He continued to appear in British films and TV shows throughout the early 80s. He later moved to Hollywood for parts in films such as "Suspect," in which he starred opposite Cher, and Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives." In 1993 he played Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg's "Schindler's List," for which he received an Oscar nomination.

Liam Neeson continued to play real-life historical figures in films such as "Rob Roy," "Michael Collins" and "Kinsey." In 1999 he starred as Jedi mentor Qui-Gon Jinn in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace," which was the highest-grossing film of that year and Neeson's highest-grossing movie as of 2015. Later roles in big-budget action movies such as "Taken," "Clash of the Titans," "Unknown," "The Grey" and "Non-Stop" solidified his status as an action star.
