Samy Seghir (born 29 June 1994 in Saint-Denis) is a French actor of Algerian descent.

Living in Émile-Dubois, like the character he was playing, Messaoud, Samy starred in this historic film alongside Gérard Depardieu and Nathalie Baye. In 2006, he starred in a TV movie, Harkis, notably with Smaïn. In 2007, he also starred in Big City, a film by Djamel Bensalah. In 2009, he won the lead role in Neuilly sa mère !, which was the result of his previous collaboration with Djamel Bensalah, the producer.

He was part of the last fifteen contenders for a César Award, for the Most Promising Newcomer. In the end, he was not on the list of the final five nominees. In the spring of 2010, he starred in Alain Tasma's TV movie Fracture, inspired by the book Ils sont votre épouvante et vous êtes leur crainte by Thierry Jonquet, with Leila Bekhti and Anaïs Demoustier. On 28 May 2011, he made an appearance in the clip 'L'insécurité' by French rapper, Seyfu. Nine years later, Samy Seghir again has the main role of Neuilly sa mère, sa mère.
