Skyler Samuels

Skyler Samuels caught attention early in her career, becoming a junior correspondent for Access Hollywood at just 8 years old. Two years later, she made her television debut in an episode of Nickelodeon's sitcom "Drake & Josh." Her early years in the industry included roles in children's series like "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," "That's So Raven," and "Wizards of Waverly Place."
After minor film roles, Samuels secured significant parts in "The Gates" (2010) and as the lead in "The Nine Lives of Chloe King" (2011). Despite both series ending after their first seasons, her performances garnered attention. Notably, Ryan Murphy, known for "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee," cast her in several episodes of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" as Bonnie Lipton, a captive of the psychopathic clown. Impressed by her work, Murphy later included her in the ensemble cast of "Scream Queens," where she played Grace Gardner, a new student at Wallace University entangled in a series of slasher murders targeting the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority, alongside Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis.
