Welcome to Peaky Blinders! Sam will playing the role of the politician Oswald Mosley, who was the MP for Harrow between 1918 and 1924. He became leader of the British Union of Fascists in 1932, hosting a rally at Bingley hall [x].
On the 9th of January, he was seen filming in Stockport alongside other cast members. Check out all the photos posted on the DailyMail.
We look forward to watching Sam when the new season airs this spring 2019!
To start the promotion of his upcoming movie The Nightingale, Sam first attended a press conference and photocall. He was joined by co-star Aisling Franciosi and various other cast and team at the Venice Film Festival on September 7th.
“This film was very very challenging. I wasn’t really aware about the true brutality of colonisation and now I’m quite ashamed of. Stepping in my character’s role is the farthest I’ve ever gone”.
A bit later, he also attended the premiere of the movie. A very exciting moment for the cast and crew, all very proud to share their work!
And later that night, The Nightingale took home the special jury prize! We are all so proud and look forward to seeing the movie…
If you still haven’t read what The Nightingale is all about make sure to read this fantastic article giving a real insight into Sam’s character Hawkins. We are so exciting to see Sam take on a role like this which is so unlike any other he’s done before.
Sam attended the Giffoni Festival on the 24th of July 2018, and spent some time with his fans on the red carpet while talking to journalists about his new movie Adrift and why he loves the Giffoni experience so much. You can read what he had to say about his experience there:
“Giffoni is the most important festival in the world because it is dedicated to the youth, and they have the power to decide the future of humanity as well as the future of the most creative side of the cinema industry. They are jurors at Giffoni, and they also know that no one will judge them here: they can finally feel free and listened. I wish I had had the same opportunity when I was a child”.
He also talked about the theme of Giffoni Film Festival’s 48th edition, Aqua: “I’m glad many people are becoming more and more aware of the environmental emergency faced by our oceans. It wouldn’t remain much without water. However, I won’t lose hope despite the current situation. I’m hopeful, the situation is changing a lot, especially thanks to the environmentalists”.
“Giffoni is a special place and your warm welcome moves me to tears. I am touched by all your love and coming back here is extraordinary. I can feel the enthusiasm of that young guy who created this festival almost 50 years ago, and I really wish one day your children will have the incredible chance of being jurors too. You are very lucky – he said in Sala Truffaut – but I am even luckier because I can spend some of my time with you and I am honoured to contribute, in my own little way, to build the history of this event”.

Sam was recently interviewed by WWD during the promo of his recent movie Adrift. He talks about his career and his upcoming projects The Nightingale, The Corrupted and Borderland. Make sure to check out the full interview: Here.
“The great thing about my career lately is that yes things have been incredibly varied, but I’m not going out of my way to make that happen. I’m fortunate enough to get a few offers come my way, and occasionally there will be a script that I’m desperate to do that won’t go my way — and you know, it’s a difficult career path,” he says. “I’m at that point in my career — I’m still youngish and new, and I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I enjoy the most. I haven’t done every genre, I haven’t worked with every director, I haven’t worked with every actor. I just want to float around and try a bit of everything.”
