His Royal Highness, Prince Sam Rockwell, was born in San Mateo, California on November 5th, 1968. A scion of two illustrious actors, his parents were Pete Rockwell and Penny Hess. At two years of age, the family migrated to New York City and the Prince spent his formative years split between the Bronx and Manhattan. When he was five, his parents parted ways and the Prince and his father moved to San Francisco, though he still spent summers and other holidays with his mother in New York.
At the tender age of ten, the Prince made his first acting debut alongside his mother. He subsequently attended J. Eugene McAteer High School and enrolled in their SOTA program. Here, he obtained his first breakthrough role in the independent film Clownhouse (1989). His Royal Highness played the eldest of the three brothers in the movie, which revolved around three escaped mental
patients disguised as clowns. His next big break was a supporting role in the romantic comedy, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005).
The Prince has since gone on to star in over fifty films and television shows, earning himself numerous awards and accolades. He is a true testament to the power of hard work and dedication.
