Samantha Stewart was born and raised a Southern girl, spending most of her childhood in Nashville, TN. She acted and modeled locally there, until breaking away at 17 to chase her dreams in Los Angeles. She graduated from Pepperdine University in 2 1/2 years, with a B.A. in Theatre. Since then she has appeared in TV, film, and theatre around LA, and looks forward to thanking her dog, and wearing purple when she wins her first Oscar.
