Hollywood star Sam Neill, 76, said the treatment he is receiving for leukemia may stop working. Now he apologizes to the fans.
“Jurassic Park” actor Sam Neill recently said in a television interview that a treatment that slowed the development of a rare form of leukemia has only a temporary effect.
He writes Delivery time.
“I’m ready for it,” Neil told the Australian Story TV show, according to the industry magazine.
The veteran actor is known from a number of blockbuster films, dramas and television series, such as the Oscar-winning “Piano” (1993) and the critically acclaimed Netflix series “Peaky Blinders.” Neil claims he’s not afraid, but finds the situation “disturbing.”
Despite health challenges and treatments that feel like going “ten rounds with a boxer,” retirement is never out of the question, says Neil.
– Don’t worry
In his own video Instagram profile On Tuesday, October 17, a clearly emotional Sam Neill disputes the seriousness of what appeared in the television interview.
He claims the remark was taken out of context.
She commented on one of the TV shows that the treatment would not work in the end. It happens, but don’t worry, Sam reassures Neil in the video.
– I’m inside forgivenessforgivenessForgiveness is healing from illness. The disease recedes. As in reducing cancerous tumors or specific symptoms. Plans to be for many years. I’m bored of you all with this, there’s a lot of work to be done. The day the treatment fails, we try other things.
Moreover, Sam Neill says there is a major development on the cancer treatment front.
-So please don’t worry. “I’m getting a lot of messages on social media and from friends, and I’m sorry for the inconvenience,” Neil says, clearly choking back tears.
He pulls himself together again and smiles at the camera with a trembling voice:
– Everything’s fine, I’m on my way to work.
Stage 3 leukemia
Sam Neill himself told about the diagnosis in his autobiography Have I Ever Told You This? Which was released in March of this year.
The treatment is said to have set him back significantly and helped him begin writing.
– I like to work. I love going to work. I love being with people every day and I enjoy the friendship and all of that. Suddenly this was taken away from me and I thought what am I going to do? Neil told The Guardian at the time.
While promoting “Jurassic World Dominion” in 2022, Neil discovered swollen lymph nodes. Just weeks later, the actor was diagnosed with stage 3 leukemia.
After an unsuccessful course of chemotherapy, he was put on another type of chemotherapy which he must continue every month for the rest of his life.
And it is this treatment that, according to Neil, will eventually stop working.
– Glad to be alive
Sam Neill claims that working on the autobiography gave him a new perspective on his career:
“I can’t tell you how lucky I am to spend time with so many actors,” Neil says in a recent TV interview, writes Deadline.
-I really liked a lot of them and really admired a lot of them.
He previously told The Guardian that he is grateful for life:
-The dark moments make the bright moments more intense, and make me grateful for every day and incredibly grateful for all my friends. I’m just happy to be alive.
