London: Actor Liam Neeson is planning to give up his Catholic belief and convert to Islam.

The 59-year-old actor admits an Islamic prayer "got into my spirit" while filming in Turkish city Istanbul, reports thesun.co.uk.

"The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it`s the most beautiful, beautiful thing," said Neeson.

"There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim," he added.

Neeson was raised in Northern Ireland as a devout Catholic, and was named after the local priest.
