Sam Neill is one of New Zealand’s greatest and longest serving Hollywood exports.

He’s starred in many movies and television shows, from Jurassic Park and The Piano to more recently Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople and Peaky Blinders.

But Neill is also a wine maker, farmer, and social media star, where his animals, named after co-stars and friends, have become celebrities in their own rights.

He's back on our screens in Palm Beach, set in Sydney around a reunion of old friends that stirs up old conflicts. 

He joined Andrew Dickens to discuss his latest movie, why he prefers to keep busy, and why he isn't interested in producing his own movies.
