"I'm prepared for that," he admitted, noting that while dying he would be "annoying" because he believes there is still more left for him to do, he is "not remotely afraid" of death.

One thing that does bring panic to the Peaky Blinders alum? Retirement, as he said that "fills me with horror." Luckily, he doesn't have to think about that yet as he'll soon appear in the Peacock limited series Apples Never Fall.

"I started to think I better write some of this down because I'm not sure how long I have to live," he explained. "I was running against the clock."

Looking back on the months after his diagnosis, Sam recalled, "I had some very lonely times last year. I thought it would be great for them to have some of my stories. I mightn't be here in a month or two. We 'I'll leave something for them.'
