Music 10/10/2016

Kiwi actor Sam Neill recreated one of his most memorable movie moments live on the Graham Norton Show, with hilarious results.

The Event Horizon star featured alongside Danny DeVito, Miranda Hart, John Bishop, Ewan McGregor and Amber Riley on the UK chat show's red sofa.

Swapping the CG-enhanced jungles of Hawaii where Jurassic Park was shot for the UK chat show's studio took a great deal of improvisation, with Hart taking on the role of Neill's original co-star Laura Dern, while McGregor and Bishop played dinosaurs.

Also during his appearance on the UK chat show, Neill revealed the celebrity names he gives animals on his Central Otago farm - including Meryl Streep, Helena Bonham Carter and Graham Norton.

Neill was on the show to promote Hunt For The Wilderpeople. The full episode airs on TV3 on Friday, October 14, at 8:30pm.
