Stunning Home and Away star Sam Barrett, who plays the feisty Chloe Anderson, has made a name for herself in the beloved Aussie soap after an unconventional start to life
Since her on-screen debut in 2021, Sam Barrett of Channel 5’s Home and Away has been a fan favourite.
Sam, who is now 22 years old, was born in the US but relocated to Perth when she was only four years old. She currently resides and works in Australia.
Sam had only acted in a few short films before to her breakout role as Chloe Anderson in Home and Away, but she is now swiftly gaining popularity with Channel 5 fans.
Being billed as a “smart and sassy young lady” who was looking for adventure and exploring her adulthood, Sam’s character Chloe was raised by her single mother Mia before seeing her old friend Nikau Parata brought her to Summer Bay.
America and Australia
The actress’s family opted to move, and she was born there, but they later made their way back and lived in Balcatta.
The actress and her family are close; she has shared photos of the two of them on Instagram in the past.
She has numerous brothers and is the lone daughter.
She returned to Australia and completed her acting training at the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts, graduating in 2018.
Sam played Daisy in seven episodes of The Heights, which focused on the difficulties faced by inhabitants of a social housing block, before her part in Sunny Bay.
As Chloe, she has been involved in a number of plotlines, including accidentally killing her father and breaking up with her boyfriend Ryder.
Fifth Time Lucky
Sam had to go through a staggering five auditions before she was able to get the position in Home and Away.
She tried out for other characters up until the directors decided Chloe Anderson was the ideal fit, at which point she relocated to Sydney, where the programme is filmed.
She claimed that despite the hurdles, everything happened in a couple of weeks and that the show has taught her a lot.
According to the actress, her first day on set “didn’t even feel real” and was more like “a bit of a dream,” but she has since come to realise that “everyone is willing to help” and that she “learns a lot every day” from the cast and crew.
Sam was taken under the wing of Ray Meagher, who has played Alf Stewart on the show since the first episode back in 1988.
Sam said to Perth Now that it was “very strange” to meet Ray Meagher for the first time and simply converse with him. Ray and I were in one of the first scenes that I really got to shoot. It was amazing to work with him because, if you watch Australian television, you are familiar with him.
Being a cast member of the Australian soap opera, which Barrett said she had grown up watching, “was a goal of hers”: There are undoubtedly some folks on the show that I like because there are so many newcomers.
Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, Melissa George, Simon Baker, and Ryan Kwanten are some Home and Away actors that had their major breaks through the programme.
Sam loves to post selfies on her Instagram, which is filled with barefaced and natural pictures of the star.
A real beach babe, Sam appears to like nothing more than kicking back and relaxing.
Her stunning natural beauty continues to floor fans, with her most recent selfie receiving an influx of compliments such as “cutie,” “beautiful” and “amazing”.
Sam has very striking facial features, with prominent bone structure and an ethereal look that encapsulates fans.
She often wears her brunette hair straight and has an incredible body to boot.
