On Thursday April 13, 2023 we had the honor and privilege to interviewing Samantha Glassner, one of the most gifted and gorgeous new actresses to burst upon our television screens!
During our interview time with superb Samantha, we discussed her career goals in general, and in specific, her professional acting education, and how she joined the cast on the hit television series The Ark portraying the complex strong female character Kelly Fowler for six outstanding episodes!
Samantha joined The Ark crew and passengers beginning in episode seven when it was discovered she was apparently the sole survivor of an attack on Ark-3 by unknown forces. The Kelly character garnered much sympathy as a result. Until the end of the episode when Kelly stole an Ark-3 pistol from their armory while conducting a final search for items of value raising questions about Kelly’s motivations.
Subsequently, Samantha’s character, Kelly Fowler, played an ever growing role in the series story ark on the ship that rescued her, Ark-1. This includes when Kelly used the stolen weapon to escape. Upon Kelly’s return to Ark-15 we learned that she was actually on a secret mission for nefarious purposes are we delineated in our reviews and analysis concluding with episode eleven “The Last Thing You Ever Do”. The episode title is a trademark line that Samantha uses in that penultimate episode that it is actually named for.
As the series concludes it’s first year, we hope that Kelly Fowler will find some affection from her mother in the season one finale, not just the tough love that has shaped Kelly’s character. We sincerely thank Ms. Glassner for a wonderful interview and also thank Patricia Stewart who submitted questions for the interview for Team WHR. We look forward to seeing more of Samantha’s awesome talent in the future!
