Popular actor Nigel John Dermot Neill was born in Omagh, Northern Ireland, on September 14, 1947. The third-generation New Zealander father of Nigel, an army soldier stationed in Northern Ireland, saw his birth.
He was referred to as a “military brat” because of the multiple transfers he went through as a kid as a result of his father’s line of work.
Nigel struggled with stammering in his early years and was frequently embarrassed by it. He even went so far as to wish that no one would approach him.
In school, where there were numerous other Nigels, he started referring to himself as “Sam” in order to avoid being addressed by his common name Nigel.
He gradually outgrew his stammering troubles, but he still exhibits stammering traits on occasion.
