EXCLUSIVE: Maggie Grace Talks ‘Taken 2’

I recently had the chance to speak with actress Maggie Grace, who was promoting the sci-fi action thriller Lockout, arriving in theaters April 13. She reprises her role as Kim in Taken 2, the follow-up to 2009's surprise action hit Taken. This time around, instead of Kim being kidnapped, her father Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) is taken hostage with his wife, while on vacation in Istanbul. I asked the actress if this role reversal meant she would have to take action to save her father. Take a look at what she had to say.


Taken 2 was released October 5th, 2012.

    Well it's safe to say there won't be a Taken 3, because the only thing she's saving is money on her car insurance by switching to Geico!

            50 million dollars, who do you think he is? Chelsey Clinton. HA HA

            I couldn't resist the urge.

            I would rather see him rescued by an old friend than his daughter

                I didn't see the first film, but the idea of a family that can't stop finding themselves in hostage situations cracks me up LOL The third film should be called Taken: The Final Straw, where Liam Neeson's wife divorces him and takes everything he owns LOL

                  Loved the 1st - looking forward to the 2nd! Liam Neeson is a 1st-rate badass.

                    I actually run an entertainment news site myself and I'm happy to inform you that 20th Century Fox sent over a very long synopsis for Taken 2. It sounds far more promising than the basic premise a lot of you guys have seen. While Liam's character and his wife do get captured and the daughter as to save them, that only occurs during a small portion of the film. Once Liam's character is rescued, it's back to 'badass' mode.

                        @moviemaniac66 I agree, because Neeson is bad ass.

                            To be honest I really couldn't care less or give a damn about Taken 2, as a sequel is not needed

                                This family gets kidnapped way too often.

                                  No one wants to see Neeson kidnapped.

                                    the whole concept makes no sense. In the last movie she was a scared little girl and Liam was this badas* who was able to take down groups of guys and kill people with ease. How the hell could he get kidnapped especially with those "set of skills" it just makes no sense.

                                      So, Liam Neeson was kidnapped? In other news, the sky is green and Taylor Lautner can act.

                                          Can one simply kidnap a jedi and live to tell the tale?
