Neeson can tap into legacy of his home town's great orator

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 22/04/2015

Could another big man from Ballymena be about to make his mark in politics? There is intense speculation that actor Liam Neeson may soon vie for a political position in the US.

And he need look no further than his home town for inspiration, having often spoken of the impact that the late Ian Paisley made in Northern Ireland's political life.

If he makes the move into politics he will be following in the footsteps of other actors such as Ronald Reagan, Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Certainly he would be more articulate while still having the same commanding presence. Just like Ian.
