Emma Samms (born Emma Samuelson on 28 August 1960, in London) is an actress who played Holly Sutton Scorpio on the daytime soap opera General Hospital from 1982 to 1985, and from 1992 to 1993.
She then moved onto prime-time drama, replacing Pamela Sue Martin in the role of Fallon Carrington Colby in Dynasty. She was introduced to viewers in episodes of Dynasty before becoming one of the main stars of the spin-off series The Colbys. When The Colbys was axed after two seasons, Samms returned to Dynasty for its last two seasons and later the mini-series Dynasty: The Reunion.
In 2003, she appeared in four episodes of the BBC series Holby City. On 14 October 2005, she started appearing on the BBC daytime series Doctors.
In February 2006, Samms made a 7-episode return to GH, in which she was selling the antidote to a serious virus that was causing an epidemic in Port Charles. She was busted by Carly (Laura Wright), Luke (Anthony Geary), Robert (Tristan Rogers), and Jason (Steve Burton). In the end, she tried to con her way back into a relationship, with both Luke and Robert, which both failed. She was apologized to by Robert, for faking his death, and on her last air-date, she was carted off to a prison in the Dominican Republic.
She returned to do a three-week stint on GH in May 2006; her first appearance aired on May 1. She also appeared as a presenter (alongside Tristan Rogers) at the 2006 Daytime Emmy Awards in Hollywood on April 28.
In 1983, Samms and her cousin, film producer Peter Samuelson, co-founded the Starlight Children's Foundation, an organisation that attempts to fulfil the wishes of seriously ill children.
The organisation was a response to losing her brother Jamie, who died at age nine from aplastic anemia.
Emma has been married and divorced three times. Her husbands were Bansi Nagji, Tim Dillon, and John Holloway. Her last marriage ended in 2003. She has 2 children.
