Samantha Win recently joined host Elias in the cave! You recently saw Samantha as Chambers in Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead. We talk about how Samantha got into acting, stunts, her role in the movie & more!
Samantha was born in Barrie, Ontario, Canada and at age 11, Samantha dipped her toe into the industry after winning “Child of the Year” at the Model and Talent Search Canada in 2002. From here, she studied at the Toronto Academy of Acting and appeared in numerous commercials and on several print ads for companies like Sears and The May Company. She also took up a new Martial Art called “Wushu” (at Sunny Tang Martial Arts) which is a performance-based style most recognizable as the style that Jet-Li practices. Knowing that it would only help her career in the performing arts, she moved to Richmond Hill, dedicated her life to the sport and went on the become a member of the National Wushu Team representing Canada at various international competitions. She is a double Gold-medalist in the 2006 and 2008 Pan-American Wushu Championships, Bronze medalist in the 2007 World Wushu Championships and even went on to compete in the 2008 Olympic Exhibition Wushu Event in Beijing as part of Team Canada.
It is after her Wushu feat that she got her first introductions into the Hollywood industry. By age 18 and with a filmography that already included Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Sucker Punch (in which she stunt-doubled Jena Malone), Samantha moved to Los Angeles to further pursue her acting career. It is here that she landed the breakout role of “Kitana” in the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web-series as well as “Car-vex” in the superhero blockbuster: Man of Steel.
