Samuel Mekonnen

Website by George Trickey


Ethnically ambiguous & multilingual character actor Samuel Mekonnen, is grateful to have such a diverse and distinctive background.

Based in Los Angeles, and raised by immigrant parents from Eritrea (East Africa) Sam is currently fluent in 4 different languages (German, Tigrinya, Amharic, and English).

His eccentric 11th grade drama teacher, was the spark he needed to ignite his passion for acting, and since then that fire has grown to unimaginable heights, providing opportunities and purpose towards perfecting his craft.

Samuel gained admission to Humber College for a 4 year degree program in film and media productions. Successfully finishing one year, he redirected his focus to acting, and it has proved to be a fruitful decision.

He can be seen in several feature films, television episodes, and national commercials.

Those who work with Samuel enjoy it because he is focused, ambitious and works tirelessly to deliver the best possible performance.
