So just how rich is Emma Samms as of late-2019? According to authoritative sources, this actress has a net worth of over $10 million, accumulated largely from her acting career spanning almost 40 years. She hasn’t spoken about her assets, including houses and vehicles, but she’s certainly able to support herself and her family financially.
Ethnicity and Background
As of Emma’s ethnicity, she is Caucasian, and has brown eyes and hair, which she sometimes dyes a shade or two lighter.
Looking good at events she attends, as well as having a fit figure, Samms clearly puts time and effort into the way that she presents herself. She was born into an art-oriented family, with her mother being a ballet dancer and her father owning a film equipment rental company. In addition, her grandfather G.B. Samuelson was a pioneer of British cinema.
When it comes to her formative years, Samms was raised in the Jewish tradition and religion. Just like her mother, she was a ballet dancer, until she suffered a hip injury in her teenage years.
Nonetheless, her passion for performing didn’t stop there, and she went on to pursue an acting career. The actress looks radiant and youthful despite being in the sixth decade of her life, and she even spoke about the subject of aging in an interview, stating that our society isn’t tolerant of people aging naturally. “It would be lovely if society valued kindness and charisma”, she said.
Being in the entertainment field, Samms is naturally active on social media such as Twitter and Instagram, and uses her accounts to interact with fans and promote her work.
Some of her most recent posts on the former include a photo of herself, taken at Jilly Cooper’s annual garden party. She added that the photo’s blurry, but she likes them that way. Samms often posts photos of her garden, which her followers seem to enjoy.
Samms posts photos from her private life to her Instagram page, allowing her supporters to take a sneak peek at what’s going on behind the scenes. She recently posted a photo of her daughter and her dog, with the caption reading “Chester has to cope with a lot of kisses from my daughter Micha and me”.
Emma’s followers left numerous messages, telling the actress just how adorable her daughter and pup are. Samms has also posted a photo of herself, her son and his girlfriend. “Your son is so dashing Emma. You, of course, look smashing as ever”, one fan commented.
Despite being a public figure, Emma prefers remaining secretive on some subjects, but it’s known that she’s been married three times – in 1991, the actress married businessman Bansi Nagji, however, their love was short lived and resulted in a divorce just a year later.
As of 1994, she married actor/writer Tim Dillon, but again one year into their marriage it fell apart. Her third marriage was to neuropsychologist John Holloway in 1996, but before divorcing in 2003, they produced a daughter and a son. The subsequent absence of any potential love interest from her life led media to believe that she’s single, which she hasn’t confirmed or denied. Nonetheless, she seems to be living a happy and joyful life alongside her family and pets.
Emma has been invited to pose for Playboy twice, but refused the offer both times. “The money was very tempting, it was massive. The first time I was offered it, before my children, I didn’t need to do it. The second time was after the children were born and I couldn’t do it to them. How could you do that to your kids? It would have been horrifying for them”, the actress stated in one interview. However, she did appear in a bikini on the cover of Inside Sports in 1988
Samms has had 50 acting gigs – she made her debut in 1979, when she landed a small role in “Arabian Adventure”, and then followed by working on “Yesterday’s Hero” and “Goliath Awaits”. Her rise to fame began when she was cast to play the role of Fallon Carrington Colby in “The Colbys”, and reprised the same character in “Dynasty”, described as an “iconic” ‘80s soap opera; this gave her a chance to collaborate with actors such as John Forsythe, Linda Evans, Joan Collins and Gordon Thomson.
Samms’ other prominent work includes “General Hospital”, in which she played one of the most notable roles, Holly Sutton Scorpio. As of her most recent projects, those include “Love Blossoms” and “Doctors”. Partly for her career achievements and also ‘for services to seriously and terminally ill children’, in the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honours List, Emma was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE).
Emma herself has recently been suffering from a relatively mild version of Bell’s Palsy, which paralyses facial muscles, but which she says hinders her hardly at all, and doesn’t prevent her from continuing to work.
