Television viewers first caught notice of Skyler Samuels when she became a junior correspondent for Access Hollywood at the age of 8. Background roles on shows like Drake & Josh and The Suite Life of Zach and Cody followed, and by the time the actress was 15, she was starring in the 2009 remake of The Stepfather. The next year, Samuels would change gears for the family comedy Furry Vengeance, before switching it up once more for a role in the scary TV series The Gates. Though The Gates ended its brief run after just one season, Samuels quickly bounced back as the lead in The Nine Lives of Chloe King -- an ABC Family action/adventure series following a high school girl with feline powers as she takes flight from a secret society intent on seeing her dead.
