“I remember buying the cassette, as it was then, in 1979 in Ireland, and I loved the music. I liked the voice of Richard Burton in particular, and was very flattered that Jeff wanted me to do this, “he told a press conference in London.

He tried to banish the voice of Burton’s mind when he did the narration. “I had to get rid of it and just focus on the text. It would have been a suicide, just keep thinking of Richard. ”

As for technology, “I’m not a computer nerd at all so I did not know this trick technology, but it does sound very interesting. We shot for three days in April.

“It was made of” green screen “I’m very used after Star Wars, and Clash of the Titans and other movies like that. It was not too different from a film.”

The actor said he did not believe in aliens.

Wayne said that Liam Neeson was his first choice for the role. He explained: “I had a list of names of my great George Herbert, and it was him.

“For me it is a living work and now we have decided to move on to what we call the” new generation “.

“The performance of Richard was 74 sequences, Liam is 90. Before, we had a holographic head hanging over the stage as Liam is, but also a full-bodied performance with the other characters live and appear on a giant wall of the animation.

“That gave us wonderful opportunities to open storylines.”

Neeson recalled his only encounter with Burton, when the two were filming a miniseries in 1984 called Ellis Island.

He said: “I remember coming out of the trailer up one morning and he was standing, listening to the lady who spoke of him with his arms behind his back and it looked incredibly good. I remember thinking “Wow, that Richard Burton.”

“He had such a halo around him. I do not want to go, I would have. And two weeks after he died.”
