As Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we have, but we make a life by what we give.” Your success will not show by what you have but by what you give. Teen actor Samuel Mori Voit or “Sammy Voit” is quite successful given his charitable triumphs at a very young age.
Sammy Voit, a teenager, is already a successful American actor who has demonstrated a passion for the camera since the age of two. Born and brought up in New York City he has trained in acting, dancing, filmmaking, photography, and the culinary arts in NY and LA. His acting talent was discovered through his interest in cooking when he first appeared in MasterChef Junior in 2016 and thereafter in Food Network Star Kids and Chopped Junior in 2017. Voit is not only skilled in front of the camera, but he has what it takes to make it behind the camera as well. He has shot several films of his own and presently he is filming a documentary on youth homelessness in LA called “The Bus Stop”.
Voit is involved in a number of charities and admits that in his life a lot of people have been kind to him, often without knowing the impact of their kindness. For his altruism, Sammy has been listed by Variety in their young Hollywood Youth Impact Report 2018.
To date, Sammy has about sixteen primetime credits to his name including Pen15, Law & Order SVU , The Deuce, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Americans, and Blindspot. So far he has won four awards and one nomination. Some of his notable projects include The Jonas Brother’s Happiness Continues tour and film, the award winning feature film To Dust, This is the Year, How to be a Man, In the Heart of the Heart of the Country and Helen. He has even worked with legends like Hugh Jackman, Zac Affron, Michelle Williams, Géza Röhrig and Matthew Broderick.
His remarkable achievements at such a young age are not overlooked by the others. After Sammy’s visit to the Late Show, Stephen Colbert admitted, “Voit is a star!! I love having him on our show. I look forward to seeing more of Sammy Voit!”
“I believe that we only rise up by lifting others.” Voit says.
