Christian Movie Connect Episode 45 – Samuel Davis
Texas native Samuel Davis, star of the faith-based film, “New Hope” fell in love with acting in high school after auditioning for Julius Caesar, whereupon he dropped out of football and track & field. He is currently a student at the University of Texas at Austin. He began his film career in student films and commercials until he landed the lead role in “New Hope.” He has since been cast in three additional films, including the upcoming “Machete Kills,” written and directed by Robert Rodreiguz with an all-star cast.
In this interview Davis speaks with CMC host Cheryl Ariaz Wicker at the premiere of “New Hope” in West Monroe, Louisiana.
Samuel plays the role of Michael Evans, a senior year student who was quite unhappy when his family moved to a small town called New Hope. Michael experiences a lot of challenges with life and his faith especially after meeting Lucas (played by Ben Davies).
“New Hope,” is set to release October 9, 2012.
