 HOLLYWOOD star Liam Neeson is considering giving up his Roman Catholic beliefs and becoming a Muslim.
The actor, 59, admitted that Islamic prayer "got into his spirit" while filming in Istanbul, the Herald Sun reported.
"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 told The Sun.
“There are 4000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim."
Neeson was raised in Northern Ireland as a devout Roman Catholic and was named after the local priest.
But the star - whose wife, Natasha Richardson, died aged 45 in a skiing accident in 2009 - has spoken about challenges to his faith.
"I was reared a Catholic, but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What's it all about? I'm constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism," he said.
His latest movie, The Grey, about an oil-drilling team that crashes in freezing Alaska, is set to be released on February 16.

Neeson mahu peluk Islam

LAS VEGAS: Bintang Hollywood, Liam Neeson, bercadang meninggalkan kepercayaan Katoliknya untuk memeluk Islam.
Laporan media semalam menyatakan, Neeson, 59, mengaku dia “diresapi semangat” itu selepas mendengar laungan azan ketika menjalani penggambaran filem di Istanbul, Turki.
Kata Neeson, azan dilaungkan lima kali sehari dan untuk minggu pertama, dia “gila” mendengarnya.
“Tiba-tiba seruan itu meresapi jiwa dan ia menjadi sesuatu yang paling indah,” katanya.
Neeson berkata, ada kira-kira 4,000 masjid di Istanbul dan sesetengahnya begitu indah.
“Ia menyebabkan saya benar-benar berfikir untuk menganut Islam,” katanya.
Neeson dibesarkan di Ireland Utara sebagai penganut Katolik yang taat.
Bagaimanapun, dia beberapa kali mempertikaikan keyakinannya.
“Saya diajar mengenai Katolik, tetapi saya tertanya-tanya setiap hari secara tidak sedar - apa yang kita lakukan di dunia ini sebenarnya? “Saya sentiasa membaca buku mengenai Tuhan dan fahaman atheis,” katanya. - TS
