Let me preface this by saying that Sam absolutely terrifies me. He is the one character that nearly gave me nightmares and I constantly have to watch his scenes through my fingers. In season 1, I knew there was something shady about him, but he was still alright. Everything changed when he became a vampire, though, and since then, I have had a really hard time watching any scene he’s in.
And that’s a testament to Christopher Heyerdahl’s talent. He brings Sam to life with such perfection that he honest to god scares the crap out of me. His expression, his mannerisms, the way he laughs…I just want to run and hide every time he’s on my screen.
