Liam Neeson On His role in The Ice Road
While sharing more details about his character and the film’s production, Liam Neeson told UPROXX, “I know nothing about [truck drivers]. I have seen them on the road and… The Kenworth Trucking – I think they’re made in Ohio. They supplied these trucks, which were – I mean, they are the star of the movie, I think. They couldn’t have done enough to help us. I was in awe of the size of [the trucks] and I was also in awe of the sensitivity of them, the gear changing, and the brake pressure, and how gently you have to apply that brake.”
Liam Neeson explains that during the production, he goes out with a professional truck driver to the streets of Winnipeg. They allow him to drive around the parking lot. “But they’re special, special machines,” he says. “I’ve been describing them as, when you’re inside, they’re like small New York apartments. We had a crew of, when myself and Marcus Thomas [Neeson’s character’s brother] were sitting in the driving seat, he’s in the passenger seat, and we had a credit in the back of six guys with a camera and sound equipment and stuff shooting over our shoulders at the panorama of the ice and snow and stuff. I enjoyed those scenes a lot. It all happened inside the truck.”
In regards to his favorite scenes, Neeson adds, “[My agent] started sending me more action-oriented scripts, which I was thrilled about it because I love doing my own fights and stuff in these movies. Not my on stunts. I don’t do the stunt, but the fighting I do. I likening that. And I work very closely with Mark Vanselo, who is my stunt double’s fight choreographer. [He is now] working with Jordan Peele on his third movie. Mark and I have done 25 films together now.”
