Samantha first hit the scene in the BBC talent show I’d Do Anything in 2008, and went on to play Éponine in the West End, which she reprised in the 2012 Oscar-winning movie of the same name.

In 2019, she was cast as Elsa in the West End production of Frozen but the coronavirus pandemic has caused the musical’s opening to be postponed.

Bookings were recently halted and those who had already bought tickets to see the show in April or May have had them moved to an as-yet confirmed later date.
