Samantha Spiro Facts

  1. Spiro was raised in Radlett in Hertfordshire.
  2. She had started to crave to become an actress at the age of 10, after she saw a production of Androcles and the Lion at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park in central London. It had just been a desire to be up on the stage with no idea regarding the form it would take.
  3. Samantha has disclosed that her time at Bancroft’s had ignited her enthusiasm for a career in the Arts.
  4. She has recounted having experienced a period of unemployment in her twenties when she used to sell mirrors on Portobello Road. She would get envious of the famous actors walking past not realizing that they were probably out of work as well.
  5. She has recalled that before taking on the role of Barbara in Cleo, Camping, Emmanuelle and Dick, she had been delighted to meet the legend, having found her to be unbelievably warm and generous. Barbara had arrived backstage after the first night of the show with flowers, chocolates, a balloon, champagne as well as a camera crew. She had been totally open to Samantha phoning her up at any time to take any information or advice.
  6. Spiro has revealed that aging has been a bonus for her. As a young actress, she had never felt quite right and had always opted for character roles, and never the straight ingénue. As she has got older, she has been grateful to find that her parts have got better.
  7. Her daughter had given up meat, after which Samantha and her husband had followed suit. She has also tried to avoid dairy.
  8. Samantha has not been religious, but has still liked going round to her mother’s place on Friday nights if she is not performing, to light the candles, say a prayer and then enjoy lots of delicious food.
