(CNN) In his forthcoming memoir, actor Sam Neill, best known for his work in the “Jurassic Park” franchise films, reveals that he recently battled stage III blood cancer, but is now cured.
According to the Guardian, who spoke to Neill, he had angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma and had undergone chemotherapy.
The outlet reports that he is on a relatively new chemotherapy drug that he will take monthly for the rest of his life.
“I’m not off the hook as such, but there’s no cancer in my body,” Neill told the publication.
A representative for Neill confirmed to CNN that he is in remission.
“I can’t pretend that the last year didn’t have its dark moments,” Neill added in the interview. “But those dark times bring light, you know, and made me grateful for every day and immensely grateful for all my friends. Just happy to be alive.”
Neill is now “very well and back to work”, added his rep.
He’s currently in production on “Apples Never Fall,” a Peacock limited series based on the bestselling novel by “Big Little Lies” author Liane Moriarty. The project also stars Annette Bening.
Neill’s book, “Did I Ever Tell You This?” is scheduled for March 21. It is available for pre-order.
