I find it pretty hard to believe that this actor was born in 1916. That would have made him 91 when Harry Potter and the Order of the Phonix (film), which he had a role in, was released. Plus, he looks young in that photo and it's in colour. I did some research but all I found concerning his year of birth was the Internet Movie Database, which also said he was born in 1916. Can any one else find his real year of birth? --Margiechocoholic 12:17, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

In the OotP film, Sam Beazley portrayed the portrait of former Headmaster Everard, and he appeared to be an elderly man. The person in File:Sam_Beazley_1.jpg is probably someone else with the name Sam Beazley (this youth pastor, perhaps?). Starstuff (Owl me!) 14:46, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
I can assure you that Sam was indeed born in 1916. I know this because he is my uncle!

I lived next door to Sam in Clapham and can confirm his date of birth is correct as it was the same month and year as my father.  I am so pleased that he continues to work and am amazed that he looks only slightly more aged than when I last saw him in 1997.14:02, January 11, 2013 (UTC)
