“I started being offered all these action scripts,” Liam recalled in an interview for Sunday TODAY. “And I’m going, “Wow. The lead is 29 years of age.’”

Liam admitted that he’d cross out the age and change it to “55, 56, 57.”

“I turn 70 this year, so I’m still getting away with it,” Liam added.

Liam further explained, “I think the action movies will draw to a close — they have to. Audiences aren’t stupid, you know. They’re gonna go, ‘Oh, f–k this guy, Liam Neeson. He’s got to be 71, 72, 73… .’ I’ll stop at some stage.”

Over the years, Liam has starred in action movies like Taken, Wrath of the Titans, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Run All Night, Honest Thief, Run All Night, and The A Team.

In another recent, Liam explained why he turned down the opportunity to play James Bond.
