Sami Gayle is a Hollywood actress who became famous after appearing in Blue Blood, a TV series that ran from 2010 to 2019.
Sami Gayle was born in Weston, Florida on 22 January 1996. Her father Larry Klitzman is a lawyer, and her mother is a businesswoman named Robyn. After Sami decided to become an actress, her mom went on to be her manager. Young actress didn’t go to a regular school, she was homeschooled and later got Advanced Placement, also known as AP in all subjects. She is currently a student at Columbia University.
She was also participating in Forum Debate where she achieved top debaters nationally.
In an interview with Anthem magazine, Sami talked about her time as an aspiring actress and how she balances her school in between that. “School isn’t optional to me. It’s something that has to get done. I’ve been taking AP classes since I was a freshman in high school. It’s very important. I’m definitely planning on going to college. I have a tutor on set. I’m studying in a virtual school through the Florida school system, so I have teachers available to me 12 hours a day. I make it work. I’m very driven with school. I can sit from 7 in the morning to 10 at night one day and just get all the school work done for the week if I know I have other obligations like this interview. I was doing homework last night until 10 at night! I think this movie shows how important it is to be well-educated and to have strong parental influence, which, fortunately enough, I do have.”
Sami Gayle began her career as Baby June in the off-Broadway production of the Gypsy, which had Patti LuPone as the main actor. The young actress mentioned how her brother, who doesn’t even go to the theater, saw the advertisement for the revival of the musical and said to Sami how she should try to audition. Sami went, and amongst thousands of children, she was selected to play. Sami appeared in two more plays, Oohrah! And How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical. Furthermore, the actress appeared in Jonathan Demme’s first play, which was called Family Week.
We witnessed Sami for the first time on the big screen when she played Hayden Lawson in a soap opera from 2009 called As The World Turns. Her most famous role so far came after appearing in the soap opera. In 2009 she got the part of Nicky Boyle, who is the granddaughter of Tom Selleck’s character on the show. That TV series is called Blue Blood, and Sami is in the show since it first started.
In addition to theater and TV shows, Sami also appeared in movies. Her first movie role was in 2011 Detachment, and she got the part of Erica, a young prostitute. She managed to get the spotlight even though she appeared alongside some big Hollywood names, like Adrien Brody, Bryan Cranston, Lucy Liu… In an interview with Anthem magazine, the young actress recalled her audition for the movie. “I went to an audition for a commercial that Tony [Kaye] was directing and he gave me the script for Detachment there. He said, “Don’t worry. You’re not playing the prostitute.” [laughs] So he had me thinking that I was going to play the part of Meredith. At one point I was like, “Tony, I love the script, but Meredith doesn’t seem like someone that looks like me.” Then Tony said, “Oh, don’t worry. You’re going to be playing Erica.” I was like, “What?!” I was supposed to be gung ho about playing a prostitute? [laughs] He put me in front of the camera and told me to say something, and I did. Tony then said, “We’re not going to find anyone better. You’re hired!” It was definitely a difficult decision to make.” In the later years she managed to land some even more significant roles like Alison Loeb in Stolen, which had Nicholas Cage as the main protagonist. Sami Gayle also played in 2014 Vampire Academy and 2018 Candy Jar.
