There are so many celebrity children in Hollywood. Each of them has its own unique story and experience. Today, we will talk about the story of Samara Zane, the daughter of Trinidadian-American actress Lorraine Toussaint.
How much do you know about Samara? What about her mother? Or her father? Well, do not worry, if you do not know, we have the answers. Read on to find out.
Who Is Her Mother?
Lorraine Toussaint is a Trinidadian-American actress and recipient of several accolades, including a Screen Actors Guild Award.
She began her acting career in theatre before getting roles in movies. Born in Trinidad and Tobago, she moved to the United States. She was born in April 1960 and moved to the US as a young child.
Speaking about her experience in Trinidad and Tobago, she says, “I grew up under the British system, which I think is horrific for children, very, very strict, a system that did not recognize children as being individuals. You were small animals earning the right to be human”.
About her childhood, actress Lorraine Toussaint says, “Childhood for me then felt extraordinarily powerless, and as an artistic child who learned in alternative ways, it was hell. I was beaten regularly. A good child was a fearful child, and I was a very, very, good little girl, which meant I Lived in a world of silent, dark terror most of the time”.
Lorraine’s mother was a teacher. She moved to Brooklyn in the United States in the 1960s. In the US, Lorraine graduated from Manhattan’s High School of Performing Arts in 1978 and then attended Julliard School’s drama division. Her classmates at the time were Jack Stehlin, Penny Johnson Jerald, Megan Gallagher, and Jack Kenny.
Toussaint began her career as a Shakespearean actress before moving to television and film. She made her screen debut in 1983. Her first bigger role came in 1986 when she played the widow of a man shot and killed by Boston police in the movie A Case of Deadly Force.
Some of her movie credits include Breaking In, Hudson Hawk, Dangerous Minds, Point of No Return, Mother’s Boys, Black Dog, and more. Some of her co-stars included Burt Reynolds, Bruce Willis, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Her biggest and most famous role was portraying Rene Jackson in the Lifetime original television drama series, Any Day Now. That series helped put Lorraine on the map as a serious actress.
She also had a recurring role as defense lawyer Shambala Green in the Law and Order television series. Toussaint appeared in the second season of Netflix’s original comedy-drama series, Orange Is the New Black. She was the main antagonist of season two, portraying Yvonne Vee Parker.
Now let’s talk about her daughter Samara Zane. She is known as the only child of Lorraine and her ex-husband Micah Zane.
The two haven’t disclosed the exact birth date of their daughter to the public. Yet, we can assume her age because Lorraine has posted on social media.
On November 6, 2021, the famous actress shared a photo of her daughter on the social media platform Instagram. She wished happy birthday to Samara, writing, “Happy 17th birthday to my baby girl. I love you”.
That is how we can assume that as of February 2023, Samara Zane is 18 years old. She is now at the tail end of her teenage years.
Some sources say her father is called Micah Zane. Others, claim his name is Michael Tomlinson. What is the truth? Let’s find out.
Micah Zane Internet Blunders
Lorraine Toussaint’s husband’s name is Michael Tomlinson. The couple has been married for many years.
The Internet has done a huge blunder in giving information about Lorraine and her husband. Because of the lack of information about Michael, the internet has gone its own way.
Michael has attended several events alongside his wife. But people are less aware of him. Lorraine put an end to the confusion, saying her husband’s name is Michael Tomlinson. She even cracked up a joke, saying she might have been married to Micah Zane. Lorraine joked that everything on the Internet is true.
Michael probably does not want to live a life where everyone stalks you. He is fine with living the usual and common lifestyle, away from the public.
Here is how Lorraine jokes about her husband, saying, “I have a real husband and an Internet husband. My Internet husband is Micah Zane. I’ve been married to Micah Zane for many, many years now. When I take Micah Zane off the Internet, he comes back on. My real husband is Michael Tomlinson.”
Marriage With Michael
Lorraine and Michael have been married for several years. He is the alleged father of Samara Zane. Seeing that their daughter is 18 years of age, we can assume they have been married for more than two decades.
Michael looks like a person who has a solid and loving attachment to his wife. So far, they haven’t had any family problems or feuds.
We wish them to stay happy and enjoy each other’s company.
Is She On Social Media?
Samara Zane is a young celebrity kid. As such, you are a target of Internet predators. Yes, Samara Zane can be found on the popular social media platform Instagram. Her username is “blossom of ore”. But that is a private account and you should not expect to befriend her anytime soon. She has only 200-something followers, meaning her closest circle.
Her mother, on the other hand, is a bit more popular on social media. Lorraine has more than 40k followers on Instagram. And yes, you can often find pictures of Samara on Lorraine’s account.
Some young children began work in their teenage years. That is not the case with Samara. Truth be told, we do not know her educational background. Her mother has gone a long way and done a good job of keeping Samara’s life private.
On the other hand, the American actress is a public person. And her net worth is more than $2 million. That is a decent amount of money for a peaceful life. Samara might work after graduation. But for now, her mother provides for the family.
Lorraine earns her money from her professional career as an actress, but also from sponsorship deals and business investments.
