Liam Neeson believes his most iconic movie line is actually a bit corny.
Over the last 15 years or so, the Irish actor has carved out an unlikely career resurgence as an action movie star.
The movie that started that trend, Taken, was a huge hit and spawned two sequels. On a budget of $25 million, it made $226m worldwide - a massive hit.
It sees Neeson play the part of Bryan Mills, an ex-CIA officer who springs into action to free his kidnapped daughter and exact revenge on those responsible. In the movie's most famous scene, Mills is on the phone to one of his kidnappers and says:
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills.
"I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you."
Neeson hears the monologue everywhere he goes and it has been parodied on numerous occasions. But, he says he tried to get director Pierre Morell to scrap the line.
“Well, if I had a penny for every time somebody mentioned 'a certain set of skills.'" he told Rolling Stone.
"I’m always like, 'Oh f**k, here we go again.'
"I remember when we were shooting that scene, I begged Pierre Morel, 'Please, can we cut this back? This is so corny'."
