Liam Neeson - Liam Neeson Shaken By Taken 2 Car Chase Scenes

Subscribe to Liam Neeson alerts

Liam Neeson was left terrified as he raced through Istanbul with stunt drivers at breakneck speeds while shooting fast-paced scenes in his TAKEN sequel - because the backstreets were full of shoppers.

The Irish actor was reminded of why he hates rollercoasters so much as he risked life and limb for the movie.

He says, "We had a police presence but the shopkeepers and merchants in these tiny narrow streets wanted to keep their shops open. They had no problem with us shooting our film.

"There were customers crossing streets all the time who weren't extras, and we're barreling up these streets in Mercedes Benzs at reckless speeds.

"I hate rollercoaster rides. I get sick on them. That's what this was like. There were these amazing stunt drivers sitting on the roof of the car, driving, doing all the work - but it's terrifying."
