Sam's creative talent has taken her into the performance base of the industry. With an abundance of experience in both music and acting, she has excelled in both. Her ability to say so much visually without vocalising was paramount to her landing the role of Will's Mother. It is this depth in her performance that pushes Sam to strip away the layers and find the truth in the character she is to portray.
I play the role of Will's Mother. Firstly, I feel honoured to be a part of an amazing new series that tackles so beautifully some controversial, cultural and inspirational issues. I am also privileged to portray a woman in crisis. Many women feel the battle between needing to love and be loved but not to be unhealthily reliant upon it. This dilemma can force us to operate in desperate and negative ways. Unfortunately and fortunately I have felt an affinity with my character. Playing Will's Mother and discovering who she is, what she feels and why she does the things she does has drawn parallels to my own life. I'm not comfortable with everything I have learned but I'm grateful to her for allowing me to explore who we both are.
