Sam joined the cast of Home and Away in December 2017, stepping into the recurring role of Jasmine Delaney.  

The decision to cast a reality star with no acting experience sparked backlash from several industry experts, many of whom labelled Seven’s decision as ‘disappointing’ and a ‘publicity stunt’.  

Brendan, the artistic director of Australian Acting Academy, said at the time: ‘It demonstrates that Home and Away has lost faith in its writers if directors are resorting to this kind of stunt, rather than using their story lines to pull viewers.’

While admitting Sam may have a ‘natural ability’, he concluded: ‘This is what’s known as ‘jumping the shark’, in other words attempting to create publicity for something that is perceived as not warranting the attention, especially something that is believed to be past its peak.’
