At a young age, his singing voice had been heard by others who told him he should look further into pursuing a career in singing, which he did and it lead him to performing in two operas, however, he soon learned that he preferred acting to singing and soon started changing paths and pursuing an acting career.
2. Before the big screen, he played Shakespearean roles
It’s always impressive to have played a role in a big production, such as a Shakespearean theatrical production, which Lamb had the privilege off doing before he left theater to pursue the big screen and television productions.

Most men will tell you that to have some good height on you is a good thing and can be beneficial in many ways, however, when it comes to acting, it seems like there’s always this ‘perfection’ a director is looking for when it comes to filling the role of a character.
