Liam Neeson: Taken fans too scared to travel

Liam Neeson has revealed he’s received letters from ‘Taken’ fans too scared to travel because of the action franchise’s storylines.
'Non-Stop' premiere in LA

The 62-year-old actor stars as retired CIA agent Bryan Mills in the action franchise and admits fans have written to him saying they’re frightened of travelling abroad due to the storylines in which his wife and daughter are kidnapped.

He said: “Just the other day I got a letter from a school teacher in Texas who had tried to take 60 students to Europe and the families of 40 of them got the kids out of it because they had seen ‘Taken 2’.

“And then this year she wanted to take 20 of them and the parents all said, ‘No, because we’ve seen that movie!’ ”

The ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’ star also confessed he was reluctant to return for the upcoming third instalment until the premise was altered slightly from the first two films.

“I said the second one wouldn’t happen and I said I wouldn’t do a third one if someone got taken.

“It’s insulting to an audience as well as me. It’s a good storyline and I’m the hunted instead of the hunter.”

However, Neeson is disappointed so much of the film has been given away in the previews.

He added: “I hate trailers, they give everything away. There’s no mystery anymore.”
