AC­TOR

In 2017, the 15-year-old ac­tress starred in two films that un­spooled at the Cannes fes­ti­val: Lynne Ram­say’s “You Were Never Re­ally Here,” in which she co-stars with Joaquin Phoenix, and Todd Haynes’ “Won­der­struck.” It was a heady year for such a young and rel­a­tively in­ex­pe­ri­enced ac­tress. On “Here,” which dealt with dark themes, the cast kept the mood light on set. “It felt like we were film­ing a com­edy; we were laugh­ing all the time,” says Sam­sonov, who started mod­el­ing at just 2 years old. She re­cently col­lab­o­rated with French lux­ury brand Kenzo. “I’ve been do­ing it since be­fore I can re­mem­ber, it’s some­thing I’m used to now, it just feels right,” she says. She dreams of be­ing fea­tured in a Chanel cam­paign one day.
