The UnderstudyPlayed by Camille Cregan
The understudy in Arthur's latest play -- Samantha -- is not at all happy with her status as a backup. She is not accustomed to being in anyone else's shadow and will go to great lengths to take what she feels is rightfully hers. At the age of 18, she ran off to France with her mother's fiancé on the night before their wedding. The affair did not last, but out of that experience she became fluent in French. She returned home with a Parisian lover and began pursuing her career in acting.
