There’s just something about movies that is immensely fascinating for Sam Samarita. Aside from acting, this Blue Eagle is also eager to work on the other side of the camera. Sam has been fortunate enough to be an intern under the supervision of accomplished directors Antoinette Jadaone and Dan Villegas, which for her, has been extremely helpful in terms of learning more about the industry she wants to pursue. “Film production is very interesting for me because I don’t only get to learn about the ins and outs of making a film, but I also get to meet some of the most respected people in the industry and learn from them about what it takes to become a great actor and filmmaker,” She shares.
