TV TIMES A DE­LIGHT FOR SAM

7 Days in Dubai - - LIFE IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU -

Sam Neill is well known for his TV work thanks to some blind­ing per­for­mances such as his turn as Chester Camp­bell in 1920s Bri­tish gang­land epic Peaky Blin­ders. Next up is a role in Tu­tankhamun, a drama about the fa­mous dis­cov­ery of the Egyp­tian tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. Neill is happy to work on qual­ity con­tent, re­gard­less of whether it’s for small or big screen. He says: “I don’t think it mat­ters, things move very quickly and now there are all th­ese dif­fer­ent plat­forms. There is loads of ma­te­rial around, on­line too. Shows like Peaky Blin­ders for in­stance are very en­cour­ag­ing be­cause there is qual­ity work to be had on dif­fer­ent sizes of screen. The qual­ity that comes out of Amer­ica, and the phe­nom­e­non of binge watch­ing, is some­thing no one would have ex­pected 10 years ago.”
