A-List Hollywood Actor Considers Converting To Islam, Even In Light Of Recent Attacks
The film “Taken 2” was filmed in Islamic Turkey, however that setting seemed to draw one Catholic A-list actor closer to Islam and not further away.
His name is Liam Neeson, and this man who was named after his local priest in Northern Ireland is admitting that he has considered converting to Islam.
Here’s what he had to say about his time in Istanbul:
“The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing…There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.”
From the New York Daily News:
Liam Neeson may have found a new faith during his time filming in Istanbul.
The Irish actor admitted to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper that he is considering giving up his Catholic beliefs in order to become a Muslim.
Neeson, 59, went on to explain that Islamic prayer “got into his spirit” when he spent time in the Turkish city working on the action-thriller “Taken 2.”
“The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing,” he told the newspaper.
