The story of Samantha Burton’s disappearance from the limelight is one many sure want to hear. Like the ocean, Hollywood is a vast space of imagination and wonder, it has birthed some of the greatest ideas man has ever seen, sparked revolutions, become a source of solitude in times of great sadness and is spread widely across the globe for anyone who can navigate it to journey through and find great treasures.
But also like the ocean, Hollywood is a mysterious place. So many dark secrets are buried underneath its beautiful surface and when many set out to sail in the industry, their ships never last on the waters. Many actors and actresses have appeared in a Hollywood film only to never be seen again. Some have been generous to describe it as people simply quitting after checking a film appearance off their bucket list while some have adopted a grimmer explanation, suggesting the actor or actresses caved under the massive pressure and stress of being a Hollywood actor. What we can agree on is that the reasons differ among individuals and some of them deserve a look at after their apparent disappearance. One of such persons is Samantha Burton who starred in The Sandlot 2, only to never be seen again.
Samantha Burton’s Biography
Like lightning, Samantha Burton flashed across screens of Hollywood in America and endeared herself to the hearts of thousands across the country. But unlike lightning, which may not strike at the same spot twice but definitely strikes again, Samantha would be seen no more in theatres all over the country. Her lack of presence in the movie industry means she hasn’t had a lot of information collected about her but here are a few things we were able to discover about the elusive actress.
She was born in the home of country music in Nashville, Tennessee on the 22nd of December in 1991. Perhaps it is the surrendering of her privacy that scared her off Hollywood but so far she has kept any information regarding her childhood, parents or any sibling private.

She did, however, gain prominence as the daughter Hayley Goodfairer in The Sandlot 2, a 2005 film which was a sequel to The Sandlot, a coming of age film that was released in 1993. It was directed by David Mickey Evans. Although the film was sent straight to DVD and was critically panned, it sort of became a cult classic making Samantha Burton a cherished actress in the process.
In the film as Hayley Goodfairer, Samantha’s father is a NASA engineer who, along with Samantha and her friends defeated a bully who sought to take over the sandlot. The story is that of good people coming together to defeat evil. Whatever Samantha Burton’s reasons are, she would no longer be seen in front of a camera again on television.
