Early life, family, educational background
American model and actress Samantha Burton was born on 22 December 1991 in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Not much is known about her early or personal life – we know nothing about her family, but she was reportedly very passionate about acting from a young age. At some point in her life, she moved with her family to Tullahoma, Coffee County, Tennessee, and attended Tullahoma High School, from where she matriculated.
She attended university, although hasn’t revealed which one, only posting throwback photos of her college years, as well as a picture captioned ‘Homecoming Queen,’ making it appear as though she won Homecoming Queen at her college. She apparently gained a postgraduate degree in Psychology.
Samantha is probably best known for her role in “The Sandlot 2: The Sandlot Continues,” a very popular 2005 movie.
After appearing in just one movie, Samantha caught the attention of thousands of fans around the world. Her performances have led to her being called a rare talent. At the young age of 14, Samantha was cast in the successful sequel “The Sandlot 2: The Sandlot Continues.” The baseball comedy was produced by David Bixler and written and directed by David Mickey Evans. The movie focuses on how friendship helps people overcome many struggles in life and the consequences of choosing good or evil.
On 3 May 2005, the movie was premiered and then released to theatres and cinemas, following the successful 1993 first installment, which was a coming-of-age baseball film. The movie is set in the San Fernando Valley, California, 10 years after the first film, which was set in 1962. Most of the filming was done in and around Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah. Samantha played Hayley Goodfairer, daughter of an engineer working at NASA, portraying one of the movie’s main children who also played baseball at the sandlot, but was forced to leave after being bullied. The main characters group work as a team to defeat their mutual enemy.
Critics gave the movie mixed reviews, but the majority of audiences loved it. Samantha co-starred alongside David Mickey, Sean Berdy, and Max Lloyd-Jones – all of whom were already famous and experienced actors. Hayley was Samantha’s debut and only role in a film, but it’s widely considered to be her breakthrough, role as she was applauded for her performance despite not being as experienced and skilled as the rest of the cast and crew.
She has dabbled in some modeling, and allegedly worked for a couple of famous high-end brands.
She was an executive producer in the reality television program, “Obsessive-Compulsive Hoarder” which aired through 2011 and 2012 before ending.
Samantha reportedly dated her “The Sandlot 2: The Sandlot Continues” co-star, Max Lloyd-Jones, who portrayed David “Rocket” Durango in the film. He is a British actor born on 26 February 1991 in London, England.
Some of his other best-known roles have been in films such as “Adventures in Babysitting,” “War of the Planet of the Apes,” and “The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story.” Television series he’s appeared in include “Teen Wolf,” “Supernatural” and “Reign: The Destiny of a Queen.”
According to reports, possibly rumors, Samantha and Max dated through 2005 and ‘06 while working together, but neither has confirmed nor denied the relationship.
When having a look at Samantha’s social media, it seems that she may have been in a relationship, as there are several photographs featuring a man who is never tagged or mentioned in the captions text. Their relationship cannot be confirmed because she hasn’t mentioned that she was dating anyone, nor has she spoken about him to the public.
As far as we can tell, she has never been married and doesn’t have any children.
On 15 October 2014, she posted a photo to Instagram of herself and Patrick Charles along with the caption, ‘cannot wait to hang with this cool kid in T-minus 48 hours.’ Fans began speculating that they may be an item, and bombarded Samantha with questions and images of Patrick for so long that she stopped posting and being active as of November 2016.
Once again, Samantha has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, but her last post was on 22 June 2016, and was another photo of herself and Patrick. In the caption, she mentioned that he is an excellent person to take road trips with.
In her more private life, she has a boxer-breed dog named Dalpal.
Samantha has brown hair, which she sometimes dyes blonde, blue eyes, is 5ft 6ins (1.68m) tall, and weighs 114lbs (52kgs).
Net worth and salary
According to several sources, her net worth is estimated at $300,000 as of late-2020 – her income is indeterminate, as it relies on her varied annual filming commitments.
