Originally from St. Louis, Samantha moved to NYC to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for Acting. She also had the pleasure to train with Mark Rylance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre [UK] & at Circle in the Square [NY].
She just wrapped filming THE WOMAN FROM HAMBURG, and you can catch her as Naomi on Showtime's BILLIONS [Season 6] & in TROY [Tribeca Film Festival 2022, Sundance 2023]. Other recent credits include the super scary THEM [Amazon] & MONSTERLAND [Hulu], & the film, ADAM [streaming on mult platforms] which is not super scary... unless controversy frightens you.
She's currently in solidarity with WGA strike, but will resume development on an under wraps TV series & a film once resolved.

SHE'S ALSO A PASSIONATE ACTIVIST.
As President of Women to the Front she’s helped raise almost $100K for 8 different orgs so far- including the last abortion clinic in Kentucky & the incredible repro-justice org: Indigenous Women Rising. WTTF just wrapped up their most recent fundraiser for Higher Heights, a terrific org solely committed to electing progressive Black women to office.
As a founder on NARAL'S Action Council, she’s worked tirelessly to protect & expand reproductive rights.
And as a clinic escort in NY & LA, she puts her body on the line to help ensure those seeking abortion care [healthcare] have the access they need.
Samantha fights for civil rights, intersectional feminism, & hopefully a better world.
