Lets all face some basic facts about life, we all have made plans that did not turn out at all we had planned, right?
Well if you said yes, you are among millions, so don’t feel so alone!
Consider the fact that Liam Neeson was fired from teaching before he ended up joining the Belfast Lyric Players’ Theatre in 1976.
A Hollywood star who trained as a teacher on Tyneside has revealed how he ended up punching a young adult in class.
Liam Neeson, who has starred in Schindler’s List, Star Wars, Batman Begins and Taken, is believed to have attended the now-closed St Mary’s College, in Fenham, Newcastle, to train as a teacher. The star said his ‘worst day’ as a teacher came when a pupil threatened him with a knife.
“I had to punch him and then I was reprimanded for hitting the kid.”
And he left the profession shortly after he punched the 15-year-old, he said. Liam Neeson, who hails from Ballymena, in Northern Ireland, said “He was a big guy too, about 15 years of age. Although Neeson would not reveal the school where the incident happened, he suggested it took place during his teacher training.
The 62-year-old is also reported to have worked as a forklift operator for Guinness, truck driver, assistant architect and an amateur boxer before stardom beckoned.
So why am talking about this?
