Skuespilleren Liam Neeson sier han vurderer å konvertere til islam etter å ha vært i Istanbul på filming.

Neeson ble født og oppvokst som katolikk i Nord-Irland.

Han sier han lenge har vært på sjelelig søken. Det er en spirituelle siden ved islam som appellerer til ham. Ritualene, bønneropene.

‘The call to prayer happens five times a day, and for the first week, it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit, and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing,’ he said.

‘There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.’

The actor was criticised in 2010 after claiming The Chronicles Of Narnia lion, Aslan, who he provided the voice for in the film, was not based on Christ as CS Lewis had claimed but in fact all spiritual leaders including Mohammed.
