Podcast: Sam Neill: Did I Ever Tell You This?

By his own account, the career of celebrated actor Sam Neill has been a series of unpredictable turns of fortune. From discovering acting at boarding school in Christchurch, to treading the boards in amateur Shakespeare productions, to finding his lucky break and going on to star in films such as The Piano, Jurassic Park and Peaky Blinders.

Listen in as Neill shares true tales from his storied life, chronicled in his new memoir, Did I Ever Tell You This?, in conversation with comedy legend Jane Kennedy.

This event was proudly supported by ARA Group. It was also supported through the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund – a $200 million partnership of the Victorian Government and the City of Melbourne.
