Northern Ireland film star Liam Neeson has urged the UK to vote Remain in tomorrow's historic EU referendum vote.
Polling opens at 7am on Thursday.
In a statement released to AFP, Ballymena man Neeson said a 'Brexit' would have the "worst ramifications for the island of Ireland" and would reverse the progress made since the Troubles.
He said: "Border controls would be implemented to allegedly stop illegal immigrants coming into the UK through the back door. Trade will be enormously impacted.
"It would be truly a shame to sacrifice all the progress that has been made by the peace process regarding border controls."
The 64-year-old declared his support for the "Irish4Europe" campaign to encourage Irish people living in Britain to vote in favour of EU membership.
"There is strength in unity. A Brexit vote will make us weak," Neeson wrote. "I urge you to go out and vote to remain in the EU."
