‘Jurassic Park’ Actor Steps Forward to Clarify False Statements Made About Stage 3 Cancer

It’s been 30 years since Jurassic Park was released in cinemas worldwide, captivating millions of people’s minds and hearts with a film about dinosaurs, humans, and playing God. The film was the first to use CGI or Computer-generated imagery to bring to life the dinosaurs you see in the movie. With the blend of practical effects, even after 30 years, the film still holds up in graphics.

The movie starred some pretty big names, like Richard Attenborough, who played the film’s antagonist, Mr. John Hammond. Some other words include Jeff Goldblum, who portrayed the witty king of chaos himself, Dr. Ian Malcolm. Who can forget the lovely, intelligent, strong, and beautiful Dr. Ellie Sattler, played by the fantastic Laura Dern, who portrayed a strong female lead during a time when women were often viewed as damsels in distress.

But most hearts belong to the great Sam Neill, who played Dr. Alan Grant, the paleontologist who kept the audience informed on what was happening throughout the movie and was personally responsible for boosting the paleontologist community in the ’90s and early ’00s. He also appeared in Jurassic Park III (2001), not directed by Steven Spielberg. The book written and created by Michael Crichton only went as far as Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997). Neill only appeared in two of the first films of the Jurassic Park franchise.

Sam Neill’s acting career may not be as extensive as other Hollywood stars, but he boasts a pretty impressive acting resume. Neill has starred in films like The Piano (1993) and Hunt For the Wilderpeople (2016). Ever since Jurassic Park was released, Neill has been from movie to television show, acting in projects that fit his desires and passion, especially as an open advocate for the people of New Zealand as he is, after all, a New Zealander himself.

But tragic news broke out for the actor in March of this year after revealing in an interview that the actor had undergone chemotherapy since March 2022 after being diagnosed with stage 3 angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. People began speculating on his diagnosis during his publicity bouts for Jurassic World Dominion (2022).

But rumors started to intensify that his stage 3 cancer had spread to the point of no return, meaning that eventually, the treatment would no longer work, leading to his tragic death. But that does not seem to be the case. Neill stepped forward and revealed a shocking truth after a recent interview was taken out of context.

During an interview with The Independent, Sam Neill revealed that “he had been warned by his doctors” that his cancer treatment would stop working at some point, leading many to speculate that this meant the actor was aware of his eventual passing from cancer. But that does not seem to be the case.

Neill took to social media to clear up the rumors and reveal the shocking truth about this cancer treatment and overall health. Here’s what Neill had to say on social media:


Please ignore conflated stories in the press today. A passing remark on the pgram last night has been taken out of context. Please be assured that I am firmly in remission, and plan to remain so for years to come. 

All is well, beautiful day here in Western Australia, and tomorrow it’ll be too. 

There you have it, folks. Sam Neill is healthy and living his best life as he continues to act for years to come. Thankfully, his stage 3 cancer is in remission, meaning he is slowly recovering and will soon be cancer-free, which is terrific news.
