The ARG team and I were so saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Sam Christensen. Sam impacted thousands of actors around the world with his signature image and branding process and acting coaching. Last year, I had the privilege of sitting down with him to discuss a variety of topics, and Sam shared his wisdom and perspective with the ARG community. I’ve been thinking a lot about Sam… reflecting on his generosity and his love of actors, so I wanted to share these interviews with you again.

Thank you for watching and remembering. If you have a memory of Sam you would like to share, please write it in the comments.

Much love,

Ajarae Coleman | Workshop Guru

  1. Ajarae, thank you for reposting these interviews! Sam was truly a special man. His love and respect for actors and his beliefs about the role of storytellers in our society changed me for the better. His legacy will live on in those he impacted, and these interviews will help to do just that.

  2. I was in Sam’s first class he taught in Philadelphia PA. I was 5 months pregnant and just trying to keep my acting alive while I waited for the baby to come. Sam took me under his wing and taught me so much about myself. He opened up so many doors that I did not know I had to open. He was really caring and I will miss he so much. My only regret is that I never got to attend an alumni class to see he once again.
