Smantha got her first adult acting job in 1988 and made a big impression on Hollywood, landing roles in three series and five television movies before her starmaking performance opposite Christian Slater in Allan Moyle's Pump Up The Volume.
In 1992, she played the voice of the role of Crysta in Ferngully: The Last Rainforest. Slater also starred along side her once again. Her next big hit was as Miranda Presly in The Thing Called Love where she met Sandra Bullock and the two became best friends. In 1996 she made John Woo's Broken Arrow, her third film with Slater, but on September 7, 1996, Samantha's mother passed away from cancer and the loss led her to take some time away from the work she loves. She has since made numerous appearances on talk shows including Leno, Letterman and Conan O'Brien and is now enjoying a renaissance in Hollywood today.
