After hearing the exciting news back in December that Sam had appeared on the longlist for the Best Actor award at the Evening Standard British Film Awards for his incredible portrayal of Captain Stanhope in Journey’s End, we were thrilled to hear the news that he has now made it onto the shortlist for the category and is therefore in the running to receive the prestigious award alongside some other very worthy contenders.

We are so happy that Sam has been recognised for his role in this beautiful film, which tells the story of a group of soldiers during the First World War all awaiting their fate from a dugout in Northern France as the Germans prepare an attack. As Captain Stanhope, Sam portrays a young officer in charge of these men as his own mental state disintegrates. We were lucky enough to see the film at last year’s London Film Festival premiere and couldn’t be more proud that Sam has been recognised for such a heartfelt and beautiful portrayal. We will keep our fingers crossed for him!

The Evening Standard British Film Awards ceremony will take place at Claridges in London on the 8th February. Good luck Sam!
