THE HAUNTING

LIAM NEESON (David Marrow) stars as Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in George Lucas' blockbuster "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace." He was previously honored with Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for his portrayal of Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg's acclaimed drama "Schindler's List." He earned another Golden Globe nod, was named Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival and won Britain's Evening Standard Award for the title role in Neil Jordan's "Michael Collins."

A native of Ireland, Neeson began acting in 1976 with the Lyric Players Theater in Belfast, and made his professional debut in Joseph Plunkett's "The Risen People." After two years, he joined the famed repertory company of Dublin's Abbey Theatre, and appeared in their production of Brian Friel's "Translations." He also won a Best Actor Award for his performance in Sean O'Casey's "The Plough and the Stars" at the Royal Exchange Theatre.

In 1980, director John Boorman spotted him playing Lenny in "Of Mice and Men" and cast him in the big-screen epic "Excalibur." Neeson went on to appear in such films as "The Bounty," "Lamb," "The Mission," "Duet for One," "A Prayer for the Dying," "Suspect," "The Good Mother," "Crossing the Line," and "Darkman," in the title role. His more recent credits include starring roles in 'Shining Through," "Under Suspicion," Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives," "Leap of Faith," 'Nell," "Rob Roy" and "Les Miserables."

Returning to the stage, Neeson made his Broadway debut in the 1993 revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Anna Christie," for which he garnered a Tony Award nomination. Last year, he played Oscar Wilde in David Hare's "The Judas Kiss," which opened in London's West End, and went to Broadway.
