Olivia Baker in “All American”
In The CW’s drama “All American,” Samantha Logan plays Olivia Baker, Coach Billy Baker’s (Taye Diggs) daughter. But really, she’s a girl with a dark and destructive past that no one seems to acknowledge, so when Spencer’s the first person to really see her, she can’t help but feel a connection deeper than she’s ever felt before.
Born in Boston, Logan has dedicated herself to the arts from a young age becoming a triple threat singing, dancing, and acting. Logan began her career booking national commercials and performing in the theater before landing her first television role in the drama “666 Park Avenue.”
Logan will next reprise her role on the critically acclaimed drama “13 Reasons Why,” where she stars opposite Dylan Minnette and Alisha Boe. The story follows a group of high school students who are collectively being held responsible for the suicide of their classmate and must face the consequences once the truth comes out.

Created by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, Brian Yorkey, season three is slated to be released in 2019. The series is produced by Paramount Television with Selena Gomez serving as the executive producer.
