The 75-year-old "Jurassic Park" actor was
reportedly diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma - a
rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma - last March after suffering swollen
glands during press engagements for "Jurassic World Dominion".
Chemotherapy treatment initially failed but Neill is now
cancer-free after switching to a new anti-cancer drug that he
will take for the rest of his life, according to the Guardian
Australia interview about the star's upcoming memoir.
"The thing is, I'm crook. Possibly dying," he reportedly writes
in chapter one, "I may have to speed this up."
Northern Ireland-born Neill, who lives in New Zealand, began
acting in the 1970s and is perhaps best known for his role as
paleontologist Dr Alan Grant in the "Jurassic Park" franchise.
