Liam Neeson doesn't do his own stunts

The actor, whose next film The Commuter is set for release in India on January 19, says he prefers to leave the stunts to the experts

Published: 06th January 2018

Liam Neeson says he loves shooting fighting sequences, but prefers to leave stunts for the experts. The actor is known for his action-packed films. His upcoming film The Commuter is also on the same lines. 

Stunt performer Mark Vanselow works with Neeson for the stunts. He has worked with the actor 16 times. 

Talking about shooting for The Commuter, Neeson says, "I'd rehearse and rehearse with Mark and the stunt guys -- you have to, otherwise you get hurt. It demands a certain level of fitness so I was in the gym for 45 minutes every morning before going on set, but that's part of the fun."

Vanselow, meanwhile, says, "Having worked together so often before, is a bit of a blessing and a curse. Every time we get together all we want to do is create something new... That's fun and challenging. We had some really exciting challenges from the director, Jaume Collet-Serra, as to how to make the stunts interesting on a train."

The Commuter, also starring Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson and Sam Neill, revolves around a man's quest to prevent disaster on a packed commuter train. The film will be released in India on January 19.
