Childhood and youth
Samara was born on February 23, 1992, in Adelaide, Australia. According to the European horoscope, people who were born on the same day belong to the Pisces zodiac sign. However, Australia is located in the Southern Hemisphere, where they use the local horoscope, according to which Samara was born under the Bat sign.
The girl’s uncle is the famous Australian actor, Hugo Wallace Weaving, who starred in The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings. Her father, Simon Weaving, is now an artistic director of the Canberra International Film Festival.
As a child, Samara and her parents lived in Singapore, Fiji, and Indonesia. The Weaving family returned to Australia in 2004. The future actress participated in school productions at Canberra Girls Grammar School. The star has a younger sister, Morgan, who also chose an acting career.
Weaving began her film career with participation in the Australian TV series Out of the Blue and Home and Away. The second project is the longest-running soap opera on Australian television. They had begun to film it four years before the birth of Samara.
In 2017, the girl appeared in the Australian TV series Picnic at Hanging Rock, which is a remake of the 1975 film of the same name.

The best movie in the filmography of Samara Weaving is the British-American Oscar-winning drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The Australian actress has played Penelope, a 19-year-old girlfriend of John Hawkes’s character, Charlie, in the movie.
In the mid-2010s, Weaving dated English model Rob Moore. Then Samara’s Instagram page was full of photos of the girl in a bikini. She posted a large number of revealing pictures because, in 2012, Weaving became the official model of underwear brand Bonds. Then Rob and Samara broke up, and Weaving began to show her personal life less often.
