Samantha SmedleyActor

Samantha is an Actress/Producer raised in Northern VA currently conquering NYC’s Film and Television market. Shortly after graduating with a Theater degree from The Catholic University of America, in Washington DC, she made her film debut in Meg Ryan’s World War II feature film “Ithaca”, in which Samantha shared a lovely yet comedic kiss with actor Hamish Linklater. During her time at CUA, she had the honor of working with various notable DC theater artistic teams and directors. She has since trained at The People’s Improv Theater, The Stella Adler Studio For Film & Theater, The Barrow Group Theater Co. & School and most recently at The T. Schreiber Studio for Film & Theater under the close direction of acclaimed film director Peter Miner.
You can find her in NE local/regional commercials, leading in various indie shorts and feature films, online series, Network television documentaries as well as in a trending Japanese music video, which is just as quirky and colorful as she is. Samantha has produced and starred in 2 Seasons of the award winning and Manhattan Film Festival nominated sitcom series “Nobodies of NY”. She continues to be a well-rounded artistic collaborator, working to approach each role with honest captivating choices, a sense of spontaneity and emotional nuance.
She may be a city gal but when she isn’t performing she loves to escape the iron jungle for a long hiking or camping trip, her favorite go-to destination being Arizona. You can find her photographing her latest road trip, popping in a classic Audrey Hepburn film, work shopping new stories with her production company “Jane’s Girls Media” or binge watching some of her favorite 90’s sitcoms.
