In the wake of Sam Cookes death, Sam Cook, the star of the beloved Netflix series The Crown and the BBC comedy The Crown, has been sharing her thoughts on his passing.
Sam Cook died on Monday, the day after she posted a video to Instagram about how she has “lost count of the number of times I have cried on his face”.
In the video, Sam tells a story of how she was watching the new series of The Crown when she saw Cooke and her friends standing together in a small room in a darkened studio.
She says they were all sitting on a table, with a microphone and cameras.
“They’re all together.
They’re all doing this,” Sam says.
“I saw him.
I felt something.
“Then I was sitting there in the corner crying,” she says. “
Sam describes Cooke as an incredibly funny and smart guy. “
Then I was sitting there in the corner crying,” she says.
Sam describes Cooke as an incredibly funny and smart guy.
“He was like the most funny person I’ve ever met,” Sam said.
“But he had these other things too, I think.
His wife was his first wife.
He was married for 25 years.
He really was. “
Sam has lost count of all the times I’ve cried on the faces of other people.
He really was.
And I think it was because I was so emotionally exhausted and so drained of all that energy and all that emotion and all those things, and so emotionally fragile and so, so broken emotionally, that I didn’t feel very human.”
In the post, Sam describes her reaction to the news of her husband’s death, telling viewers, “The worst thing I’ve experienced in my life was that moment when he said he loved me.
My soul was shattered. “
My soul was broken.
My soul was shattered.
I couldn’t cry.
I will never let you down. “
So the only way to find solace is to make the world better.
I will never let you down.
I’ve tried so hard.
I’m not going to let you get away with anything.”
Sam says she will continue to share stories of her own.
“There’s always a message for us to share, and a message from Sam that is always going to come back,” she said.
