An American actress of Irish and Trinidadian descent. Samantha convinced her mother to move to Manhattan at the age of 10 to pursue her love of acting. A triple-threat, Samantha immediately began booking national commercials, as well as live vocal, dance, and theatre performances. She attended the Professional Performing Arts (middle) School for musical theater, then LaGuardia Arts ("Fame") high school as a drama major. Her first big break came at 14, starring in ABC's 666 Park Avenue as young clairvoyant Nona Clark. Samantha is active with several local charities, including 5acres and IVHQ where she volunteers internationally.Description above from the Wikipedia article, licensed under CC-BY-SA, full list of contributors on Wikipedia.
