Baby brings star to town
Invercargill residents were left a little starstruck this afternoon when they spotted actor Sam Neill eating lunch in the city centre today.
The Queenstown-based actor was dining at Esk St's Bonsai Restaurant with family, who were visiting from Central Otago.
Neill said he was expecting a grandchild and the group had travelled down to use Invercargill's medical services, because there were none available in Central Otago.
''You can't have a baby in Central," he said.
"The whanau is expanding exponentially.''
