After mentioning his ambassadorship, it says "He even has an "OBE" to prove it."
I do not know what OBE is?
In the quote below this sentence, I'm not sure if I'm reading it correctly
"What he doesn't have, is a major acting honour under his belt, a quite outrageous situation."
In my opinion:
If many people were in a room talking about Will Smith. Most every one would know who they meant.
If many people were in a room, talking about Liam Neeson. Most might say, "Who?". But once it was established who every one had been talking about. Or for SURE a photo of him. I'd bet most all would say, "OH! I know who you're talking about. Yeah, I love him, he's an outstanding actor.
But since the world seems to be focused on "NAMES AND MONEY AND GOSSIP" I understand what the end of the article meant. And yes................it is quite an outrageous situation.
I had seen a clip of Taken, a few weeks before it came out.
From the moment I saw it, I knew exactly who he was.
I knew I'd seen him for many years in different roles. I just couldn't place him with exacts.
When I read about Jodie Foster and "Nell". It was then I remembered. My late friend Betsy took me to that years ago, and thought it was awesome. (Of coarse I probably said to myself..........I've seen that guy sooooo many times. What's his name?(I'd never forget that name, so I probably didn't even ask what it was. "my bad" sorry)
His name might not be at the tip of every one's tongue's.
But I'd bet most ALL know him.
I'm soooo glad he did this role in Taken. It Satisfied soooo many emotional, and stressful feelings inside. It was very relieving. I LOVED IT!
I think his name is THE COOLEST NAME EVER! mine is just a pain is the.....@#%$.................
