Clive Standen – who plays the younger version of Liam Neeson’s character – said Bryan is “just a normal human being” when the show begins.
“What’s so great about the Taken series so far is… he doesn’t have a super-power,” Standen told Digital Spy. “He’s not Jason Bourne. He’s not James Bond, he’s not the cool guy with the witty one-liners.
“Something really traumatic and tragic happens within Bryan’s family and he goes on a one-man mission, just like he does in the film, to put right what went wrong.
“He’s a one-man wrecking ball. So he doesn’t have any particular skills [yet] – he just has a desire to protect.
“He’s on a path to destruction and the CIA find him and they’re the ones who are able to grab him – before he does real damage to himself – and harness him and that is when he starts to learn that particular set of skills.”Read More
