When asked if going red permanently was an option, Samara admitted upkeep would be a clincher.
"You'd have to dye it all the time, and that would be tricky," she laughed.
Her red hair wasn't the only thing she loved about her character's look. While much of G.I. Joe squad member Scarlett's wardrobe was pieced together to compliment her rather, um, action-filled lifestyle, there were several low-key scenes where we got a peek of the black-belted character's personal style.
"[Scarlett] is very stylish when she's not in her superhero suit. I want to steal all of it! I loved her leather coat, and there were some boots with snakes on the bottom, they were sick," Samara said.
Samara is fast becoming one of Australia's biggest Hollywood stars alongside the likes of Margot Robbie and Isla Fisher. Like Samara, both actresses got their start on popular local soaps, Neighbours and Home And Away.
Of course, Samara's roles these days are a far cry from her gentle Home And Away character, Indi.
There's marital artist Scarlett from G.I. Joe, and her depiction of revenge-seeking Grace from Ready Or Not was absolutely on-point. And who could forget the relentlessly terrifying Nix from Kiwi action comedy Guns Akimbo?
In addition, Samara has recently snapped up a leading role in blockbuster-bound The Valet, an English-language remake of the popular French film.
"I would never do the things that these characters did so it's really fun to live out this fantasy of someone who just kicks ass and doesn't care. It's awesome," Samara told ELLE.
The Adelaide-born actress is keen to keep fuelling that female superhero fire in film, especially where representation has lacked in the past.
"I remember when I saw Wonder Woman, and there's that opening scene where it's all women fighting. I just started crying because I realised I hadn't ever seen that before - an entirely female cast in an action.
"Having that representation makes us feel seen and validated. I realised I really haven't really seen that other than in, like Charlie's Angels or Kim Possible. So I'm really glad to be a part of that, I hope there's more!"
