Solomon Trimble In His Own Words

We are very fortunate to have Solomon Trimble, Sam Uley, grant us his first major interview.  There is no doubt about it, he IS Sam!  Without question that he has a bright future ahead of him.

Thank you to Cocoa for acting as our reporter, and a HUGE thank you to Solomon for giving us the privilege of conveying his words and feeling to the Twilight fans.  You can discuss Solomon’s fantastic answers over at the message boards.

Some select quotes are here:

"Family always came first; I just want to give back to them for being so supportive of me…."

"I’ve always been interested in acting; my background is in stage acting and dance…."

"I don’t think Sam carried the burden of a secret; the fact that he said anything makes it clear that he’s more interested in protecting his people…"

    We got to get to know the true him here!!!

    It is OBVIOUS that he understood Sam’s character COMPLETLY,wich will make him PERFECT for the role.and he sounded very dedicated to do the best job he can for the role!
    I got very excited when he mentioned that he didn’t think it was going to be just another Sappy Teen Love Story and that he believes Catherine wants to give the movie the Depth and Realism Stephenie Meyer Intended!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THAT couldn’t have pleased me more!!!I am glad he added that in!
    I know you will bw the PERFECT SAM!!!

  37. jo schmoe says:


  38. That was a really good interview, I learned SO MUCH! Not to mention, he practically seems like a Sam already with his background… Almost creepy…

  39. That was a fantastic interview. You had some great questions and I was really impressed, but I always am with the twilight lexicon!!!

    thank you for the wonderful break from my day

    Thanks Sam…. you really are kind to humor us, but we love it and we are that much more in love with the movie and your role…

  40. Wow!! This guy will make a great Sam!!
    Thank you Cocoa for the awesome interview!!!

  41. He’s perfect as Sam U. and perfect for me. He’s ambtious,intelligent,kind,and single. I am inlove. There I said it. I said what everyone here was thinking. πŸ˜‰

  42. What a cutie! I love how he’s so proud of his culture and shows great admiration in the character he’s playing… no doubt he’ll make a fabulous Sam.

    I’m not sure if it’s been said, but has anyone seen a youtube video with a song about Twilight? It’s really nice and here’s the link

    I’m not a registered user, so I don’t think I could’ve posted it on the boards.

  43. Wow he’ll be a perfect Sam…I hope there’s another movie so we can see more of him..oh and the New pic is Awesome! Great Job Lexicon!

  44. He’s going to be awesome! serious,dedicated,smart,loyal great qualities for a sam.:) best of luck Solomon!

  45. I´ve loved all your interviews but especially this one and Edi Gathegi´s.

    Questions off the beaten track! They offer us more about the person, not just the performer. Please keep this trend! It certainly sets you apart from other fan sites :).

  46. he seems very cool, i like his book recommendations and i LOVE that he’s into metallica! i always pictured the pack being into metallica, i hope in the movie they bring that element out, it would be perfect in the confrontation with the vampires…FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE SAM! er…soloman!!!

  47. La tua Cantante says:

    That would be really GREAT!!! I agree!!! It would be good used for confrontation with the vampires,well it would be even better in Eclipse especially.
    I can see it now! The wolves seem like the Metallica type
    completly!!! ha ha..thats funny!

  48. blackskies says:

    haha. they always end with ‘are you single?’

  49. Hellish Red Devil says:

    He’s gonna be great. πŸ˜€

  50. Sam Uley seems very dedicated to the role.
