The casting news has been confirmed on Sam’s Spotlight page, along with his upcoming feature film role.

Since leaving ‘EastEnders’, Sam’s been pursuing a Hollywood career and back in March, he landed a part in the Lionsgate movie ‘Leatherface’, a prequel to ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

Sam isn’t the only star to swap Walford for West Hollywood, as earlier this month it was confirmed that Ben Hardy, who starred as Peter Beale, will play Angel in the upcoming ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ flick.

The next series of ‘Silent Witness’ will be the 19th, and it’s expected to return to our screens in 2016.
