Samantha Jayne Tootell


Actor / Entertainer


My Story

Thank you kindly for checking out my website!

I guess I should I introduce myself! You probably know my name is Samantha Tootell, but you can call me Sammy! Obviously I am a keen and passionate Actor/Entertainer, Based currently in Lincolnshire.

I’m 27 years young, with a full and clean driving licence and my own car for travelling where necessary!

So where did it all begin? I have always been an outgoing and bubbly child, and had a keen interest in performing and entertaining people, joining in with youth drama groups, and like most i fell in love with drama at school and chose to study it for GCSE along with BTEC Dance, and continued to study the arts at Lincoln college. Where i gained a level 2 national diploma in Performing Arts 

Luckily, I was able to jump straight into the working life as an actor, and started with children’s parties, corporate events, village festivals and even performing at Newark show, at a fantastic company called Shooting Star Parties! This gave me a fantastic base in learning key skills of how to entertain large groups of children, whilst taking on any character requested; From Princess’s to Superheros, to anything and everything desired! I cant thank Gemma enough for all of her training, I really have learnt so much working for her, of how to keep children engaged, using their imagination, keeping them focused and just giving them the best party to remember! 

In amongst the college years I spent as much time as possible with a local amateur theatre company known as the Lyndsey rural playsers, at the Broadbent theatre, Wickenby. Where Pantomimes In particular became a huge passion, I started out as any other in chorus, and went on to take lead comedy duo roles in numerous shows, this blossomed into Choreographing and eventually Directing my very own pantomime- Red riding hood! we also put on variety shows where i performed a hilarious comedy sketch with my panto side kick and best friend, and was cast in The Regina Monologues directed by the fantastic Gloria Poole! This theatre has a special place in my heart!

I certainly found my passion was in live, immersive theatre rolls. I then branched out further into more professional gigs, such as touring Pantomimes, live street theatre events, day events, and murder mystery dining events! I get such a buzz from the live audience reactions!

I then spent a year abroad where i learnt much more about entertaining adults as well as children, performing dance and comedy shows, being part of the hotels animation teams in several countries, leading the sports activities, cocktail games, activity nights, kids club…This was truly a fantastic life experience as well as gaining knowledgeable entertainment experience.

I am currently spreading my wings into the world of screen acting! With multiple student films and SA experience, TV acting classes, I feel I am now ready to get out there and venture further into the world of film and TV! So please, check out my previous work, and give me the chance to prove I can be the perfect fit for your current casting, and I promise I will NOT let you down!

I am SO ready to jump into any new challenges and give you 110%. Be it stage or screen, I am SO ready to fill my head with lines and blocking! Can’t wait to hopefully audition for you, and show you I am worthy of the role!

Thankyou for your time, Kindest regards Sammy Tootell
