According to an exclusive interview with TermEmma Samms will return to the show as Holly sometime in October. It will be two full years since fans have seen Holly.
There’s a good reason for Samms’ long absence from the show; she contracted Covid-19 in 2020 and subsequently struggled with long-term symptoms of Covid. But now the actress is in fighting shape and ready to return to the role that made her famous, just in time to mark a major milestone in Holly’s “General Hospital” story. “I can’t believe it’s been 40 years since I first appeared in General Hospital and that I got to play the wonderful character Holly Sutton again. Nobody cares more about what has happened to her since we saw her two years ago being held captive by a mysterious villain than me!” she told the press office.
Since all of Holly’s friends and family think her life has been taken again by the scythe-wielding death, they will be shocked when she shows up. But leave it to Holly to make a great dramatic exit.
