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].
*NEW!* Catch her now as Naomi on Showtime's BILLIONS [Season 6] & in TROY [Tribeca Film Festival Premiere, Outfest 2022].
Some other current credits include the super scary THEM [Amazon] & MONSTERLAND [Hulu]. She can also be seen in the film, ADAM [streaming on multiple platforms] which is not super scary... unless controversy frightens you.
For more Theater/ TV/ Film, check out her RESUME HERE or below on actors access.
SHE'S ALSO A PASSIONATE ACTIVIST.
As President of Women to the Front she’s helped raise $86K for 7 different orgs- including the last abortion clinic in Kentucky & the incredible repro-justice org: Indigenous Women Rising. She's currently planning WTTF's 8th 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.
