Apparently if you offer Liam Neeson a free sandwich, he will look for you, he will find you and he will show up outside your deli and pose for a photo with you.

A Canadian deli lured the County Down actor to their shop after they discovered he was filming his latest movie, Hard Powder, in their city.

Staff at Big Star Sandwich in New Westminster posted a sign outside their deli that read: "Liam Neeson eats here for free" to entice him.

The news got back to Neeson who decided to pay the cafe a visit.

According to Big Star Sandwich spokesman, Alex Johrden, Neeson asked "Where's my sandwich?" in the voice of his Taken character, Bryan Mils.

Johrden told CBC that while the actor didn't take them up on their offer, he was happy to pose for photos with their sign.

The team even designed a sandwich in his honour, calling it The Neeson.

Johrden said The Neeson was the perfect name for the sandwich because it has "a lot of beef, a one-two punch of bacon and hickory sticks and spice that will get revenge on you tomorrow."
