  1. Sam you are flawless. Great interview. You are just getting beter. And better.congratulations on you great career.I hope your life continues to be amazing. Do not change.

  2. The movie was awesome! Love him in it. He did an amazing job. The fight scenes were so fast and brilliantly timed that it looked real. It really is a must see. Can't wait to buy it.

  3. I loooooove sam hueghan, but I dont think he would be able to carry the weight of Bond since Craig reinvented him in a more serious manner.

  4. Sam you did a spectacular job,. In the spy who dumped me. Sam your kissing scene with mila was beautiful. Sam it's time for you to bring those kisses back to Outlander.
