“The truth is I’m sick. Maybe I’m dying. I’ll have to speed up”, From the first chapter of his memoirs, he writes of actor Sam Neill: Did I ever tell you this? (Did I tell you that?) She wrote it while she was undergoing chemotherapy.
Describing her journey with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, the 75-year-old Jurassic Park star told the Guardian she was. “I’m just happy to be alive”. He has a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and will likely need chemotherapy once a month for the rest of his life.
“I can’t pretend I didn’t have some dark moments last year”, said Sam Neill. “But those dark times brought out the light and made me feel grateful every day and immensely grateful for all my friends.”.
He learned his diagnosis last March when he was at a press conference for “Jurassic World The World After” after he felt swelling in his glands.
“I saw that I had nothing left to do”, she remembers. “And I am used to working. I like working. I like to go to work I like to be with people every day and enjoy human companionship, friendship and all that. And suddenly, I was deprived of it. And I was confused what to do”Says the actor who brilliantly played Professor and paleontologist Alan Grant in the Jurassic Park series.
“I never thought of writing a book. But as I was writing, I realized that it kind of gave me a reason to live and said, ‘I’ll write this tomorrow… it really saved my life because I couldn’t have spent this period doing nothing.”Sam Neill, who also appeared in the first season of “The Piano Lesson” and “Peaky Blinders,” added.
Sam Neill clarified that the chemotherapy treatment had failed, but the new monthly chemotherapy drug prevented the cancer from recurring.
Sam Neill, who has lived in New Zealand since the 90s, has vineyards here and produces a wine that he markets.
