Samaire Rhys Armstrong (born October 31, 1980) is an American
actress, perhaps best known for her roles as Emily on Entourage
and as Anna Stern on The O.C.
Armstrong was born in Tokyo, Japan to American parents; her first
name is Celtic. She lived in Japan for several years, before moving
to Hawaii and later Sedona, Arizona where she grew up. Armstrong
attended the University of Arizona, but dropped out because of the
school drama department's policy of barring freshmen from involvement
in productions. Afterwards, she moved to Los Angeles. She is now
dating Kevin Banek.
Her first major break into film acting was as one half of the conjoined
twins the Fratelli sisters in the parody movie "Not Another
Teen Movie". Armstrong also had a recurring role on Freaks
and Geeks, and had guest appearances on Judging Amy, Party of Five,
and the X-Files. She was romantically linked to actor Aaron Paul.
Armstrong appeared in The O.C. for one episode, and was brought
back at fan request for several episodes of the first season. She
can be currently seen on the HBO Television Series Entourage. Her
most recent projects include the films Stay Alive, Just My Luck
and Rise. She has since returned to The O.C. starting episode 22
of season 3.
When not acting, Armstrong is often designing clothes for her own
clothing brand called NARU. She has also appeared in music videos
such as in Hanson's Penny and Me and Daniel Powter's Bad Day.
