To say Samuel Johnson’s life has been a rollercoaster would be an understatement, and the drama isn't just on TV.
Deeply humble Samuel took to Facebook to rant about his sisters using the Facebook page for their charity Love Your Sister to campaign for the actor to win a Logie. They apparently arranged for him to go away for a weekend with a mate so they could encourage fans to vote for their much-loved brother, who has done so much to raise awareness and donations for the amazing charity.
‘I had very solid reasons for not mentioning the Logie thing to you guys and I’m wishing I had have explained it to my sisters better before I went on a ‘fishing trip’ with my best mate who I thought would never dog me,’ Samuel wrote.
‘We share our family in the hope that it will encourage other mums to be proactive about their health ... But most importantly, we try to encourage action by taking action ourselves.
‘A whopping 12,498 villagers have reached for their wallets in the last two weeks (volume that we’ve never come close to before) to help Connie’s Big Heart Project — her world record attempt to assemble the longest line of coins in the shape of a big love heart, this coming Valentine’s Day.
‘So, right in the middle of the hectickest (sic), most successful period Love Your Sister has EVER experienced my two bonehead sisters decided to shift ALL of that momentum towards TV Week. So that we can win a shiny trophy. Are you starting to see it from my perspective yet?’
While the siblings obviously love each other very much, and Sam does appreciate the love behind his sisters' gesture, it seems they're not on the same page with this matter. Sam admits he would be very humbled to win a Logie, but he strongly feels the charity must stay centre stage.
We hope that Love Your Sister continues to excel at its vital work, AND this amazing actor is rewarded for his great work! Two good things can happen at once!
