Sam Elliott is a celebrated American actor who is distinguished by his lanky body, thick moustache, and rich, booming voice. Sam Elliott whose full name is Samuel Pack Elliott was born on August 9, 1944, at the Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento, California, USA.
Elliott’s parents were from El Paso, Texas, and he has a grandfather who served in the Battle of San Jacinto as a surgeon. When he was 13 years old, his family relocated from California to Portland, Oregon.
He always talked about becoming an actor but his father disagreed with him and advised him to get a college degree rather because he thought it would be hard for Elliott to make a name in Hollywood.
In 1969 after his father died from a heart attack, Elliott dropped out of the University of Oregon where his father forced him to enrol and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
He started as a character actor in 1969, when he received his first television role as Dan Kenyon in the episode “The Crystal Maze” by Judd for the Defense.
