It’s a Wrap on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars

Ayman Samman PLLI’ve had the good fortune to be part of Episode 12 in the fifth season of the ABC Family hit drama, Pretty Little Liars. I play a Polygraph Examiner who interrogates one of the main characters. It was a fun and rewarding experience. Everyone from cast and crew were kind and professional. You don’t last five years on air if you don’t have a great team. Look out for a release late August. It was great to be on the set while the show celebrated the airing of their 100th episode. #PLL100. Director Ron Lagomarsino did an amazing job bringing the script to life.

Go ahead, make my day, American Sniper!


A Surreal Experience With A Legend

120531-395697-120531-clint-eastwood.blocks_desktop_mediumI just had one of the most amazing experiences in my career as an actor. Not only that I got to meet a cinematic icon and a childhood idol but I also got to work with him. I’ve been very fortunate to have a principle role in the movie American Sniper starringBradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood. It was one of the most collaborative sets I’ve been on. Mr. Eastwood is an Actor’s director and Bradley Cooper is a very generous actor. I am still in elation of the whole experience and very excited to share it with you. I cannot divulge story details so you’ll just have to wait and see how my character contributes to the plot. This is an Epic Biopic and I urge you to look out for it and watch it in 2015. American Sniper is based on a true story of a Navy SEAL who recounts his military career. The true story behind the movie was publish in a memoir with the same name,American Sniper and is available onAmazon and in book stores. 

Standup Comedy For Charity

Screen Shot 2014-04-13 at 8.36.23 PMIt feels great to make people laugh. I am a true believer in healing through laughter and I do it every chance I get. So, when the opportunity to make people laugh AND help a charitable cause, it’s a no brainer. I was fortunate enough to perform a Standup comedy set during a charity event by the Egyptian American Organization. A non-profit organization that is set out To provide a forum for Egyptian Americans to serve their interests and preserve their rich cultural traditions so they and their children would take pride in their unique heritage, their knowledge of the Arabic language, and their bicultural experience. The event was called “Egyptian Lelah” or Egyptian Night and the cause was to help Dar Al-Orman Orphanage in Cairo, Egypt. The event included other artists and sponsors and we were able to raise a good amount of funds.
