Liam Pádraic Aiken (born January 7, 1990) is an American actor. He has starred in films such as Stepmom (1998) and Good Boy! (2003), and played Klaus Baudelaire in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004), based on the series of books.


Liam est né à New York aux États-Unis, il est le fils unique de Moya Aiken et de Bill Aiken. Son père est mort du cancer en octobre 1992 à l'âge de 34ans, Liam n'avait que deux ans. Il est diplôme de la Dwight-Englewood School en 2008.

Il commence sa carrière cinématographique en 1997, et obtient en 1998 un Young Artist Award pour sa prestation dans Ma meilleure ennemie (Chris Columbus). En 1998, il rate de peu le rôle de Cole dans Sixième Sens, qui revient finalement à Haley Joel Osment. De même, en 2000, il fait partie des quatre derniers prétendants pour le rôle de Harry Potter, mais échoue face à Daniel Radcliffe, en particulier du fait que J.K. Rowling souhaitait qu'un acteur britannique interprète le jeune sorcier à l'écran. La suite lui est plus favorable : en 2002, il interprète le second fils de Tom Hanks dans Les Sentiers de la perdition (Sam Mendes), et en 2004, il décroche le rôle de Klaus Baudelaire dans l'adaptation cinématographique de Les Désastreuses Aventures des orphelins Baudelaire (Brad Silberling), qui connaît un succès critique et public international.

En 2006, il joue Ned Grim dans Fay Grim. En 2010, il obtient l'un des rôles principaux dans The Killer Inside Me, celui de Jonnie Pappas. En 2013, il joue le rôle de Mr. Will dans Electrik Children de Rebecca Thomas , et la même année il tient le second rôle principal, celui de Bryan, dans le film How To Be A Man de Chadd Harbold.

The plot concerns 15-year-old Rachel McKnight, a member of a fundamentalist Mormon community in Utah, who, listening to a cassette recorder for the first time, hears a song by an obscure rock band on a blue cassette. Her brother, Mr. Will, takes it from her, stating that it is to be used only for God's purposes. When she finds herself to be pregnant, she is convinced that she has conceived miraculously, like the Virgin Mary, through the medium of the cassette. After being questioned by her parents, her brother is blamed for impregnating her, and is asked to leave the community, while Rachel is told she will be married the next day. Rather than undergo a shotgun marriage arranged by her father Paul, she escapes to Las Vegas, along with Mr. Will, who is sleeping in the bed of the family's pickup truck. In Las Vegas she falls in with a group of skaters who live together and play in a band, after being drawn to one of the boys who wears a shirt with a cassette on it. She becomes romantically involved with Clyde, one of the skaters. One night he offers to marry her, and says that together they can look for the man on the tape, and that she can leave him when they find him. When a trip to Clyde's parents' house goes awry, Mr. Will is arrested, and Rachel flees. Remembering one of her mother's bedtime stories, she impulsively follows a red Mustang and discovers the man who recorded the tape, who is, in fact, her biological father. Finally, she decides to return to her community. Mr. Will is bailed out of jail by Rachel's father, who is looking for her. Together, he and Mr. Will drive out to the community, though they admit they have not formed a plan about what to do when they arrive. They discover Clyde, whose van has broken down on the highway, and proceed to the community. As she is about to be wed, her biological father, Mr. Will, and Clyde pull up in front of the church in the red Mustang and rescue her. Mr. Will returns to the community, with a recording that Rachel has made on the blue cassette. After playing the recording for his mother, she hugs him and leaves the room. Rachel's voice-over states that she firmly believes that God has fathered her child. Clyde and Rachel are living in a tent by the beach and hold hands as they walk through the waves. As the song on the blue cassette plays, the ocean laps the shore.
