His collection can now be found in some of the hottest hip-trendy stores throughout Los Angeles. Scream Famous owner Canan Fraser says, “Sam’s Chosen One line is a big seller. We can never keep enough of it in the store. It is a great quality t-shirt, and the powerful meaning behind the brand makes it even more popular.”
It is now 6 p.m., after a full twelve-hour day of shooting; Sam is on the phone with his friend actress/singer Drew Sidora. Sidora tells us, “I have been best friends with Sam eight years. We have shared some of the most amazing times, especially in our careers. He is one of the most down to earth people you will ever meet. When I am having a bad day, Sam is always that ray of light with the sweetest spirit.”
Completing a total of six films by the end of the Summer, a new album, three major modeling campaigns, and a new clothing collection, Sam says he believes he is ready for the next level. “I am just in a calm place for the first time in my life. This business teaches you to never be satisfied. I was talking to two of my closest childhood friends recently, Julie and Rebecca, and they both told me how proud they were of all the things I have accomplished in my career. It reassured me that if it all ended tomorrow I know I have had some of the most amazing experiences and most of all I have been able to live my dream. But I know the best if yet to come.”
