Sam Daly Bio
Hailing from a prestigious line of Hollywood royalty, actor Sam Daly is ready for his turn in the spotlight and is set to co-star as ‘Officer Brendan O’Malley’ in the RZA’s (MAN WITH IRON FIST) heist thriller CUT THROAT CITY alongside Eiza Gonzalez (BABY DRIVER), TI, and Wesley Snipes among others. Daly thrives as ’Marcus Gantt’ in the zombie comedy-horror film OFFICE UPRISING opposite Brenton Thwaites (“Titans”), Zachary Levi, and Jane Levy (DON’T BREATHE) set for a February/March 2018 release. He can additionally be seen heating up television sets across the nation as marijuana lobbyist and ‘Daisy Grant’s’ (Patina Miller) fiancée, ‘Win Barrington’ in CBS’ hit political drama series “Madam Secretary,” opposite Téa Leoni, Geoffrey Arend, and his Emmy and SAG Award-nominated father Tim Daly. Season four of “Madam Secretary” currently airs Sundays at 10pm on CBS.
Growing up in a family full of celebrated professional actors, Sam Daly’s childhood was anything but normal. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, he grew up as the definition of “bi-coastal” and he and his family lived an actor’s life, moving where production took them – from Rhode Island to New York to Los Angeles and back again. With actor Tim Daly and actress Amy Van Nostrand as his parents, Sam was convinced he would break the line of actors and instead was more interested in sports. It wasn’t until he took a film class at Middlebury College did he realize that acting was his passion.
Paving his own way in Hollywood, Sam has guest starred and earned memorable recurring roles on some of TV’s biggest hits such as NBC’s Golden Globe-winning comedy series “The Office” (where he played ‘Oscar’s’ gay love interest ‘Matt’ who worked in shipping) and ABC’s 38-time Emmy Award-nominated and winning series “Grey’s Anatomy.” He can also be seen in a widely watched Dr. Pepper commercial opposite Doug Flutie and Steve Smith Sr. called “Backyard Football” which is currently airing during the primetime football season. In addition to his work in film and television, Sam stars the popular YouTube series “The Daly Show” with his father Tim Daly. The duo, who are incredibly close, are also the only father/son to play or lend their voice as ‘Superman’ (Sam Daly for the animated “Justice League” and Tim Daly for the series “Superman”). Sam is also a talented writer and producer and enjoys creating new content.
When Sam is not filming, he loves to play and watch sports (his teams are Lakers, Dodgers, Kings, and Cowboys) and give back to the community. He is actively involved in the Creative Coalition, where his father is the current president. Sam also donates heavily to multiple organizations dedicated to cancer treatment and child care.
