1883 will follow the Dutton family as they travel west on a wagon train. Fans will also learn how they acquired the largest cattle ranch in the United States. Sam plays Shea Brennan in the series and he always rides with partner Thomas (LaMonica). LaMonica shared just what Sam is truly like off the set since they have gotten really close working together.

He said, “Sam’s a great dude. He embraced me from the first time that we met, and he calms the nerves of everyone that he comes in contact with.” He also said that Sam has a very strong work ethic and is “always the first one there, and the last one to leave.”

LaMonica added, “He’s inspiring to watch. He’s a great person and a great actor.” He also admitted that he has to stay focused while working together because sometimes he’s just in awe of the seasoned actor while they are filming.

He said, “Like, there is a scene coming up in episode three of ‘1883’ where he gun-butts one of the immigrants. I had the next line, and there was some action that was about to happen, and I caught myself looking at him like, ‘Wow, that’s how Virgil gun-butted Ike in ‘Tombstone.’ It was the same motion, and I was like, ‘Snap back into reality! It’s time to work right now.’ So, it’s been amazing working with Sam.”
