Samantha Morton stars in SundanceTV's drama series "The Last Panthers" as Naomi.

Multi-award winning British actress Samantha Morton first came to the attention of international film audiences in 1997 starring in Carine Adler's harrowing feature, "Under the Skin." It was a role that earned her unanimous critical acclaim and the Boston Film Critics Award for Best Actress.

In 1999, Woody Allen cast her as the mute Hattie in "Sweet and Lowdown," for which she received both Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Morton went on to star in Lynne Ramsay's highly acclaimed "Morvern Callar," and then opposite Tom Cruise in Steven Spielberg's "Minority Report." Morton played Maria Gonzales in Michael Winterbottom's "Code 46," and in 2002, she played Sarah in Jim Sheridan's "In America," earning her a second Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. The following year, she starred opposite Daniel Craig in Roger Michell's "Enduring Love," for which she received a Best Actress nomination at the British Independent Film Awards.

In 2007, Morton played opposite Jim Broadbent as the notorious child-murderer Myra Hindley in the NBC/Channel 4 film, "Longford." The performance earned her the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, as well as BAFTA and Emmy nominations. On the big screen, she received critical acclaim and another BAFTA nomination playing Deborah Curtis in Anton Corbijn's multi-award-winning film, "Control."

Other notable film credits include the New Zealand epic "River Queen," "The Libertine," opposite Johnny Depp, Shekhar Kapur's "The Golden Age," playing Mary Queen of Scots, "The Messenger," opposite Woody Harrelson, and Charlie Kaufman's "Synecdoche," co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman. Morton was more recently seen in "John Carter," alongside Taylor Kitsch and Willem Dafoe, David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," "Decoding Annie Parker" with Maggie Grace, Ben McKenzie and Aaron Paul, and the horror thriller "The Harvest."

In 2009, Morton made her directorial debut with "The Unloved," a film looking at the British government's care system for orphans and children in danger, as seen through the eyes of an eleven-year-old girl. The film won the BAFTA Television award for Best Single Drama.
