Actress Samantha Weinstein, of ‘Carrie the Strange’ (2013), has died aged 28 after a two-and-a-half-year battle with ovarian cancer.

The Canadian star died on May 14 in a hospital in Toronto, Canada. The information comes from Global News and Daily Mail this Wednesday (24).

“Sam was truly the living embodiment of a ray of sunshine,” said his father, David Weinstein. “She was so full of positive energy that anyone who knew her would say she lit up every room she walked into.”

According to her father, since the diagnosis, the young woman decided to enjoy life and traveled around the world.

“What really struck me last week was that everyone I spoke to said she had changed their lives,” said Jojo Tindall-Weinstein, the actress’ mother.

In addition to “Carrie the Stranger”, which is a remake of the 1976 original, Samantha appears in films such as “The Cradle of Life” (2011) and “Haunted by the Past” (2013). She also starred in series such as “Copper” (2012), “Alias ​​Grace” (2017) and “O Peso da Verdade” (2020).

Samantha had been acting since she was six years old, and in the last weeks of her life, she did voice acting for animations such as “Mittens & Pants” and “Dino Ranch”, even in the midst of illness.

Samantha is survived by her husband, Michael, whom she married last October, and her sister, Sabrina.

On her Instagram profile, fans paid tribute to the young woman. “Sam was such a bright light. It was a privilege to meet her,” one wrote. “We will miss you. The world needs more people like you,” said another. “This absolutely breaks my heart. Sending so much love to all of Sam’s family and friends,” the user commented.
