Life of Liam Neeson

Liam Neeson was born on June 7, 1952, in Northern Ireland. He rose to the limelight when he acted as Oscar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List. This opened opportunities for him in big-budget films such as Taken, Batman Begins, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Taken II, Kinsey, The Chronicles of Narnia and Les Miserables among others.

Due to his great performance, he has been nominated for a number of awards such as Academy Award for Best Actor, Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama and BAFTA Award for the Best Actor in a Leading Role.

Early Life

Neeson was born in Northern Ireland in a small town called Ballymena in County Antrim.  He is the third born of four siblings. He has three sisters: Rosaline, Elizabeth, and Bernadette. Neeson began boxing at the age of nine. This took place at All Saints Youth Club. This happened before he became Ulster’s amateur senior boxing champion. Neeson first started acting when his English teacher assigned him a lead role during a school play.

He was aged eleven years old then. Starting at that point, he never stopped acting. His high interest in acting was equally influenced by Ian Paisley, a minister at the local Presbyterian Church. Neeson liked watching Paisley because he always had a controlling presence during his bible teaching at the church.

Neeson started attending Queen’s University Belfast in 1971 to pursue a course in physics and computer science. Later on, he left to work for Guinness Brewery. While at Queen’s Neeson discovered that he had a football talent. That is how he ended up being seen hanging out at Bohemian F.0 and socializing with Sean Thomas.

He went as far as attempting a dub trial in Dublin where he played as a substitute during a game against Shamrock Rovers. Despite that, he did not get the contract.

Career

Immediately after leaving university in 1978, Neeson stayed at Ballymena where he worked in a number of casual jobs. At one point he worked as a fork-lift driver at Guinness Breweries. Later on, he worked as a truck driver. For two years Neeson attended a teacher training college in Newcastle. After the training, he returned to his hometown.

In 1976 Neeson became a member of Lyric Players’ Theatre in Belfast. He performed for two years with this band. His first chance to act in a film came in 1977 when he played the role of Jesus Christ and Evangelist in Pilgrim’s Progress. In 1978, Neeson moved to Dublin to take a role in Says I, Says He directed by Ron Hutchinson.

He also joined Abbey Theatre to hone his skills further. In 198o, John Boorman gave Leeson a role in Of Mice and Men. He acted as Lennie Small. Later on, he played Sir Gawain in Arthurian film Excalibur. After shooting Excalibur, Neeson moved to London where he continued with his acting career focusing on television and small budget films.

At this time, he lived with Helen Mirren who he had first met while acting on Excalibur. Neeson starred in five films between 1982 and 1987. The most notable were Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson in 1984. He worked alongside Anthony Hopkins and Mel Gibson. He took a role in the Bounty (1984) where he worked alongside Robert De Niro. He also worked with Jeremy Irons in The Mission (1986).

Neeson was a guest actor during the third series (guest-starred) in the Miami Vice television series. In 1986 he moved to Hollywood to take high profile roles in the acting industry. In his first year at Hollywood, Liam Neeson starred alongside Dennis Quaid and Cher in Suspect. This is the role that brought him great popularity. He again starred in Darkman (1990) with a high level of success.

The subsequent movies did not bring him as much acclaim. In took a role in the Broadway Anna Christie where he joined his wife-to-be Natasha Richardson. Natasha was a co-star at Ellis Island. The two again worked together in Nell which was released in 1994. During the 1994 Van Morrison tribute, Neeson recited “Coney Island” a Van Morrison song. The album No Prima Donna: The Songs of Van Morrison was released in his memory.

Schindler’s List

Neeson was offered a role in the film the Holocaust, Schindler’s List to act as Oskar Schindler by director Steven Spielberg. The Director made his decision after seeing Neeson in Broadway’s Anna Christie. Warren Beatty, Kevin Coster, and Mel Gibson had also expressed interest in playing Schindler at the last auditioning. Neeson formally auditioned for the role and was subsequently cast in December 1992.

Neeson’s performance in Holocaust, Schindler’s List was superb and it earned him a nomination for a Best Actor Oscar and the film earned the Best Picture in 1993. Despite that, the Best Actor award was given to Tom Hanks for his role in Philadelphia. For his role as Oskar Schindler, Neeson also got nominated for the Golden Globes and BAFTA awards.

After these accolades, Neeson was in high demand as a leading actor. In 1995 Neeson starred in period pieces Rob Roy and then Michael Collins (1996). As a result of his roles, he won the Best Starring Role during the Venice Film Festival in addition to a second Golden Globe nomination.

In the Haunting (1999), he starred as Dr. David Marrow. This was an adaptation from Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.

Star Wars

In 1999, Neeson starred in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Neeson was cast in this film by George Lucas, the director. The director considered Neeson to be highly skilled and he described him as a master actor. This was the first Star Wars film to be released in sixteen years. That is why it was accompanied by large media attention.

The Crown Bar, Belfast was the starting point of Neeson’s connection with Star Wars. Neeson reported that he took the role in Star Wars due to the advice he received from his friend Peter King whom he met at the Crown during a Lyric reunion. The film received mixed reactions from fans and critics.

The Phantom Menace became a hit in the box office and it has maintained its reputation as the most successful Star Wars film. Neeson received a lot of positive reviews for his performance as Qui-Gon. Due to his role in Star Wars, he was nominated for the Saturn Award. Qui-Gon was expected to appear as a Force Ghost in Star Wars Episode HI: Revenge of the Sith (2005) and even Neeson had revealed that in an interview.

However, he did not appear due to an injury he got as a result of a motorcycle accident. That is why his character was only mentioned in the film. Later on, the animated television series was produced titled the Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This series ran from 2008 to 2014.

The role of Qui-Gon was once again repressed by Neeson by just voicing the character in two episodes in the third season and another episode in the sixth season. Neeson was the narrator in the 2001 documentaries, Journey, into Amazing Caves.

This was a story of two scientists who went around the world in search of ingredients to use in creating potential cures. He also narrated The Endurance: Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure.

Sandra Schmirler Biography

Born: June 11, 1963, in Biggar, Saskatchewan, Canada
Full name: Sandra Marie Schmirler (Peterson)
Nickname(s): Schmirler the Curler
Gender: Female
Height: 6-0 (184 cm)
Weight: 159 lbs (72 kg)
Birthplace: Biggar, Saskatchewan
Home Province: Saskatchewan
Residence: Regina
Sport: Curling
Games: Nagano 1998
Country: CAN Canada

Died: March 2, 2000 (Aged 36.265) in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
Affiliations: RCCC, Perth (GBR)

Sandra Schmirler and her curling rink (team) won the hearts of many Canadians and raised the profile of women’s curling at the national and international levels. She was the skip of the most dominant rink in women’s curling worldwide during the 1990s.  Sandra Marie Schmirler was born on June 11, 1963, in Bigger Saskatchewan and was the youngest of three daughters.

As a little girl, Sandra was actively involved in many sports but loved playing hockey the most. At the age of 12, Sandra began curling in Grade 7 as part of the school’s physical education program. During high school, she played as third on her school’s curling rink and won a provincial championship in Grade 12.

After graduating from high school, Sandra went on to study Physical Education at the University of Saskatchewan. She curled with a team that made their first appearance in Saskatchewan’s provincial playdowns in 1983.

Sandra moved to Regina after graduating to take a job at the North West Leisure Centre. She continued to curl and was nicknamed “Schmirler the curler” by a fellow employee at the center. In 1987, as a member of Kathy Falman’s rink, Sandra won her first provincial championship.

On this team, she met Jan Betker who became a close friend and life-long curling partner. In 1990, Kathy Falman’s team had a disappointing performance at the provincial championships and Sandra decided to form her own team. She recruited Jan Betker as third, Marcia Geidereit as lead and Joan McCusker as the second. These four women made an awesome curling team.

They won three Canadian Championships known as the Scott Tournament of Hearts in 1993, 1994, and 1997, and the World Curling Championships in the same years. This was a feat that no other women’s team had ever done.

No other women’s team made up of the same four members had ever won more than one world title. Sandra also became known as the Queen of Hearts due to her rink’s repeated victories at the Scott Tournament of Hearts.

In 1997, as well as winning Worlds, the Schmirler rink won at the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials, which earned them the right to represent Canada in curling at the first medal events at the Nagano Games in Japan.

The Schmirler rink was well respected in Canada and the world curling circles due to their great curling skills, but also for their humble, down-to-earth attitudes, and warm personalities.

At the Nagano Olympics, the Schmirler rink won gold and was vaulted into international fame and Sandra became known as the Queen of Curling. After all the media frenzy, accolades from the Premier and the Mayor, and celebrations were over, Sandra returned to a normal life with her husband and daughter.

During her second pregnancy, Sandra suffered from agonizing pain in her back which did not go away when her second daughter was born. She was diagnosed with a type of cancer that she fought courageously but lost the battle at the age of 36 on March 2, 2000.

Tributes to Sandra appeared in newspapers across the country from sportswriters and public figures. Buildings, parks, and streets now bear her name in Regina and Bigger, Saskatchewan.

A fund, called the Sandra Schmirler Foundation, was established by the Scott Paper Company to help babies in crisis at neonatal centers in hospitals across the country. Every time a Canadian thinks of curling watches it, or plays the game, Sandra Schmirler will be remembered.

For many years, only men competed in the biathlon at the Olympics. It was not until the 1990s when women began to compete and Myriam Bedard was one of them. Myriam Bedard was born on December 22, 1969, in Neufchatel, Quebec and was one of four children of Pierre and Francine Bedard. Myriam was a very athletic child who played basketball, did gymnastics, and trained as a figure skater. When she was 14 years old, Myriam joined the Canadian Army cadets with some friends, where she learned how to shoot a rifle.

During her cadet training, Bedard participated in a mixed relay team race at the cadet winter games. She was on a team with three men and played with borrowed equipment. Although her cross-country skiing skills were weak, her shooting skills were excellent, her team won the race and Myriam found a new sport.

In order to become a biathlete, Myriam had to improve her cross-country skiing skills. She also found out that being a biathlete is physically demanding and mentally challenging. As a biathlete, Myriam discovered she must study each course carefully and plan every part of the race ahead of time.

Winning biathlon is unpredictable, as the weather and the athlete’s mental and physical condition on the day of the race can affect the outcome. In a short time, Myriam began to do well at women’s biathlon competitions. In 1987, she won a first at the first Canadian Junior Biathlon Competition. During 1988, Myriam won the Canadian Junior title, two North American Championship races and a first and a second in Canada Cup tests.

At the Junior World Championships in 1989, she finished fourth in the sprints and also won a Canadian senior title that year. Being of very small stature and only weighing 115 pounds, Myriam trained hard to improve her upper body and her skiing skills, but finding money for her equipment and coaching was still a very big issue.

Finally, her agent negotiated a deal with Metropolitan Life, Myriam’s employer, which funded her training and equipment and a job when she retired from the sport. This deal allowed Myriam the freedom to buy her own custom rifle and enabled her to train with qualified coaches. During the 1993 season, at the World Biathlon Championships, she won the gold medal in the 7.5km race and silver in the 15km race.

Bedard was the first North American to accomplish this goal. During the same season, she placed second in the World Cup standings. Myriam continued to work hard to increase her aerobic skills and physical strength in order to get ready for the 1994 Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.

During the 1994 Olympics, Bedard’s training paid off and she achieved the goals that she had set for herself. She won gold medals in both the 15 km race and in the 7.5 km event. At the World Cup during the same year, Bedard won a silver medal in the 15 km event.

For her superior accomplishments, Bedard was named Canadian Female Athlete of the Year and awarded the Lou Marsh Trophy, which is Canada’s premier athletic award.  She also received the Velma Springstead Trophy for best Candian Female Athlete and was the first biathlete to become an honored member of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame.
