Well, this should help The Grey sell tickets in flyover country.
While filming in Istanbul, Liam Neeson found he had an affinity to the religion of Islam. After feeling uncomforted by Christianity following the tragic death of his wife, Natasha Richardson, The Grey star found solace in the Call to Prayer custom.
The actor, 59, admitted Islamic prayer “got into his spirit” while filming in Turkish city Istanbul.
He said: “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.”
Some might be outraged by this admission, but its his personal choice. We aren’t in any position to judge a man seeking solace. Plus, it will probably mean he grows a ridiculous beard just like he does in his movies. I’m in full support.
Also, this info comes from The Sun, so chances are Neeson has never even been to Turkey.
