Sam Edwards

Sam Edwards made his debut as an infant in the play Tess of the Storm Country in the arms of his mother, actress Edna Park. When he got older, he became part of the "family business" and worked on radio in the 1930s and 1940s. In 1937, Sam, his parents and siblings (one brother and one sister) formed the cast of The Edwards Family, a radio series in which they played themselves. The show ended in 1942 when Sam was drafted. During his 3 years with the U.S. Army, he entertained troops in Africa, Europe and Asia.

In his career, he made over 100 appearances in film on television, including providing the voice of Thumper in the Disney classic Bambi.
