Description

School friends of Liam Neeson, remember the early days of his career and his first acting endeavours.

Joe O'Neill, chats about the chorus society in town which sparked a new drama group and thus provided Liam with his first acting experience. He recalls his presence whilst on stage and how he was "always a great mover". Joe, also gives insight into how determined Liam was, as he gave up secure employment in Ballymena for a 6 week contract with the Lyric Theatre in Belfast.

Tony McAvoy, rememberers Liam fondly from his boxing days and how he seemed to be good at everything. Over at Liam's old secondary school, St Patrick's, journalist Billy digs up an article which he wrote about Liam, where he calls him "the star of the production without doubt".
