Mad Max star Angus Sampson explains why he keeps his married life with his wife and children secret from the media
You may hardly find Mad Max star Angus Sampson attractive, but he is not to be judged by his looks. This rough and tough looking guy may not be as handsome and cool as other Hollywood dudes, but he sure is talented beyond measure. He has had his share of struggles as well. This is the reason why he has an ample number of fans and admirers who not only adore him as an actor, but also respect him for being a humble human being.
Yes people, this Aussie actor is not just an actor, a producer, a director, a writer and a voice over artist (phew! How can a single person have so many talents at the same?). He is also a great human being who, despite being part of the show biz is a concerned husband and a caring father, who does not want any of his family members to get exposed to the harsh scrutiny of the lime light.
This family guy is concerned about his wife and two children. Talking to The Sydney Morning Herald last year, the proud father to two adorable munchkins; two sons aged five and two, revealed why he has always wanted his little family safe from the prying eyes of the media and paparazzo.
He said that back then, being an actor from Australia and a struggling one, he had to move from place to place, especially in different cities of The United States of America. So, he stated that it was not possible for him to drag his wife and sons wherever he went as it was difficult for his whole family to get visas.
He said that he had to lose several jobs in movies and TV like his dream roles in Breaking Bad because of visa restrictions and overlapping commitments. He was worried about his family who had to make sacrifices and compromises for him. But now that he is popular, all thanks to his break through role in one of the highest grossing films of 2011, Insidious, he became a household name. He later went on to land the role of The Organic Mechanic in Mad Max: Fury Road, which increased his prominence.
Now, he is popular and loved by hundreds and thousands of fans. But this hasn’t turned him into an attention seeking freak unlike several celebs in Hollywood. The fame has made him more focused and concerned about his family, who he thinks might be dragged into the mud by the media because of him.
He admitted that he was worried about his wife who works in the industry itself but whose identity he has tried his best to keep a secret till now. This anonymous woman is a part of the show biz, but nobody knows who she is and Sampson wants to keep it that way. He wants his children and his better half as far from the fame monster as possible. But, he fears that this long held secret might be out in the open one day and it would be difficult for the happily married couple and their children to move on.
He has an estimated net worth of $0.5 million.
