Sam Neill said in an interview with The Guardian that he recently had chemotherapy for a type of blood cancer. In his upcoming memoir “Did I Ever Tell You This?” which will be available next week, he discusses the diagnosis.
The most well-known thing about Neill is his portrayal of Alan Grant in the “Jurassic Park” movies.
He first noticed swollen glands while conducting promotion work for “Jurassic World: Dominion” last year. The Guardian claims that he was identified as having stage three angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.
Neill received chemotherapy as part of his initial treatment, but when that began to fail, he started taking a new chemotherapy medication, which he will continue to take every month for the remainder of his life. The Guardian quotes Neill as saying he is cancer-free at the moment.

He admitted in the interview for the new book, “I can’t pretend that the last year hasn’t had its terrible times. But, those bad times bring the light into clear focus and have taught me to be grateful for each day and all of my friends. Simply grateful to be alive.
With his performance in “Jurassic Park,” which he repeated in “Jurassic Park III” and the most recent “Jurassic World: Dominion,” Neill gained notoriety. Peaky Blinders, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, The Piano, and The Hunt for Red October are just a few of the numerous films he has worked on.
