Legendary Oscar-nominated actor Robert Forster invited Sam to his favourite breakfast spot for a wide ranging chat about his life and career. Back to his early days growing up in freezing cold Rochester, getting his first role on a John Huston film starring Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor, and all the way to his incredible work with Quentin Tarantino on ‘Jackie Brown’.
Forster, a consumate storyteller, shares stories of marrying his wife after only five dates, having a life epiphany while running a marathon, and walking into his first film audition without any fear. Plus, advice on the best way to wash dishes and change diapers.
