Liam Neeson has revealed he once walked the streets with a cosh for days looking to kill a “black bastard” after someone close to him was raped many years….
“She handled the situation of the rape in the most extraordinary way,” Neeson said during the interview, “But my immediate reaction was … did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.
I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody. I’m ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week – hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black bastard’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”
British actors, eh?
Tweeted this separately but adding it to this thread: You should absolutely read @kubared‘s take. “I’m glad that Neeson was so forthcoming about this story that he ‘never admitted’ to anyone else. It has shed light on a phenomenon that too few understand.”https://t.co/JszxIODPlw
