Neil is a brawny Australian sailor working for the Karaboudjan who appears in The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.
In the film, Neil was first seen with Allan Thompson, Tom, and Ali preparing an attack on Tintin thinking he was still imprisoned in one of the cargo rooms, without knowing that he and Snowy had already escaped. Later, Neil and Ali are tasked to dispatch Tintin onboard and hold Captain Archibald Haddock, the former leader of the Karaboudjan captured. Although Neil does end up encountering Tintin eventually, the young reporter outdoes the sailor and defeats Neil with a jujitsu kick. Angered, he then attempts to shoot him down with his MP-40 SMG, but Tintin along with Haddock and Snowy successfully evacuate by seizing a lifeboat.
