Hi! Hello! Bonjour!
I’m Samia – pronounced (‘sahm-ya) – French and NYC-based actor and singer.
After being trained in Musical Theatre in Paris and singing in Gospel & soul choirs, I moved to the Big Apple to diversify and further my training in acting techniques at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting.
Here, I fell in love all over again with Shakespeare. I met wonderful artists and teachers with whom I got to experience fascinating movement-based techniques, like Lucid Body Suzuki and Viewpoints, which added up to my love for dance. I discovered the thrill of working on other media with on-camera and film work. I’m challenged every day to jump out of my comfort zone, fail big if I fail and always, always learn.
I’m thrilled by the amount, diversity, versatility of projects that New York City has to offer and extremely grateful for all the opportunities and artistic encounters coming my way.
Acting is a way for me to explore multiple facets of humanity, express my creativity and to enjoy the exhilaration of constantly doing something new and spontaneous.
Every day spent here and acting, I learn and I grow. How lucky are we, actors, to get to be ourselves and step into somebody else’s shoes !
