Later Sam, who is married to Laura Haddock and also has a son, Pip, three, gushed about his joy of being the father of two.
& # 39; I love being a father, I love two, I really accept the challenge, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; I think every man should be as hands-on as possible. I think that's what's great about our society as it is now, I feel that men are willing and want to be more involved than before. & # 39;
Sam told Chris how he was preparing for his role as hardened criminal Liam, who was released from prison just after eight years.
He said: I have done a lot of boxing training, I had never beaten so this was a whole new course of learning.
& # 39; I think the anger to be a tired new father was released in boxing school.
& # 39; In particular, there is a scene where I look around at my ex-partner and child and I actually fell asleep, I was so tired. & # 39;
He added jokingly: & # 39; Forgive me for a year if I look tired. & # 39;

& # 39; Liam & # 39; s drive for redemption sees him trapped in a web of conspiracy, crime and corruption. & # 39;
The Pirates of the Caribbean star met wife Laura in 2011 and it was love at first sight for Sam, who said in October 2015: “My wife, Laura, is undoubtedly my best friend. We met during an audition for My Week with Marilyn and immediately there was a spark.
& # 39; We discovered that we had the same agent and bumped into each other the next morning [a London Underground] station.
& # 39; I didn't know anything about her except her name was Laura, she was very attractive and she seemed sweet. But I went home, woke up my girlfriend at 7 o'clock in the morning and said, "I just met the girl I want to marry. I love this girl, I love her, she's perfect."
And, like a fairy tale for the digital age, Laura Sam later followed on Facebook, four months after their first meeting.
They get married in 2013 and actor Sam told The Edit: & # 39; Getting married was easily one of the biggest achievements of the past 12 months. & # 39;
