Looks can be deceiving in the case of Liam Neeson. The “Taken” star was recently spotted out looking barely recognizable due to the sudden changes that have occurred in the 63-year-old’s appearance according to a Monday, July 27 report from Radar Online.
Liam Neeson was described by concerned fans as being rail thin, gaunt and pale in comparison to weeks prior. Fans have been wondering if Liam is getting into character for a new film role, or if he has become very ill. Neeson looks gaunt and unrecognizable but insists he’s ‘never been healthier.’ The actor’s hair is long and scraggly and very gray in appearance.
The actor wore a baseball cap and sunglasses, strolling around SoHo in a loose pink tee and gray jacket that looked to be swallowing his deteriorating frame from sight. At this time, it is not known whether Liam as stated before is prepping for a new film role, or hiding some secret medical issues. The grim appearance comes just after Neeson revealed his plans for retirement.

“Maybe two more years – if God spares me, and I’m healthy,” stated Liam. “But after that, I’ll stop [the action], I think, ” adds the actor.
Neeson was married to late wife actress Natasha Richardson. They married on 3 July 1994. Sadly on March 18, 2009, Richardson died when she suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident at the Mont Tremblant Resort, north of Montreal. She and Neeson had two sons together, Micheál Richard Antonio and Daniel Jack. As previously reported in March, Michael Neeson, the teenage son of actor Liam Neeson and the late Natasha Richardson spoke out for the first-time-ever revealing that following his mother Richardson’s death in 2009 he descended into a “dark” and dangerous world of drugs and alcohol.
Michael was only 13-year-old at the time of his mother’s sudden and shocking death after a ski accident in Canada, and reveals that he suffered a loss he did not know how to cope with at the time. Michael revealed that soon after his mother’s death he began to frequent the New York party scene. It was then he also began his descent into the dark and dangerous world of drugs and alcohol, claiming last spring things were spiraling completely out of control. Michael credits his family, (grandma Vanessa Redgrave), friends and a trip to Utah in wilderness therapy to his survival and sobriety.
It has been a tough time for Liam Neeson and family over the past several years. Hopefully, he is prepping for a new film and is not ill these days. Fans continue to wish Neeson the best.
