AfroComicCon welcomes writer and actor Bianca Sams as a Special Guests for the convention’s first virtual gathering!
Bianca Sams is a Writer/ Actor hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work spans different genres and mediums (Plays, Television, Novels and Feature films). Her original pieces are often described as lyrical investigations of found stories out of today’s headlines or the pages of history, that ask audiences to face their own complex love affair with misery. She’s drawn to stories that question the roles of women, ethnicity, and family in modern society. Her work often deals with the search for “self” in the collective identity and also explores the underlying connective threads of mankind.
Awards and honors include Ingram New Works Fellow (Nashville Rep), Warner Brothers TV Workshop, Tracking Board 2016 Young & Hungry List, WriteHerList 2017 and Tracking Board HIT LIST 2018. She previously worked as a writer on Training Day starring Bill Paxton, The Originals with Julie Plec & Jeffrey Lieber, and Titans for Warner Bros. She’s currently a Co-Producer on CW’s Charmed.
