Sam Neill Provides Update About His Blood Cancer Diagnosis

Sam Neill is giving fans a much needed update about his cancer diagnosis.

In the video posted to Instagram, Sam addressed the headlines.

“My news seems to be all over the news at the moment, and it’s sort of ‘Cancer! Cancer! Cancer!’ which is slightly tiresome because as you see, I am alive and well and I have been in remission for eight months, which feels really good,” he told his fans.

Sam added that he’s “alive and kicking and I’m going to work.”

“I just wish the headline wasn’t ‘that thing’ so much, because the main thing is that I have written this book, it’s called ‘Did I Ever Tell You This?’, and it does mention cancer because that’s the sort of context in which I wrote it,” he explained. “But I didn’t really mean to write a book, I needed something to do while I was undergoing treatment , and I am used to going to work and I suddenly couldn’t go to work.”
