According to her social media posts, she was given the title Homecoming Queen during college though the names of the schools she attended were not shared. Many sources believe that she prefers not to share any personal information, and so stay away from the spotlight.
The Sandlot 2
Burton’s popularity increased significantly when she was cast in “The Sandlot 2” also known as “The Sandlot 2: The Sandlot Continues”; the 2005 film is a direct-to-DVD sequel to “The Sandlot”, which is a coming of age film telling the story of a group of young baseball players. The original film did well at the box office, and is considered a cult film – the sequel is set 10 years before the original film, and her character develop friendships with the other children in the Sandlot due to the problem of a mutated dog the called The Beast. Cast members of the film include Max Lloyd-Jones, James Earl Jones, Reece Thompson, and Brett Kelly, and it was narrated by David Mickey Evans. Burton’s character becomes the main romantic interest of one of the children, whose futures are detailed at the end of the film.
After the Sandlot 2
Samantha hasn’t had any other major acting projects since appearing in “The Sandlot 2”, and many credit this to the fact that she never transitioned to more adult roles. However, it was reported that in 2011 she became the production executive for a project called “Obsessive Compulsive Hoarder” which she did for a year. Some online posts show that she has various photo shoots and modelling endeavors which she likely focused on as she grew up.

For her personal life, it is known that Samantha started a relationship with “The Sandlot 2” co-star Max Lloyd-Jones in 2005, having developed their romance while filming. They stayed together for a year, but eventually their relationship ended. Max on the other hand continued to stay active with his career, transitioning to more adult roles and appearing in projects such as “Supernatural”, “Teen Wolf”, “Scream”, and many others.
Recent online posts show that she is now in a new relationship, though details about her boyfriend/partner are scarce, except for a few photos and videos of them together.
Is Samantha Burton on Social Media?
Similar to numerous actresses and models, Burton is highly active online through social media, particularly on Twitter on which she lists herself as an actress and model, though only credits “The Sandlot 2” as the one film she’s known for. Her account mainly posts about shows that she is following, while also staying connected with her fans. There is also a Facebook account under her name filled with various pictures of her during her time in “The Sandlot 2”, though it has not been active since 2011. Due to the lack of activity and personal pictures on the account, it is likely that it was just a fan-made account.
Since appearing in the straight to DVD film, Samantha’s popularity has waned over the years as evidenced by her online accounts having fewer followers compared to other actors. Some of her co-stars in “The Sandlot 2” would continue to increase their experience with numerous projects. There are also no major news covering her or her career in the past few years, with headlines often talking about people who share names with her, but are not associated to her in any way.
She shares the same name as an artist based in Canada, a child singer from the United States, and a previously pregnant woman who got to the headlines in the early 2010s after being detained in the hospital causing numerous issues. The actress has remained low profile, and looks to remain that way based on her recent online endeavors.
