Sam has been a professional actor for over a decade, amassing a large body of work with vast experience in screen, though his roots and training have been based in theatre.


Sam has been teaching and directing on BA (HONS) Acting courses and at performing arts schools for as long as he has been a professional actor. He has a knowledgable insight into the audition processes that faces a young actor attempting to embark on these courses and what a panel of tutors may be looking for after being a member of that panel himself.


If you are preparing to audition for drama schools, a professional actor looking to keep your skills sharp or a school or theatre company, you can contact Sam via Twitter @SamuelOatley and via email at for information about packages and prices on one to one acting classes and acting workshops.
