|Full Name:||Samar Hashmi|
|Portrayed by:||Marjan Neshat|
Samar Hashmi is the half-sister of Shelby Wyatt. They share the same father. She was born to a Saudi Arabian mother and American father (also Shelby's father), and their father hid the existence of her from Shelby for twenty years. She is Shelby's only remaining immediate family, as Shelby's parents "died" in the 9/11 attacks. Samar and Shelby regularly communicate over Skype, in Arabic. Shelby sends Samar large amounts of money (Shelby's parents were rich businesspeople) including one for a deposit on a home Samar supposedly purchased. Shelby says it's the least she could do for her half-sister, after all she has been through. Later in the season, Samar is revealed to be a con artist, by Shelby's former boyfriend, Caleb Haas. She is portrayed by Marjan Neshat.
