Paula Essam is a German-Cameroonian actor and multi disciplinary creative known for Sam- A Saxon (Disney +, 26th April 2023), How to sell drugs online fast (Netflix), Three Lives Long (Feature Film, release TBA 2023).

Paula Essam speaks six languages fluently English, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, French, German and a little bit of Spanish. She is currently (2023) developing projects as a writer, while expanding her work as an artist within fashion.

Her thirst for knowledge and love for people and communication had her travel the world and live in France and South Korea and gain a bachelors degree in Political Sciences.
