Sam Neill arrives for the 2019 AACTA Awards Presented by Foxtel at The Star on Dec. 4, 2019 in Sydney, Australia.

He’s been chased by dinosaurs, played an ace spy and piloted spaceships, now Sam Neill can add a cover of a Radiohead classic to his weird and wonderful resume.

The veteran New Zealand actor posted his self-isolation, solo performance on social media, switching out one particular word with “fecking.”

Neill gave a hearty spoiler alert to accompany the clip. “I can only apologise to Tom Yorke et al for murdering a song I love.”

The three-time Golden Globe winner is currently across the ditch. “I’m in Australia for the duration it seems - so staying in touch with the farm, with the family, and friends scattered around the world is really important,” he writes.

It’ll take some time before Neill can return to his homeland. New Zealand’s borders are currently closed to all but local citizens, all of whom must enter a 14-day period of self-isolation or quarantine when they return. In the meantime, he has nine Radiohead studio albums to work his way through.

Watch his performance below.
