Sam Neill shares surprising revelation about his life

Actor Sam Neill has revealed that he is being treated for stage-three non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a blood disease that he was diagnosed with a year ago. The New Zealander, who became famous for his role in the 1993 blockbuster “Jurassic Park,” began treatment last March and has been undergoing chemotherapy since then. Neill’s upcoming book “Did I Ever Tell You This?” includes a first chapter in which he writes in his diary that he was “possibly dying” and may have to speed up writing the book.

Despite his illness, the 75-year-old actor has vowed to continue working and undergoing chemotherapy for the rest of his life. Neill’s impressive acting career spans back to the 1970s and includes roles in popular movies such as “The Hunt for Red October,” “The Piano,” and TV shows like “Peaky Blinders.”

In a statement to the media, Neill admitted that the past year has had its dark moments, but he remains grateful for every day and all his friends. He said, “Those dark moments throw the light into sharp relief, you know, and have made me immensely grateful for all my friends. Just pleased to be alive.”

Neill is currently preparing for a role in a TV adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s bestselling novel “Apples Never Fall,” which will be filmed in Australia.
