EMMA SAMMS BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Emma Samms was born on August 28th, 1960 in London, England with the birth name Emma Samuelson.  Her mother, Madeleine U. White was a ballet dancer and her father, Michael W. Samuelson owned a company that rented out film equipment. 
 
As a young lady, Samms also took ballet lessons at the Royal Ballet School, however she stopped as a teenager after suffering from a hip injury.  She then decided to pursue a career as an actress and changed her last name to Samms since her birth name was already registered with the Actors Equity.
 
In 1979 she began working as an actress first in the film, "Arabian Adventure" followed by roles on the television movie, "Goliath Awaits" (1981) and the television series, "Ellis Island" (1984).
 
Her big break came when she was cast on the Soap opera, "General Hospital" (1982-1985) and then she was offered a role on the television series, "Dynasty" (1985-1989) which later was made into a spin off television series called, "The Colby's" (1985-1987).  In 1991 she returned to the show for, "Dynasty: The Reunion".
 
Along with her work on this series she did also try to take on a couple film roles, however, none were as successful as her television roles.  She did do a couple television movies such as, "Robin Cook's Harmful Intent" (1993) and "Treacherous Beauties" (1994) before General Hospital asked her to come back to the soap opera after a seven year absence.
 
Her career was maintaining a steady pace in television acting.  She was even cast on another series, "Model's Inc" (1994-1995) which was a spin-off of "Melrose Place".  Some of her latest roles have been on, "Holby City" (2003), "Doctors" (2005), "Celebrity Scissorhands" (2006), "The Bill" (2007) and "Casualty" (2011).
 
Samms has married three times throughout her lifetime.  Her first husband was Bansi Nagji from 1991 through May of 1992.  She then married Tim Dillon in January 1994 but this marriage also was short lived lasting only until October 1995.  Her third husband was John Holloway in 1996 and they had two children together before this marriage also resulted in her third divorce in 2003.
 
Emma is involved with the Starlight Children's Foundation which helps children suffering from various diseases deal with the pain through the use of entertainment, education and various activities.
