They first met on the scene of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids”. Katharine was the lead actress in that movie and later got BAFTA for it. Sam was just one of the extras and many years later he admitted that time he wasn't brave enough to talk to the main star of the film. But 9 years later fate brought them together to London, where they played in “Legacy”.

Sam and Katharine started dating and got married in 1984. For Katharine, it wasn’t the first marriage, before she walked down the aisle four times already. However, none of that relationships lasted as long as this one.
