Here’s 5 fast facts about Samantha Autry!
She enjoys dress up with her doggo.
Although I’ve had many memorable moments, one of my favorites was when I attended a fundraising event for the Amanda Foundation, a non profit animal charity in Beverly Hills. It was called the “Night of the Living Dog” and guests were asked to dress up and bring their dogs. I dressed up as a police officer and my K9 partner was my dog. He’s a Belgian Malinois, so we definitely looked the part.
If acting doesn’t work out for her — cooking might!
Besides acting, the thing I like to do most is cooking. I find it relaxing and I enjoy trying new recipes then putting my twist on them.
She has a healthy viewpoint on friends and friendships.
I believe the biggest negative pressure these days for teens is feeling “Accepted” by people, groups, peers, social media, school, etc. The way I avoid it is by being comfortable and confident in myself and making friends with people who accept me for me. You’re not required to be friends with everyone. Not everyone is going to accept you and you have to be okay with that. Go where you’re celebrated, not tolerated.
She loves science.
People would be surprised to know that I love science. If I weren’t an actress, I would be a Microbiologist.
Everybody in L.A. wants the same superpower as she.
The super power I wish I had in real life is to be able to fly. If I could fly I could get to work faster and avoid L.A. traffic. My super power name would be “The Eagle.”
