Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black, IN THE HEIGHTS) stars with Sylvester Stallone and Euphoria star Javon "Wanna" Walton in Prime Video's action movie, SAMARITAN. Her Tiffany character is a struggling single mother and a superhero in her own right. Dascha chats with us about acting alongside the iconic actor and the up-and-coming young star.
SAMARITAN starts streaming Friday, August 26. Thirteen-year-old Sam Cleary (Javon “Wanna” Walton) suspects that his mysterious and reclusive neighbor Mr. Smith (Sylvester Stallone) is actually a legend hiding in plain sight. Twenty-five years ago, Granite City’s super-powered vigilante, Samaritan, was reported dead after a fiery warehouse battle with his rival, Nemesis. Most believe Samaritan perished in the fire, but some in the city, like Sam, have hope that he is still alive. With crime on the rise and the city on the brink of chaos, Sam makes it his mission to coax his neighbor out of hiding to save the city from ruin.
