Profile Bio Text
Emma Samms (born Emma Samuelson on 28 August 1960) is a British television actress. Samuelson trained as a ballet dancer at the Royal Ballet School but stopped dancing at 15 after a hip injury. Next training as an actress, she changed her name to "Emma Samms" as there was already an "Emma Samuelson" registered at actors union Equity. Samms first played Holly Sutton Scorpio on the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital from 1982 to 1985. With Samms choosing to leave the series amicably to go to ABC`s prime time hit Dynasty, her character Holly seemingly perished in a plane crash. On 15 May 1985, Samms appeared in the fifth season finale "Royal Wedding" as Fallon Carrington Colby, a role originated by Pamela Sue Martin in 1981. The character was immediately transplanted into the new Dynasty spin-off The Colbys for two seasons (1985-1987), until reintroduced back into Dynasty in the 23 September 1987 eighth season premiere "The Siege - Part 1." Samms remained with Dynasty for two seasons until its last episode on 11 May 1989. She later returned for the 1991 miniseries Dynasty: The Reunion.
Samms twice declined offers to appear in Playboy, once during her run on General Hospital and the second during Dynasty. In 1983, Samms and her cousin, film producer Peter Samuelson, co-founded the Starlight Children`s Foundation, an organization that helps seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. The organization was Samms`s response to losing her brother, Jamie, who died at age nine from aplastic anemia. In 1984 Samms and Tristan Rogers went public with their real-life romance, but the relationship ended around the time she left General Hospital the next year. Engaged to Marvin Hamlisch in the early 1980s, Samms has been married three times: to Bansi Nagji from 1991 to 1992, to Tim Dillon from 1994 to 1995, and to John Holloway from 1996 to 2003. She and Holloway have two children, Cameron (born 1997), and Beatrice (born 1998).
