With a career that dates back to the early ’70s, Sam Neill has had a major presence on screen in both movies and TV for the better part of 50 years. Audiences around the world know him as Alan Grant from the “Jurassic Park” films, but that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his incredible career. Some of his pre-Alan Grant credits include “Dead Calm” and “Possession.” He also starred in John Carpenter’s cult classic “In the Mouth of Madness,” the sci-fi favorite “Event Horizon,” and the hit series “Peaky Blinders.”
And that really is just scratching the surface, as Neill has more than 150 acting credits to his name. Well into his 70s, he has no desire to slow down, it seems — cancer be damned. Speaking further, Neill explained that there were rough moments over the last year, but it all helped to lend some perspective:
“I can’t pretend that the last year hasn’t had its dark moments. But those dark moments throw the light into sharp relief, you know, and have made me grateful for every day and immensely grateful for all my friends. Just pleased to be alive.”
“Did I Ever Tell You This?” is set to hit shelves on March 21, 2023.
