Media Portrayals[]

The Baby-Sitters Club (Netflix series)[]

Sam is played by actor Dylan Kingwell. In this adaptation, he has dark brown hair and hazel eyes, and seems to be a mix of both his older brother, Charlie, and his younger sister, Kristy. Despite Kristy having been the most affected by their father's abandonment as of Season 1, it is shown in Season 2 that Sam has a very big grudge against the man. He is the only Thomas sibling that doesn't want to meet his father when given the opportunity. This a contrast to his book counterpart who did want to see his dad in Kristy's Big News.
