Hello everyone, and welcome to the grand opening of Samara Weaving Heaven – Your first source dedicated to the beautiful and talented actress Samara Weaving! After weeks of hard work, the site is finally ready to be shared with fellow fans across the world. There’s still a lot of work left to be done, but the site is already quite extensive: we have a large photo gallery with photos and screen captures from all of Samara’s projects, a large collection of high quality events and photoshoots, a complete career archive with information and media on all of Samara’s films and TV series, an in-depth biography and information pages and a lot more! Have fun browsing the site, and make sure to follow us on twitter if you want to stay updated on the site as well as Samara.
This site would never have been able to launch if it weren’t for great help and support from my friends. First I’d like to give a big thank you to my friends Elise and Nicole, for helping me with the layout customization! And also a big shout out to my other friends Neide and Jay, for helping me out with photos and encouragement. I hope you’ll enjoy the site, and feel free to comment with your thoughts, suggestions or potential problems! – Sara
Yesterday (March 04), Samara and her “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” co-stars attended the 90th Annual Academy Awards! The awards were held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and is the most anticipated night of the award season. Samara looked incredible in a gorgeous dress by Schiaparelli, and has received several mentions as one of the best dressed of the evening! Our gallery has been updated with several gorgeous photos of Sam at the red carpet.
Three Billboards was nominated for a total of 7 awards – Best Actress (Frances McDormand – WON), Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell – WON), Best Supporting Actor (Woody Harrelson), Best Picture (went to “The Shape of Water”), Best Original Music Score (Carter Burwell – went to Alexandre Desplat for “The Shape of Water”), Best Original Screenplay (Martin McDonagh – went to Jordan Peele for “Get Out”) and Best Film Editing (Jon Gregory – went to Lee Smith for “Dunkirk”). Big congratulations to all winners, and a special congrats to Samara’s co-stars Frances and Sam!
As written in our previous post, Samara is the covergirl of Qantas Magazine‘s QStyle issue this month. Following the beautiful photoshoot outtakes added yesterday, I have now added high quality digital scans of the spread to our gallery! I have also typed up the article, which you can read below. Samara discusses rising to fame, the hardest parts of being an actress, her hometown Sydney and her current hometown Los Angeles.
Samara Weaving is the type of person who’d bristle at the word “journey”. But if anyone’s been on one, it’s her. The 26-year-old niece of acclaimed Australian actor Hugo Weaving was born in Adelaide and raised all over Asia and Europe by her academic parents before spending four years on the fictional streets of Home and Away’s Summer Bay (like Isla Fisher and Chris Hemsworth before her). Since then she’s ping-ponged between Australia and the United States, officially relocating to Los Angeles after landing the lead role (of a murderous babysitter) in Netflix’s 2017 horror-comedy smash The Babysitter.A buzz has trailed Weaving ever since,growing louder after her small but memorable part in the awards-season steamroller Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,Missouri opposite Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell. Then there was her on-point portrayal of an irritatingly perfect girlfriend in the breakout hit SMILF (the second season is currently in production), a raw and honest dramedy about a twenty something single mum. Later this year, Weaving will star as ill-fated schoolgirl Irma Leopold in the television adaptation of Australian classic Picnic at Hanging Rock alongside Game of Thrones alum Natalie Dormer – a series so hotly anticipated that it sparked a network bidding war in the US. On an increasingly rare visit home, Weaving took time out to dress up and talk shop.
You’ve become very visible very quickly…
Once I’d booked The Babysitter– which was on The Black List [a list of the most hyped but as-yet-unproduced scripts in Hollywood] for years – it felt like I finally had my foot in the door. I’ve been in the industry for 10 years and not having to jump through as many hoops when it comes to auditions is really refreshing.
