Growing up in a family full of professional actors, Sam’s childhood was nowhere near normal.
Born in Providence, Rhode Island, but growing up as the definition of “bicoastal,” Sam and his family moved over 15 times – moving from Rhode Island to New York to Los Angeles and back again.
With actor Tim Daly and actress Amy Van Nostrand as his parents, Sam was convinced he would break the line of actors, and instead, was more interested in sports.
It wasn’t until he took a film class at Middlebury College, did he realize that it was his passion.
Paving his own way in Hollywood, Sam has guest starred and earned memorable recurring roles on some of TV’s biggest hits such as NBC’s ‘The Office’ (where he played ‘Oscar’s’ gay love interest ‘Matt’ who works in shipping) and ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.
” In addition to his work in film and television, Sam co-hosts the popular YouTube series“The Daly Show” with his father Tim Daly. The duo, who are incredibly close, are also the only father/son to play or lend their voice as Superman (Sam Daly for the animated “Justice League” and Tim Daly for the series “Superman“)
