He has recorded the audiobook version of Forces of Nature by Brian Cox (Sam's Twitter, @exitthelemming).

On 30 April, Sam will contribute to a live reading of Primo Levi's If This Is A Man at the Royal Festival Hall.

Sam plays Anthony Eden in Darkest Hour, a film starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. Joe Wright directs. Here is a selection of his tweets from filming:
Darkest Hour will be released in November this year.


Sam has written a recommendation on behalf of the National Campaign for the Arts (NCA) regarding Article 50. He has suggested that arts supporters write to their MPs with conditions such as allowing EU nationals currently employed in the UK to stay after Britain has left the EU and Higher Education to continue accessing  EU funds (NCA via their Twitter @artscampaign).

In early January, he narrated the Channel 4 documentary Titanic: The New Evidence (@exitthelemming).
