Beginning with today’s Monday, April 17 episode of “General Hospital,” fans can look forward to seeing another return visit from Emma Samms as her iconic character Holly Sutton. The actress last appeared on the daytime drama series in November 2022.
In the newest issue of Soap Opera Digest, on newsstands now, Samms teases what’s to come with her latest stint, which finds her character in Venezuela looking to rescue her son Ethan from a “sticky situation” with support from Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner).
“As it turns out, they’re a very good team,” says Samms of how well Felicia and Holly seemingly work together. “You’ll see that the scenes are both funny and dramatic and I think that’s one thing that ‘General Hospital” strives for, which is to have both humor and high-stakes drama. It’s a great, great story and again, very fast-paced.”
Speaking of her return to the canvas, Samms notes that she’s back in the fold because of the fans. “That’s who we’re doing this for; everything we do is for them, and their enthusiasm and support is what motivates me,” reveals the actress of her reasons for returning to the series. “I feel I have to get it right, to entertain them; that’s what absolutely motivates me. There’s absolutely no other reason to do it! They have consistently been kind to me, consistently enthusiastic and encouraging and very vocal, and I’m very grateful.”
