Sam Neill, the 75-year-old star of Jurassic Park, recently revealed that he battled stage 3 blood cancer and underwent chemotherapy before switching to a new drug. Though a brief excerpt from his upcoming memoir caused “concerns over his health to go into overdrive”, the actor was quick to assure fans in a video posted on Instagram that he’s “fine” and has been in remission for the past eight months.

Neill said his memoir was an idea he got during treatment, explaining that writing it “was actually sort of giving me a reason to live.” He added that while he plans to continue using a monthly chemotherapy drug, he’s looking forward to “diving back into onscreen work within days” in the limited series Apples Never Fall.
