Sam’s childhood wasn’t one you would find in books, but that made him the tough guy he is now; when he was five years old, he and his family moved to New Galloway where he went to Kells Primary School; for the next seven years, Sam lived in converted stables in the grounds of Castle Kenmure, until he moved to Edinburgh. While there, he was a pupil at James Gillespie’s High School for a year, after which he transferred to the Edinburgh Rudolph Steiner School until the end of the sixth year. Following his matriculation, Sam had to work in order to support his further studies, but also his explorations of the world. He traveled a lot, and upon return, enrolled at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, from which he obtained his degree in 2003.

He actually started his career in 2001 with the short film “Small Moments”, but immediately the next year moved to stage work, and brought attention to himself with the role of John in the play “Outlying Islands”, played at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London. Sam was nominated for the Laurence Oliver Award in the category for Most Promising Performer. Despite succeeding on screen, Sam remained faithful to theater over the years, and has appeared in such plays as “Knives in Hens” in 2005, then “Hamlet” in 2007, “Romeo and Juliet” and “Macbeth” in 2008, and in “King John” in 2012, among many others, which consistently increased his reputation and his net worth.

His first notable role on screen was as Philip Dorr in the TV mini-series “Island at War” (2004), and then in 2005 he played Andrew Murray in the TV series “River City”, slowly building a name for himself beside theater productions. In 2007, Sam had the lead part in the romantic crime-drama television film “A Very British Sex Scandal”, which chronicles the life of Peter Wildeblood, who managed to decriminalize homosexuality in Great Britain; the film was directed by Patrick Reams, and also features Nicholas Le Prevost and Harriet Eastcott in the lead roles. Sam continued with roles in television films, such as that of Geoffrey ‘Boy’ Wellum in the biopic about Geoffrey Wellum, one of the Royal Air Force members in the 1940s, “First Light” in 2010, and then in 2011 played Ashton Prince of Castlebury in the television film “A Princess for Christmas”, while he also played Alexander the Great in the film “Young Alexander the Great”. All of these appearances increased Sam’s net worth, while also helping him build his acting portfolio. Thanks to his success, both on stage and on screen, in 2014 he was chosen for the role of Jamie Fraser in the TV fantasy drama series “Outlander” (2014-2017), which increased his net worth to a large degree, while also earning him three Saturn Award nominations, and a Gold Derby Award, among other honors. The same year he appeared in the drama film “Emulsion”, but since then has become focused primarily on his work on the TV series, although in 2016 he starred in the fantasy drama “When the Starlight Ends”, with Arabella Oz, and David Arquette, which also added to his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Sam has been in a relationship with Mackenzie Mauzy since 2016. He is a well-known philanthropist; Sam is a patron of YTAS, and has worked with a number of charitable organizations, plus in 2015 started his own foundation – My Peak Challenge.

1I was born and brought up in the countryside. I used to live in a sort of converted stables on the grounds of a castle, and I spent a lot of my childhood running around with a pretend sword pretending to be Robert the Bruce.
2I was a big 'Battlestar Galactica' fan and 'Star Trek' fan. I grew up watching those.
3I'm very lucky. I had a great childhood.
4I'm obsessed with the moon and space travel, so if I could incorporate that, I'd love to go to space.
5My accent is... sort of an Edinburgh sort of soft southwest Scottish accent. It could almost be English.
6I actually got an initial sense of how big 'Outlander' was going to be on Twitter. We're all on there to help promote the show and also interact with the fans.
7There's something about the silence of people listening to someone or watching someone - I just... I love that.
8Shakespeare language is fantastic, and to be honest, you don't need to do anything to Shakespeare.
9I auditioned for 'Game of Thrones' seven times! Loads of times.
10You do have to learn how to wear a kilt, and it's certainly very liberating and very freeing, but surprisingly very comfortable to wear, to ride a horse in a kilt. I was surprised by that.
11Working on 'Outlander' has been a delight, it really has. I had kind of forgotten what Scotland was like, and I'd turned into a bit of a Londoner.
12People forget actors can adapt and change their appearance. In this industry, people sometimes cast to type, or as close to type as possible, but actors are a lot more versatile than you think!
13I never once dreamed of sort of being able to be in an American TV series, you know? It was all about theater and touring and sort of being an actor around Scottish theater.
1Narrated the 8th Installment of author Cassandra Clare's "Shadowhunter Academy" series, "The Fiery Trial" which was released September, 2015.
