Liam Neeson considering converting to Islam following trip to Istanbul

January 26, 2012 - London

Liam Neeson says he is thinking about trading in his Catholic beliefs for Islam.

According to The Sun, the 59-year-old actor admitted that Islamic prayer "got into his spirit" while he was filming in Turkey.

"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," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning, and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim," he added.

The 'Love Actually' star was raised in Northern Ireland as a devout Roman Catholic due to his parents' beliefs.
