Fans of Home and Away will remember Sam as the villainous Kane, a role he played from 2001 to 2009.

According to The Irish Sun, Sam has mostly stepped away from acting to focus on directing and overseeing scripts for the past six years. 

Sam made his debut in the Fair City holiday special just before Christmas.  

He said: ‘This year I think it was full throttle fun – as much fun and as much heart as we could pack into the show.

‘I think I come into the fun category really, my character anyway. [Barbie Man] is an Australian barbecue chef, who wears a kind of cowboy hat.’

Sam also spoke to The Irish Sun about his time on Home and Away.

‘It was such a great show to work on… It is amazing because I’ve been on the other side of [the cameras], and you’re suddenly thrust into the limelight.’

Kane was involved in one of Home and Away’s most controversial storylines.

The party boy character raped high school student Dani (Tammin Sursok) at her family home in a scene that aired in 2001.

Two years later, Dani’s sister Kirsty (Christie Hayes) married Kane in a twisted storyline that would spark outrage today.
