Samantha Béart is a classically trained actor, and a BAFTA nominee and GANG Award winner for their role as Karlach in “Baldur’s Gate 3”. They are the first BAFTA Breakthrough performer to be admitted to the initiative on a video game, cult indie hit “The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow”.

Their extensive career also includes Random in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” for BBC Radio 4 and national theatre tours, Calliope in Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman” for Audible, and Orr in “Torchwood” for Big Finish Productions.
