Abbey, the dog that played “Sam” and co-starred with Will Smith in the apocalyptic zombie sci-fi action thriller ‘I Am Legend,’ is right now 13 years of ages! It has been 10 years because the blockbuster movie hit movie theaters, and Abbey is still doing fantastic!
She is presently living with her trainer, Steve Berens, and his family.
” She’s older now and she doesn’t listen to hardly anything. But she’s still kicking, she still likes a ball and likes a bone,” said Steve.
” When you work with a lot of actors, they’re not that thinking about the animal– a lot of stars look at it as something that the audience is going to be looking at instead of them. However Will was not at all like that. He understood that this was his co-star, and he really dug it and really got into it. I think that she really liked him, and that made a difference.”
When Will Smith was a child, he lost his family pet to an automobile crash and promised he would certainly never ever own another canine because of his grief. But Abbey changed that, and he also asked Steve Berens if he can keep her!
” I was begging him. I was like, please let me have Abbey. Please, please, please let me have her. But you understand, she has her very own family now, so it was simply another one of those fleeting Hollywood love.”
