Sam achieved many things during his career “A great number of skills shaped Sam into the award-winning actor and writer he was, but without a doubt, the numerous languages he spoke was top of the list. Enabling him to appear in a great many drama TV series, films, telenovelas, and even comedies. There was not a genre that escaped him. From Johannesburg to Los Angeles, acting, teaching writing, and appearing on stage, he loved what he did, which was always evident when watching him perform. Even appearing as support in Ace Ventura: When nature calls in 1995,” said the management.

The actor wrote a book and he was an Oscar-nomination actor. “One of Sam’s greatest achievements includes being nominated for an Oscar, playing the lead in Senzeni na?, which was nominated for Best Short Story by the American Film Institution (AFI) in 1990. In Sam’s later life he wrote a book “The business of the business of showbusiness” which took on the form of an actor’s handbook. And more recently was honored with a Doctorate degree in philosophy from University of Zululand.”
