Sam Neill Being Treated For Blood Cancer

Universal Pictures

New Zealand acting legend Sam Neill has revealed in an interview with The Guardian that he is being treated for stage 3 blood cancer.

The “Jurassic Park” alum experienced swollen glands during publicity for “Jurassic World Dominion” in March last year and was soon diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.

Neill received chemotherapy, which originally failed, he then took a new chemotherapy drug which he will continue to receive monthly for the rest of his life – although he is now cancer-free.

After saying he’s “grateful for every day and immensely grateful for all my friends” and “just pleased to be alive” he gave a very Sam Neill-esque statement to the paper:

“I’m not afraid to die, but it would annoy me. Because I’d really like another decade or two, you know? We’ve built all these lovely terraces, we’ve got these olive trees and cypresses, and I want to be around to see it all mature. And I’ve got my lovely little grandchildren. I want to see them get big. But as for the dying? I couldn’t care less.”

Reently Neill was cast alongside Annette Bening in the “Apples Never Fall” limited series at Peacock based on the book by Liane Moriarty (“Big Little Lies”). The two play parents and former tennis coachers who sell their famed sports academy and prepare for retirement, only for Bening’s matriarch to disappear.
