Gunnar Scott on ABC's "Nashville"
Raised by his artist parents in Cornwall, a small beach town outside of London, Sam Palladio stayed nearby to pursue his career as a performer, studying theatre and music at Rose Bruford Drama College where he later graduated.
After graduating, Palladio found himself showcasing his talents in the original cast for the musical "Dreamboats & Petticoats," touring the UK before bringing it into London's West End.
His television credits include his role as Stoke in Season Two and Three of the Showtime hit "Episodes," starring Matt LeBlanc. Additionally he's had appearances on the UK small screen on shows "Doctors" and "The Hour."
Palladio earned critical attention when he appeared in the 2012 television pilot "Nashville." His performance in the soulful rendition of "If I Didn't Know Better" immediately captivated audiences and ignited his music career. He performs on the soundtracks of both Season 1 and 2, which at press time had sold over 2 million individual tracks.
Last year, Palladio appeared in the film "Runner, Runner," opposite Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck and Gemma Arterton. He recently lent his voice to play the lead role of the 'Prince' in the Walt Disney/Lucas Films animated picture "Primrose," opposite Evan Rachel Wood.
Sam also performs and writes his own music. He plays the guitar, drums and piano. Sam is currently shooting season three of "Nashville."
