Samantha Bee is an American actress who currently has established a successful acting career in both the Tamil and Telugu film industries. She has also established a slew of accolades including several Filmfare Awards, seven Film Farewell Awards, two Nanda Awards, and two CineMAA Awards for her various roles in films. Most of her early roles were characterised in Tamil films where she displayed the exquisite blend of physicality and sexuality that are so common of Asian actresses. Recently however Samantha has moved into Hollywood where she can be seen alongside some of the best Hollywood celebrities.
However, there was a period when Sammi was considered a bit of a risk because of her hulking physique which made people think of her as a bad girl. However, her physique has given way to grace and femininity which have enabled her to acquire great roles opposite Aishwarya Rai and empathised roles. Her biggest break however was the role of Nurse Ratnaraj in Sony’s Chennai Express which catapulted her to stardom.

Before we move on, it is worth noting that Sammamish is not your run-of-the-mill leading lady. Samantha is without a doubt an outstanding actress and the epitome of a real woman. She has a flawless skin and an effortless beauty that have endeared her to a number of viewers. She has the kind of face that everyone loves to stare at – and it is certainly not an easy act to portray in movies.
The kind of innocence and purity that Samantha possesses makes many with her. Also, she displays the kind of strength of character that many actresses are known for having. She is strong enough to overcome the hardships that come her way while showing a degree of resilience that every other female actor should be admired for.
The maturity and poise that Samantha shows on the silver screen make many wonder whether she might be eligible for another feature film after her stint in Chennai Express. However, many producers are so confident of Samantha’s ability that they have given her another chance to prove herself. Apart from Chennai, there are several other Hindi movies that are in the pipeline. Most of them are directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is widely acclaimed for his films including Invictus and Baahubali.
Apart from these films, Samantha has also acted in some Hollywood films like Money For Nothing and E.T. She has appeared in episodes of CSI, Frasier, The Firm and House Rules. Samantha is not too sure whether she will be given another chance to feature in Bollywood but she is definitely enjoying her time in Hollywood. In fact, she has even started her own venture – an infomercial – where she promotes natural skin care products. This is seen as a great opportunity for her to not only test herself but also learn from the success of her co-actors.
