Logan Browning stars in the Netflix Original Series, Dear White People, as the lead role of ‘Samantha White’ which returns for its fourth and final season later this year.
Last year, she starred opposite Allison Williams in Netflix’s film, The Perfection, from director Richard Shepard. This horror-thriller follows the story of two young cello prodigies and a sinister obsession that drives the dark pursuit of perfection. Browning received rave reviews for her performance from The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times both calling her a “revelation.”
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Logan moved to Los Angeles when she was 14-years-old and quickly found success, cast as recurring characters on the television shows, Summerland and Ned’s Declassified. Next, she starred as the leading character ‘Sasha’ in the BRATZ movie followed by booking the series regular role of ‘Brianna’ in Tyler Perry's sitcom Meet the Browns. Prior to landing Dear White People, Logan juggled two very different roles at once; her series regular role as the duplicitous Devil Girl Captain ‘Jelena’ on the VH1 scripted drama Hit the Floor, as well as the PlayStation Network’s POWERS as the light-manipulating superhuman ‘Zora.’

Joey King can currently be seen starring opposite Patricia Arquette in Hulu’s critically acclaimed true-crime anthology series, The Act, which has set a new subscribers-to-series record at Hulu. The wildly successful series follows Gypsy Blanchard (King), a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother, Dee Dee (Arquette). King received rave reviews for her performance, which earned her a 2019 Emmy nomination, a 2020 Critics’ Choice Award nomination, a 2020 Golden Globe Award nomination, a 2020 SAG Award nomination as well as two Gold Derby TV Awards nominations in the categories “Movie/ Limited Series Actress,” and “Breakthrough Performer of the Year.”
King is the breakout star of the Netflix phenomenon The Kissing Booth, which Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has referred to as “one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world”. This follows her leading performance in Blumhouse’s The Lie, which premiered at TIFF 2018, and the SXSW darling SUMMER ’03. In addition to this success, Paramount Players has also acquired King’s original pitch entitled The In Between which she will star in and also produce. The film, which is to be written by Marc Klein, is the story of a supernatural romance in the vein of Ghose. Additional credits include Ramona and Beezus, The Conjuring, Oz Great and Powerful and the Sundance favorite Wish I Was Here.
