Mel Brook’s 20-year-old granddaughter stole the show as she walked the red carpet with her grandfather, wearing a daring velvet gown.


Famed director Mel Brooks has a stunning granddaughter, Samantha Brooks, who is making strides to follow in his footsteps. The beautiful young woman walked the red carpet together in October 2017.

The 92-year-old director attended the opening of the new musical, "Young Frankenstein," which is the stage production version of his classic comedy-horror film.

Along with him was his granddaughter Samantha, who seemingly stole the show with her classy look at the Garrick Theatre in London.

Then still a teen, she wore a tight-fitting burgundy velvet gown which perfectly hugged her slim frame. The gown had a thigh-high slit, and a strapless cut with a low neckline that showed her cleavage.


She matched the entire ensemble with metallic heels, a golden necklace, and a pair of drop earrings. Her auburn hair was pulled back into an elegant half-updo, with her bangs framing her forehead.


She came to support her grandfather as they watched the first show.

Samantha is on her way to breaking into the industry, with aspirations of becoming an actress. She has previously directed and starred in her own 20-minute short film in 2015.

Mel excitingly spoke about his granddaughter’s career, saying it came as no surprise that Samantha is following his footsteps.


In 2015, he was asked if he could give Samantha a couple of notes and advice.

“It's giving up a lot for a 17-year-old, to allow me to voice anything that might even be vaguely negative. She's really following in my footsteps,” he said, adding: “In real life, your grandkids like you. Unlike anyone else in your family, they're the only ones who really like you.”

The creators of "The Producers" and "Blazing Saddles" brought Mel Brooks’ "Young Frankenstein" back to life as a musical on stage. The classic comedy-horror film was released in 1974.

The lead character is played by theater star Hadley Fraser. Meanwhile, Leslie Joseph and Ross Noble play the roles of Frau Blücher and Igor.
