Home and Away's former associate producer Brodie Macpherson also praised Sam for her 18-month stint on the show.
Brodie shared a photo she took on Sam's very first day of filming alongside a snap from her last day on set.
"Proud of you. Proud of your work. Proud to be your friend," she penned.
Sam's final scenes aired on Thursday night, with her character Chloe saying goodbye to Summer Bay to be with her mum in New Zealand.
The 22-year-old landed the gig playing Mia's daughter in February last year after previously auditioning for four other Home and Away roles.
"My first day on set didn't even feel real, it felt a bit like a dream," she told Perth Now.
"I learn a lot every day from everyone and from the crew as well. That's my favourite part about working on the show. Everyone's always willing to help you as a new actor."
Sam's departure comes after a slew of other core Home and Away stars left earlier this year, including Sam Frost, Harley Bonner, Lukas Radovich and Rob Kipa-Williams.
