Sam Neill is being treated for blood cancer

Sam Neill says he started treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma last March.

In the opening chapter – written while undergoing cell therapy – Neill writes: “The thing is, I’m sick. Possibly dying. I might need to speed this up.”

In an interview with The Guardian he says he will continue with cell treatments for the rest of his life.

“I can’t pretend that the past year hasn’t had its dark moments,” he tells the newspaper while stressing that it has made him extremely grateful for life.

— I’m just happy to be alive.

He is currently preparing for a role in a film adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s novel The Apple Doesn’t Fall, which is being shot in Australia.

Sam Neill is internationally best known for the Oscar-winning “Piano” and “Jurassic Park” films. A Swedish audience also knows him from the New Year’s classic “Ivanhoe” from 1982.
