(DailyDig.com) – Sam Neill, 75, who played Dr. Alan Grant in the “Jurassic Park” films, was recently in the news with the revelation that he had stage three cancer of the blood.
Last summer, when he was in Los Angeles to promote “Jurassic World Dominion,” the third installment in the blockbuster six-movie trilogy in which he portrays a dinosaur investigator doctor, his inflamed lymph glands forced him to see a doctor.
Wearing jeans and a tee-shirt, Neill posted a long video to Instagram in which he complained that it was becoming old to read about his health problems in the media, especially since he was very well and still alive.
The reports about his health appear to be everywhere right now, and they just talk about his cancer all the time. The celebrity, who was born in New Zealand, divulged some information.
Addressing his condition on the March 21 episode of “Lorraine,” he provided specifics. Neill said he was diagnosed with cancer around a year ago, but that his condition was in remission during the past eight months.
Neill said that he made the decision to write his latest book, titled “Did I Ever Tell You This,” while enduring chemotherapy. He was facing treatment and decided to use his time productively by writing. After mulling it over for a while, he realized it might make a good book.
The actor said that he hoped that reflecting on past experiences and accomplishments while writing the book would help lift his spirits.
Neill is going to be OK since he is beginning a new job during that next week. He was overjoyed to be returning to acting, his true calling.
He is ecstatic and can’t wait to go back to work. In seven days, they will begin shooting. The producers have assembled a stellar ensemble for his new movie, “Apples Never Fall,” in which he will star with Annette Bening. “So here I am,” he said finally.
