Samantha Colburn is an award-winning performer who grew up in South Dakota and has been on stage since the age of four. From her beginnings in music and dance it was a very small leap to acting in musical theater in such roles as Maria in The Sound of Music and being a finalist at the National Forensic League’s National Speech Tournament in 2000.
Samantha went on to receive degrees in acting, music, and journalism from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, where she won best actress awards two years in a row and starred in roles such as Janet in The Rocky Horror Show and Gwendolyn in The Importance of Being Earnest.
Throughout her career she has performed on stages in New York City, Chicago, Orlando, and Minneapolis just to name a few. Since moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career in film, she has starred in many short films and features including Cessation with the talented Dennis Haysbert, which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008 and Out of Nowhere which recently screened at the South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival and is running the 2010 festival circuit. More recently, she was appearing opposite Hugh Laurie on this season of House as Dr. Marta Torrez.
