In his memoir, Sam Neill, who became an international star after starring as Dr. Alan Grant in the 1993 film “Jurassic Park,” revealed that he was fighting cancer.
He said that he was diagnosed with stage three blood cancer a year ago.
In his memoir, which is scheduled to be released next week, Neill talks about his cancer diagnosis and how he was going through chemotherapy.
He noted that he was in remission at the time of his interview with The Guardian. However, he still undergoes treatment for the disease for the rest of his life.
Neill admitted that he had a hard time during his cancer battle. However, he said that the negative moments turned into a blessing, and he is thankful for his friends and family.
Although he never intended to write a book, Neill eventually realized that it was a great opportunity to share his experiences and thoughts about his illness.
He said that he was able to keep going through the difficult times because he was determined to write about his experiences.
Neill’s career in the film and television industry started in the 1970s. He has featured roles in numerous films and TV shows, such as “Peaky Blinders,” “The Hunt for Red October,” and “The Piano.”
Currently, Neill is working on a role in the upcoming TV adaptation of “Liane Moriarty’s” novel, “Apples Never Fall.”
The show will be filmed in Australia, and he also runs a wine business in New Zealand’s South island.
