Samaire Armstrong


Date Of Birth

October 31, 1980


Samaire Armstrong was born on October 31, 1980 in Tokyo, Japan to a Scottish father and an Italian mother. Her name is unique as it is Gaelic, as a Gaelic man corrected her parents when they pronounced it the wrong way. She lived with her family for many years in Japan, and moved to Hawaii and later, Sedona, Arizona, where she grew up. She attended the University of Arizona but later dropped out because the school drama department barred freshmen from participating in productions. After dropping out, she moved to L.A. to pursue an acting career. She broke into film acting when she was cast for the movie Not Another Teen movie. She also had a recurring role on Freaks and Geeks and guest appearances on Judging Amy, Party of Five, CSI: Miami , Numb3rs and The X-Files . She also took on short stints on music videos for Hanson's Penny and Me, and Daniel Powter's Bad Day. She is best known, however, for playing Emily on Entourage, Anna Stern on The O.C., Juliet Darling on Dirty Sexy Money and Summer Edgecombe on The Mentalist. At present, she is part of the cast of the TV series Resurrection.
