If you’re as remarkable and famous as Liam Neeson, you’d probably expect to be mauled with love and appreciation every time you stepped out the house. However, you’d probably shit yourself if you got a tap on the shoulder from an animal who appeared to recognise you.
Well ladies and gents, that’s exactly what happened to ol’ Han Solo himself. On the set of the new Cohen Brother’s movie “The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs”, Neeson plays a traveling impresario and was pretty damn shocked to realise that his horse recognised him.
“We filmed in New Mexico. The odd thing is the horse who pulls my wagon knew me. You won’t believe it. I’m saying this horse knew me. He actually remembered me from another Western we made a while back.”
“I love animals. When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.”
How do ya reckon Neeson realised that the horse recognised him? Well, apparently he “whinnied when he saw me. And pawed the ground.”
If that doesn’t sound like true love then I don’t know what will. The movie isn’t set to come out for another month so you’ll have to wait patiently to see this budding friendship on screen.
