Sam was recently dubbed Man of the Year at the 2014 GLAMOUR Awards.

And the humble actor says he didn’t anticipate receiving all this praise.

“It was a tad unexpected, to say the least, but i feel very honored,” he said. “I’ll continue to do what I’m doing so as not to let you down! I feel truly privileged to have my name along all the previous winners. Thank you very much.”

And although Sam stars in one of the most popular fantasy series in the world, the star prefers a different kind of genre when he’s having a movie night.
