Samantha ‘Sam’ Sloyan was born in 1978 in California, U.S.. She is the daughter of the American actor James Sloyan and actress Deidre Lenihan, and has one brother named Dan Sloyan. Sloyan is best known for her roles in ‘In the Key of Eli’, ‘Scandal’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.
Question: Please tell me we haven’t see the last of Penny on Grey’s Anatomy. She became my favorite this season.
Ausiello: Seeing as how she and Callie are sort of a package deal, I can confirm that we’ve seen the last of Penny. For now, anyway. Shonda Rhimes left the door wide open for Sara Ramirez to make the occasional guest appearance as Callie shuttles Sophia back and forth between New York and Seattle, and I suppose Penny — and her portrayer Samantha Sloyan — could tag along on one of those trips. I wouldn’t hold my breath, though.
Kate Sigel who played the main role on the horror movie Hush which Samantha stars in, recently did an interview with ACED Magazine and said that her favorite scene to film was the one with Samantha.
What were your favorite scenes?
Kate: The scene with Samantha Sloyan, a warm, giving, open actress who played my neighbor. The dialog scene with her was such a joy. It’s a turn from the rest of the film, and it creates a sense of who Maddie really is and how she interacts with people around her.

In this heart-pounding thriller from acclaimed writer and director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake), silence takes on a terrifying new dimension for a young woman living along in the woods.

But one night, the fragile world is shattered when the masked face of a psychotic killer appears in her window. Without another living soul for miles, and with no way to call for help, it appears that Maddie is at the killer’s mercy… but he may have underestimated his prey.
