Maggie Grace Takes On a Thriller
Posted 01.30.09 by reelz
In Taken, Maggie Grace plays the 17-year-old Kim, who sets out to follow U2's European Tour with a friend and ends up kidnapped and forced into the slave trade -- prompting her former-spy father (Liam Neeson) into action.
Working with Neeson was a nice bit of synchronicity. "In December, right before I read the script, I started watching a lot of movies at Christmas," Grace said. "I always have a little time off to do that. [And I thought,] 'I should make a list of people I wanna work with some day, people I really admire.' And on my actor list, Liam Neeson was, like, top. And right after that I read the script. So, I thought that was a funny coincidence. I think he's wonderful."
