Sam grew up always knowing that he was going to be an actor.
His parents have had a while to get used to the idea! When his siblings flat out refused to be in any more of his home movies, he looked elsewhere – playing roles on stage, in short films, commercials, anything he could get his hands on! This drive and fascination with stories eventually led Sam to the International Screen Academy, where his passion and curiosity began to be shaped and channelled with technique. This combination of technique and passion now launches Sam into the industry, ready to explore life through eyes different from his own, and tell their stories to an audience who needs to hear them.
‘Actors have an extraordinary power to grow in audiences an empathy for those different from themselves. If I can do that for even one person, I will have done my job.’
