Sam's Flickr photo



As is now blatantly obvious, the [purple] picture, found on flickr, that I posted before, is none other than Sam himself. Yes, his hair is much longer to the left, but the facial similarity is too large for it to be anybody else. So...how and why did Tom Killen have a picture of Sam on his flickr? Are they one and the same?

In the first picture does anyone think we should be looking at his right eye. He seems to be hinting that, as he is magnifying his other eye.
Just a thought...

PeterL said...

I have put the colour back to its original colours and there is one huge problem with it being sam, the man in the other picture clearly has Blue Eyes, Sam has brown Eyes

deneph said...

The pic is too small for me to check out the eyes.
If they are the same person, he looks so much better with short hair. Could his hair be that straight while shorter?

Juniebun said...

The lips and the chin look similar. I don't know...

Juniebun said...

This is strange, but the hair on the neck looks similar on both guys...the facial shape looks really similar, too...

doublet said...

the nose is pretty similar too...

fedegaray said...

mmm, but look the facial hair pattern. mustache dont match, eyebrows don't match.... mmm... no, its not the same person to me

PeterL said...

the picture has been updated to my one you can see it aint the same ecspecially cos of the blue eyes

Juniebun said...

Well, eye color can be changed, as we know...

The guy with the afro looks younger...

My opinion now is that it isn't the same guy...

Plus, isn't Tom Killen the one that sent Sam the picture of Sonya? We'd have some serious twin issues going on if they look identical...

i can't figure much out, but a google image search gave me this site.

KeepingAwake said...

I don't think they look much alike at all. The Flickr guy is easily ten-fifteen years younger and much heavier.

It would be interesting if we could figure out what is in the looking glass reflection on his eye and what's reflected in his other eye though.

dragossh said...

Interesting, ryan. Those two Tom surely look similar.

fedegaray said...

EY!!! HIS NAME ITS NOT "TOM" ITS "THOMAS" AS THE SURNAME OF SAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ryan said...

In downloading his resume I found his email and sent him a few questions, we'll see what comes of it.

deneph said...

Keepingawake...
It could just be an older picture of Sam they're using. He does look heavier in the flicker pic. An older pic could explain some small differences.

Goodwin said...

I do not think that the first picture is Sam...although it is similar, it is just not close enough. Brothers maybe?

sawker said...

they don't look very similar to me...does anybody know who's the actor who plays sam?i think he is rodger corser,an australian actor who also played peter johnson in mcleods daughters

Juniebun said...

Hmmm...I never made the connection...

Sam Thomas...Thomas Killen...that's a little...strange, huh???

It's almost like a younger Sam Thomas with an afro wig on...

fedegaray said...

its like Rachel Blacke and Persephone?

DarkUFO said...

Thanks Ryan, keep us posted :)

kessler27 said...

looked him up on imdb.com. definatley the same guy. look at the eyebrows!

paolovf said...

I think your right Sawker, good work.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1122123/

Juniebun said...

I keep looking at the two pictures and the lips are exactly the same...the eyebrows do look different, like someone else said...

This reminds me of the whole situation with the Jack look-a-like in the Arctic Station...

Juniebun said...

Oh, yeah...that's the same guy...the guy playing Sam Thomas is definitely that Rodger guy...if you look at the pictues at imdb.com, the one with him in the leather jacket and long hair, the face is clearly, clearly, clearly (was that clearly?) the same guy...

So cool!!!

if you click on the Site http://tom.sif90.com/folio/index.htm
COntect ME and then on Personal Website (http://tom.sif90.com) you get this

Hi there. This site isn't too active yet but you can check out my portfolio!!!

See it here!

Apologies for the poor presentation. This site will be really cool in liek 2 hours i swear!!!!1111one

maybe then we wil know if he is involved

Juniebun said...

Well, that's his face with the magnifying glass...is that picture really a part of the Sam Thomas thing? How'd it get into the mix in the first place?

bherstig said...

if you follow the first link in hevernan post, you can check out several games Thomas Killen worked on. One is Shardup hunt.Under "Physical Specifications" there is a link to ARToolKit - which shows some goggles that are eerily reminiscent of others we have seen - Room 23 anyone?

deneph said...

So, if Tom and Sam are not the same person, then Tom knows something about the flight and is trying to pass on info to Sam. How would a gamer have inside info on the boat and the Black Rock?

tonilost said...

yeah Hevernan, just saw that on lage, more to confuse the hella out me.
http://tom.sif90.com/folio/index.htm
Dark needs to update with this too.

deneph said...

That's the site! If you look at Tom's resume, how could he have inside info? Is this whole thing a game that he programmed? Or did he set something up to cover the crash? How does he know about the Black Rock?

Ryan said...

http://www.killenthomas.com.au/


Taking the Google search/name games further.......

I wouldn't think much about this except for the coincidence that it is an Australian site.

Smullie said...

So, with these 2 links, you can find the following e-mail:

Tom.Killen@gmail.com (from the resume)

But when you go to his (at the moment not very much to do there) site, there's the text:

tom@sif90.com.

I'll mail both of em, and let you know.

Jake C. said...

They don't look the same at all... the eyes are different (ok, one could use lenses)... the was the hair grows is totally different, same goes with the beard.... No, it's not him. And we have the actor above anyway.

DanaMc said...

I think it's Nathan Mayfield, from Hoodlum Digital Entertainment in Australia which RUNS ARGs. hoodlum.com.au

If you do a WhoIs for The-Maxwell-Group you find Nathan

If you go the Hoodlum site, and click on Who We Are, you'll find his photo under Nathan. Sam, Killien, and Nathan are all the same guy.

Nathan Mayfield also has a Facebook page, in case you want to befriend him.

Just my .02
All the best,
DanaMc

Juniebun said...

No, that guy Nathan is not Sam Thomas or Thomas Killen...

Juniebun said...

Maybe, Smokey was created like a video game, with a controller with a "joy stick" and then things went crazy and it runs itself at this point...
