3. Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace
Every actor has one project that introduces them to a new and much bigger audience that they may have had issues connecting with. For Liam Neeson, Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace was that movie. I know what you’re thinking, The Phantom Menace was overall a pretty bad movie, but this isn’t about that. This is about Qui-Gon Jinn, the Jedi Master of Obi Wan Kenobi and who discovered the “Chose One” who would become Darth Vader. For every Star Wars fan, for every science fiction fan, and for every movie lover in general, this movie was Liam Neeson’s big push into the world of science fiction and the massive amount of fans that follow it.
