Twenty year old Sammi Hanratty has been acting for more than half her life. She's had the pleasure of working with some of Hollywood's biggest names including Academy Award winning director Robert Zemeckis, Simon West, Barry Sonnenfeld, Jim Carrey, Robin Wright, Gary Oldman, Cary Elwes, Ray Liotta, Cuba Gooding Jr, Jon Hamm, and Tim Allen.
Sammi continues to be in high demand. Her newest film Bad Kids of Crestview Academy is based on the best-selling comic book series “Bad Kids Go 2 Hell.” In it, she plays the main character, Siouxsie, who is trying to avenge her sister’s murder. It has been a busy last few years for Sammi. She wrapped principal production on three feature films, playing Patricia Heaton's daughter in the Sony film Mom's Night Out, the main character in the indie film Zoe Gone, and recently, she starred alongside Olympia Dukakis and Nicolette Sheridan in The Christmas Spirit. In addition to the big screen, Sammi's extensive television credits include guest starring on AMC's award-winning series Mad Men, David E. Kelley's series Monday Mornings, working with director Simon West on The Saint, and starring in three concurrent recurring roles on CBS's The Unit, ABC's Pushing Daisies, and Disney's The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Sammi's more recent television credits include Seasons 1 and 2 on WGN's hit series Salem costarring Janet Montgomery and Shane West, as well as guest starring on ABC's How To Get Away With Murder, TNT's Perception, AMC's Madmen, and CBS' Two Broke Girls, and Stalker. In addition, she can be seen as a series regular in season 3 of the Sony/Crackle original series CH:OS:EN.
In her spare time, Sammi loves spending time with family and friends as well as giving back to children's charities. She recently went to remote areas of Mexico with her favorite charity, Smile Train.
