Northern Ireland actor Liam Neeson has been spotted in Belfast, while back home to film a new romantic comedy.

The Ballymena-born star paid a visit to the Forestside retail complex on Monday.

Some fans were delighted to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood favourite, sharing pictures on social media.

Neeson is taking something of a departure from a recent string of action films, including the likes of The A-Team, the Taken trilogy, and The Commuter.

He is set to star alongside Lesley Manville in Normal People, which is set in Northern Ireland and based on a script from Belfast playwright Owen McCafferty.
