However, as of 2023, both of them have avoided talking about their relationship, making fans believe that they are no longer together; they might be trying to keep it secret, who knows. Speaking of his married life and wife, he was a married man. While filming Omen III: The Last War (1981), in which Sam played the starring role, Neill and Lisa Harrow got to know one another. Sam's role in the film was simply nasty, but off-screen, he fell in love with Lisa Harrow.
Like Sam, Lisa is a native of New Zealand and has an impressive background in both stage and movie acting. Sam from Two Paddocks revealed in an interview that he and Lisa dated intermittently for ten years and have a son together. However, they got separated.
Afterward, in 1989, Neill married makeup artist Noriko Watanabe. Who was Sam's second spouse, then? While he was filming the Dead Calm movie in 1987, he met her. Yet unlike Lisa, Sam's second wife wasn't an actress. Makeup artist Noriko Watanabe was employed by the movie's team. In 1989, Sam and Noriko got married, and Sam later formally adopted Maiko Spencer, Noriko's daughter. Elena was the name of the daughter Sam and Noriko shared. Also, he took in Watanabe's first marriage child as his own. In 2017, Neill and Watanabe parted ways.
As of 2023, Sam is single, and his girlfriend, Laura Tingle, with whom he started dating in 2017 after his second marriage ended, seems to have parted ways. However, these are the assumptions that neither Sam nor Laura has confirmed, so we can only hope they are together.
