Sam Groom (born June 13, 1938) is an actor most noted for his numerous roles on television. He portrayed the title role in the Canadian television series Dr. Simon Locke (1971), later renamed Police Surgeon. Prior to that, he had played Dr. Russ Matthews in the daytime soap opera Another World (1966-1971). He also played Hal Sterling, the father of a castaway family, on a little-known 1980s science fiction television series Otherworld. During the 1980s, Groom also was a spokesperson for American Motors, appearing in many commercials for the popular AMC Concord and AMC Eagle model lineups. He later played Joseph Orsini in the soap opera All My Children in 1993.

Groom made guest appearances in Law & Order, Murder, She Wrote, The Love Boat, Hill Street Blues, Quincy M.E., Gunsmoke, The Feather and Father Gang, and The Time Tunnel as the inspiring young scientist named Jerry. In 1976, he appeared both in an episode of Sara and in Territorial Men, a television movie version of the series.

Groom has a daughter, Karen, born in 1961. He has three children from his first marriage to Kathleen Sullivan (1962 - 1974), Samuel (born in 1962), Patrick (born in 1964), and Christopher (born in 1966). Groom married actress Suzanne Rogers in 1980. They divorced in 1982. He currently teaches acting at HB Studio in New York City.
