Former Star Wars actor Liam Neeson claimed that when filming his first action scene with Ewan McGregor in The Phantom Menace, he truly made lightsaber noises. The actor who portrayed Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn opposite Ewan McGregor‘s Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast, Liam Neeson, revealed how director George Lucas instructed them to stop since the improvised sound effects weren’t essential. Neeson explained:

“The first time, we actually had to use the lightsaber to start a little fight. We both automatically [made the noises],”. “George said, ‘Let’s cut there. Boys, we can add that in later.”

The actor claimed that while he and Ewan McGregor, who was playing Obi-Wan, were filming a scene, they both pulled out their lightsabers and made the distinctive “vroom, vroom” noises associated with the weapon. This was a humorous encounter for the actors as it made them laugh and eventually, the director stopped them as he thought of using those sounds post-production. Neeson also touched on his experience in Star Wars and what he thinks of it now.

The first trailer for In the Land of Saints and Sinners is perfect if you’re seeking a Liam Neeson thriller with an Irish spin. Robert Lorenz, who also worked with Neeson on The Marksman, is in charge of directing this film, which takes us to Ireland in the 1970s. The protagonist of the narrative is Finbar Murphy (played by Neeson), a newly retired assassin who is trying to escape his sinister background. A list of notable performers, including Kerry Condon, Jack Gleeson, Colm Meaney, and Ciaran Hinds, join Neeson on this Irish journey.

It’s appealing to see Gleeson’s transition from his notorious role as Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones to this new cinematic chapter, especially with such a wonderful roster of Irish talent. As Liam Neeson, known for his iconic performance in Star Wars, teams up with a fantastic ensemble cast, the anticipation for this upcoming movie after watching the Trailer is great. This cooperation offers a fascinating cinematic experience that fans and film buffs alike anxiously anticipate thanks to his vast portfolio.
