Jurassic Park actor Sam Neill reveals he's being treated for stage-three blood cancer

Per The Guardian, Neill first experienced swollen glands while doing publicity for Jurassic World Dominion in March last year and was soon diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma.

The 75-year-old actor will be on chemotherapy medication for the rest of his life, although he is now cancer-free.

3. Me too, he was excellent in "Peaky Blinders." Not a lovable character by any means, but he played

it so well. Glad he's doing good.

14. I saw the movie probably 25 years after it came out. He was very young.

9. been a fan since 'reilly ace of spies'.

was rly disappointed a while back when i found it, tried to watch it, and realized the quality was crap. think it was the early days of video tape. didnt age well.

saw the had cancer, but not that it had already been successfully treated. good news.
