Sam was recommended to us by another model on our books, and we can already see why; when he came into the office to meet the team, we did nothing but laugh! We chatted to him about his career, his mischievous side & his strangest job so far (a must read!)
Tell us a bit about you
I'm an actor and model. I like doing things I'm afraid of and stepping out of my comfort zone. This year I'm doing an ironman for MND and I'm building a narrow boat from the ground up. My favourite life quote is by Anais Nin..... 'Life contracts and expands in proportion to one's courage'
Who (or what?) inspired you to become a model?
Well my friend has been a really successful model for years and she thought I should give it a go so here I am. I've was a professional dancer years ago and now I'm an actor but I've never really seen myself as a model. Does anyone ever really see themselves as other people do though?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you move to?
So I've lived in Ireland and I've lived in Florida for 3 years too. I've also been lucky enough to travel the world doing various jobs. I've come to realise that it's not where you are but where you're at
How would your best friend describe you?
Lol.... Not sure I can say! If you've seen the lego movie my girlfriend basically told me I was Emmet! Sad thing is she's probably right! Lol
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
I would choose invisibility (it’s the best one!) I’m quite mischievous so I could do whatever I wanted!
What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani, it’s lifechanging! It’s about her dying and coming back to life, fighting and curing herself of cancer. It’s profound and a just a really good read.
What are your top 3 life goals
- To Have a child (maybe just the one!)
- Be in a loving relationship
- To have complete financial security so I can focus on 1 & 2
Describe your strangest modelling job to date
This was a dance job, it was a music video/short film. Basically I was on all fours, on a leash (S&M style!) whilst a woman was walking me and 3 other dancers, it was very strange! Let's just say there was beach balls, dog leads and baby oil involved!
