Bio

Samaire (pronounced Sa-mee-ra) Armstrong is an American actress best known for her television roles as Emily on Entourage (2004-2005), as Anna Stern on The O.C. (2003-2006), and as Juliet Darling in Dirty Sexy Money, from 2007-2009.

From the time she could first express herself, Samaire Armstrong knew what she wanted to do with her life, and she is well on her way to letting the world know exactly that.

In 2006 she appeared in the film It's A Boy Girl Thing, for Elton John's production company, Rocket Pictures, staring as Nell, the cute, smart girl, who switches bodies with her rival.

In 2007 she led the Independent feature Around June, playing a young woman living with her abusive yet adored father. She also appeared in the film Rise.

Armstrong appeared opposite Treat Williams in the Lifetime movie The Staircase Murders, and starred in Rise: Blood Hunter from Mandate Pictures alongside Lucy Liu, Michael Chiklis, Carla Gugino and James D'Arcy.

Other film credits include the thriller Stay Alive and the Fox feature Just My Luck, opposite Lindsay Lohan.

Armstrong is well known for her portrayal of Emily on HBO's Entourage and as Anna on Fox's The O.C. In 2004 Entertainment Weekly named her as a Breakthrough Artist of the Year for her work on both shows.

Other television roles include Freaks and Geeks, Judging Amy, Party of Five, That's Life, ER, CSI, Living with Fran and a pivotal role in a particularly creepy episode of the X-Files.

Born in Japan, Armstrong's mother still has the video of her at three years old saying that she wanted to be an actress. Although she didn't pursue it professionally until a few years ago, she spent her high school and college years performing in various stage productions, including The Miracle Worker, The Hobbit, A Chance Meeting and Impromptu.

It was in Japan that a five-year-old Armstrong was trained in the martial arts of sword training and judo, and although she hasn't been called on to use her expert skills yet, she still practices weekly.

When not busy working, Armstrong spends some of her spare time designing a line of clothing, NARU, which has been featured in magazines like Vogue, Elle, W, Cosmogirl and InStyle, and is currently being sold in small boutiques in Los Angeles.

Currently Armstrong resides in Los Angeles.
