The video showed Sam and his grandma joined by his mom, actress Finty Williams, for an adorable family dance at Dench's beautiful garden. 

Sam and his mom were on a visit to his octogenarian grandma, and he made sure it was a memorable one with the Laxed Siren Beat dance that was well done, with the trio looking well synchronized. He captioned the video thus

"When Bojo lets you film a family TikTok #fyp #fy #foryou #mother #grandmother #viral #dance." 


Apart from Sam gaining massive popularity because of his and Dench's videos, he is also famous for his striking resemblance to award-winning singer, Ed Sheeran. 

Some fans who commented on the video post pointed out Sam's resemblance with the red-haired singer, with one fan saying it was "Ed and Judi" performing. Other fans also commended Dench and her family for making their day with the video. 

Dench also revealed that Ed Sheeran asked Sam to be his stunt double. However, Sam, who works at a casting agency, declined the offer.


Dame Judi Dench once revealed a story of how her Sam was stopped by passersby who wanted a picture with him, thinking he was Ed Sheeran. The singer eventually heard the story through a showbiz agent. 

Sheeran told Sam that he heard that he  looked a lot like Sam, a gesture that made Dench declare that she lost her heart to the singer over that. 


Dench also revealed that Ed Sheeran asked Sam to be his stunt double. However, Sam, who works at a casting agency, declined the offer. One dance that many of Dame Judi Dench's fans will fondly remember her and her son performing was uploaded on TikTok back in April.

In the video, Sam was in his bedroom, with his grandma appearing on his iPad, which was on the right-hand corner of the screen. The cute pair first danced to Player's "Baby Come Back."

Soon after, they synchronized perfectly while a different version of the song played. Judi Dench looked marvelous throughout the video, earning rave reviews from fans in the now-viral video.
