The action film stalwart Liam Neeson says he plans to stop performing in action roles in the near future.

“Maybe two more years. If God spares me and I’m healthy,” he said in an interview with The Guardian.

Neeson, who broke out with his role in the 1993 Steven Spielberg film Schindler’s List, has more recently performed in a spate of action or thriller films such as the hit 2008 film Taken, The Grey (2011), and most recently Run All Night, which comes out on Friday.

“I get sent quite a few action-oriented scripts, which is great,” Neeson, 62, told The Guardian. “I’m not knocking it. It’s very flattering. But there is a limit, of course.”
