About the Cast

Miya Cech (Sammy)
Miya Cech is making her mark in Hollywood with her recent roles in film and upcoming television. Miya made her television debut in 2015 as a guest star on the CBS drama “Hawaii Five-0,” an experience that prepared her for her burgeoning career. Shortly thereafter, Cech appeared on several television series including Nickelodeon's “The Thundermans,” season six of the FX horror series “American Horror Story: Roanoke,” followed by the ABC comedy “American Housewife” in which she played Ali Wong’s daughter, in addition to playing the young version of Wong’s ‘Sasha’ in Netflix's hit romantic comedy ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE.

In 2021, Miya was cast in Apple TV+’s live action Kids & Family series, “Surfside Girls,” based on a graphic novel of the same title. Miya was adopted from Tokyo, Japan, as a baby and raised with her three siblings, two of whom were adopted as well, and looks forward to shedding light on the domestic and international process of adoption as she continues to grow in her career and gain a voice among her increasing fan base. For Cech, it is important to normalize the topic of adoption, giving children in the adoption system a platform in which they are comfortable discussing their experiences.
