Samantha Wynn is an actor, singer, and voice over artist who applies as much thought, passion, and preparation to her performances as a painter applies to a great work of art. A versatile performing artist, her talents range from powerful singer and cabaret performer to voice over artist.

Originally from Santa Cruz, California, Samantha began her training at the University of San Francisco. After her second year, she was invited to enroll in the American Conservatory Theater's Summer Training Program. There she realized the acting profession was what she wanted to pursue. With her new found career, goals, and determination, she transferred to Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, where she earned her B.F.A. in Musical Theater.

After college, Samantha began touring with various children's theaters and enjoyed the opportunity to give back to children less fortunate than herself. "If for one hour I could change that child's life, then I did my job." That became her mantra.

Samantha spent a season at the Growing Stage Theater Company where she performed in every show and was one of three actors invited to be a teaching artist in residence. "What made the Growing Stage so special was when the children in the audience started to recognize me. It was great to be a 'local' celebrity."

While in Los Angeles, Samantha performed in one of her favorite shows, Ruthless! The Musical at Saddleback Civic Light Opera. "We were fortunate to work with Lindsay Ridgeway who starred in the production at the Canon Theatre and we were privy to the Bob Mackie costumes. It was an amazing experience."

As a result of Samantha's past costume character experience, she was offered the opportunity to work on a television pilot, Barnyard Place, appearing as "Louie - the Pig"

Recently, Samantha appeared Off-Broadway in The View From K Street Steak as "Al-The Dummy." Once again, Samantha proved to herself that she could embody the development of her character while spending the majority of the performance on stage.

When Samantha portrays a character, she not only learns the role, but also thinks about the unique, finishing touches she will add. "I find satisfaction in knowing 'the work' has been done. The costumes and make-up give me a sense of completion for each role I perform."

Another highlight from Samantha's career was performing in Fiddler on the Roof at Actors' Playhouse, nominated for nine Carbonell Awards. Playing the dual role "Fruma-Sarah" allowed Samantha to rise to the challenge of quickly transforming herself from a "Villager" to "Fruma" in less than fifteen minutes. "My character was never finished until I applied the last bit of color to my face. Getting into my costume, climbing the ladder to sit on someone's shoulders, and hearing my musical entrance always made my heart race with excitement. Although it was only a two-minute cameo role, it brought me so much pleasure."

Being one with her character will always be evident in Samantha's work.
