Liam Neeson visits Canadian sandwich shop offering him free food

By Claire Williamson

It seems that even Ballymena born Hollywood star Liam Neeson can't refuse the offer of a free lunch.

The Taken star was recently filming in Vancouver when a sandwich shop tried to attract his attention.

The shop put up a sign saying "Liam Neeson eats here for free" and the other side said "Come in and get Taken away by our sandwiches" - in the hope that he would see it and pop in.

And he did just that. According to TMZ the actor asked the staff at the aptly named Big Star Sandwich Company: "Where is my free sandwich?" but was too busy to stop and eat it.

The shop naturally took to social media to tell of their success as they posted: "Holy f*** it worked!".

Alex Johrden, director of operations for Big Star Sandwich, told the Huffington Post: “We absolutely did not think he’d actually show up.”

Liam is in town shooting his new film Hard Powder.

It's based on the 2014 Norwegian film called In Order of Disappearance about a snowplow driver who seeks revenge against the drug dealers he thinks killed his son.
