Sam Neill explains why he’s still “getting a lot of criticism” from Jurassic Park fans.


Sam Neill has explained why he is still being criticized by many Jurassic Park fans, 29 years after publication.

The actor played paleontologist Alan Grant in the 1993 Steven Spielberg film and will return in the upcoming sequel Jurassic World: Dominion.

However, during the promotional trailer for the new film, the New Zealand-born actor opened up vanity fair that his accent in the film continues to upset fans of the original.

Neill explained that he had been trying to perfect using an American accent for the role until Spielberg told him to use his own.

“He came up to me in the middle of the day and said, ‘Hey Sam, do you know that accent we were talking about?’ I said, “Yeah, I’ve been working on this for four weeks…” He said, “Don’t worry, just use your own voice.”

Neill continued, “I said, ‘That’s great Steven, thank you very much.’ And then, four days later, he came up to me and said, ‘Do you know that voice you’re using now?’ I said, ‘Yeah, my voice?’ He said, ‘Somewhere in between.’”

Describing the situation as an “actor’s nightmare,” the actor told co-stars Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, “That’s why I get a lot of criticism to this day: ‘Sam Neill’s American accent in ‘Jurassic Park’ was a load of T-rex poo.’ .”
