Solomon Trimble (Mescalero Apache, Lakota) was born in Wichita, Kansas. He plays Sam Uley, the leader of the werewolfs, in the box office hit and fan phenomenon TWILIGHT, which is his cinematic debut.

Trimble has been performing in the theater since the age of six and has been a traditional Native American Grass Dancer since the age of thee. Between the ages of 3-13, Trimble was a member of a Northwest Native American champion youth drum group "The Young Spirit Singers".

After spending some time in New Mexico, he returned to Portland, OR, and was recruited by the Dance West Dance Guild, the then Dance West Dance Company. Solomon studied Jazz, Tap and Ballet under Terry Brock and Julane Stites, and helped choreograph a marriage between ballet and Native American dance, which gave him the opportunity to travel to Canada and Japan, with Dance West. He continued his education at Portland Community College, pursuing guitar and voice as a music major. He graduated in the spring of 2008 from Portland State University with a Bachelors in Mathematics, and a Philosophy Minor.

Trimble was offered the role of Sam Uley when he accompanied his brother to an audition for a minor role.

While the role of Sam Uley has not been confirmed for him in the TWILIGHT sequel, Sam is preparing for it by working out vigorously and he is learning to speak Quiluete for the film, which he plans to teach the future wolf pack actors.
