Emma Samms

Emma Samms has been unable to return to General Hospital since the pandemic hit. The actress contracted COVID 19 and she’s still recovering from the battle. She has avoided her return though she has told  Soap Opera Digest, “I desperately want to come back.” The show has been patient with her while she recovers as she does tend to lose her voice at the moment. Hopefully she will soon heal and be back in Port Charles.
