Character portrayal

The role of Sam has been portrayed by Playboy's April 1997 Playmate of the Month and the first champion on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, Kelly Monaco, since October 1, 2003. In 2006, Monaco was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role. Sam is the biological daughter of Alexis Davis who had Sam as a teen and was forced to give her up by Sam's grandfather, Mikkos Cassadine. Sam was adopted by Cody McCall and Evelyn Bass. Cody and Evelyn's older son, Danny McCall, was mentally handicapped. Evelyn decided that she didn't want Sam, so she took her son Danny and left. Sam was raised by Cody, who taught her how to salvage and run cons. When Sam found out about her mother and brother, she went to find them. In an accident, Danny burned his mother's house down with her inside. Sam continued to run cons as her father taught her while using the money to take care of Danny. She married several wealthy men in order to scam them out of their money, and provide a life for herself and her brother. Sam's biological father is unknown, the only thing known about him, he never knew Alexis was pregnant with Sam. In August 2009, fans were shocked by a casting call for the character. Despite rumors and speculation, Monaco's co-stars Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) have denied that she is departing from the show.[1]

Storylines

Sam arrived in Port Charles on October 1, 2003, and quickly teamed up with Jasper "Jax" Jacks to look for the 5 lucky cards of the Dead Man's hand that would save Jax's father's life. When Jax's father dies, however, there is friction because Sam had also pursued the cards for herself. Jax and Sam consummate their relationship, but they break up when Jax discovers Sam's role in tampering his car. Sam begins a sexual relationship with Sonny Corinthos, from which she soon gets pregnant and makes an enemy of Sonny's wife, Carly.

Jason Morgan

Sonny's lieutenant Jason Morgan asks her if he could pose as the baby's father so that Sonny and Carly could stay together, but Sonny soon learns that Sam is carrying his child. The two become close and almost marry, but Sam backs out. During the Port Charles Hotel fire, Sam sleeps with Jax, causing friction between her and Sonny, so she goes to live with Jason since he was posing as her baby's father. Jason and Carly also protect Sam from her abusive ex-boyfriend Nico. When Sonny's newly-discovered daughter, Kristina Corinthos, is in need of stem cells from Sam's unborn child, Sam initially refuses but goes into labor after a confrontation with Kristina's mother Alexis, causing her baby to be stillborn. Jason and Sam had decided to name her daughter Lila Morgan after Jason's late grandmother Lila Morgan Quartermaine.

Sam and Jason admit their love for one another, and after getting engaged in January 2005, they become foster parents of sorts when Sam agrees to care for the child of a young mother named Bridget. Jason names the baby Hope, but Bridget decides that she wants her baby back. To avoid a court battle, Jason decides Hope should be returned to her mother. Sam is hurt and angry at this decision, but she is there for Jason when he loses his memory in 2005. Sam convinces Jason to undergo a controversial treatment administered by his old girlfriend, Dr. Robin Scorpio. He and Sam fall in love all over again and he proposes to her a second time before he begins his successful treatment.

During an encephalitis epidemic, Alexis Davis receives an antidote instead of Sam's brother, Danny McCall. Before he dies, Danny tells Sam how glad he was that their parents "chose her." Sam is angry and blames Alexis for her brother's death. However, DNA tests reveal that she was adopted and Danny was not her biological brother. She and Jason find records indicating that Sam was born to a 16-year-old Alexis, who Sam already blames for all of her recent problems. After Sam takes a bullet meant for Jason, he confronts Alexis telling her that Sam is her daughter and that she's dying. Alexis comes to Sam's hospital room and they make amends. Alexis forces Jason to break up with Sam for her own good, leading Sam to arrange to have Alexis walk in on Sam sleeping with Ric Lansing, Alexis's husband. Instead, Jason sees them through the window, and returns home where Elizabeth Spencer shows up. They have a one-night stand and she becomes pregnant. Sam and Jason reconcile. During a hostage crisis at the Metro Court, Jason learns that he is the father of Elizabeth's son, Jake. Pressured by Elizabeth to keep it a secret, he does not tell Sam. Sam eventually learns about Jake's paternity. While Jason is awaiting trial for murder, Sam witnesses Jake being kidnapped but chooses not to intervene. Sam visits Jason and breaks up with him, citing his lies and emotional unfaithfulness as her reasons.

Lucky Spencer

Sam hires Elizabeth's husband, Lucky Spencer, as her bodyguard so she can seduce him, sleeping with him on September 17, 2007.[2] Sam and Lucky continue their relationship while she is stalked by Diego Alcazar, masked as the Text Message Killer. Sam survives, but her relationship with Lucky ends when she begins working with mobster Andrei Karpov. In November 2008, she helps Jason save Jake from Karpov's associates, and Elizabeth ends her relationship with Jason. After a hospital crisis in February 2009, Lucky and Sam had a very civil break-up and decided to remain friends. When her half sister Kristina causes Sonny's latest wife Claudia Zacchara to crash her car and lose her unborn child, Kristina and her half brother Michael Corinthos run away to Mexico. Sam and Jason track the siblings, but Jason is shot by Jerry Jacks. Sam helps her former lover heal, and the two find the teens and return to Port Charles. When Jason and his protege Damian Spinelli find themselves entrapped by the FBI, Sam manages to destroy the evidence against her friends. Jason, in turn, helps Sam and Spinelli set up a private investigation firm.

Spending time with Jason

Jason and Spinelli find the proof they need to bring Claudia down on Michael's shooting. When he brings the evidence to Sonny, Claudia is brought down in front of Port Charles by Sonny for getting Michael shot. She kidnaps Carly, who is pregnant and goes into labor just as Claudia escapes. Jason heads out and bursts into a cabin with a woman and two children. He heads back to his penthouse to regroup. Jason and Sam go looking for them, but Michael finds them first and kills Claudia. Sam takes Carly and her newborn baby to the hospital, while Jason helps Michael deal with killing Claudia. Jason and Sam exchanged "I love yous" right before Christmas. Sam spent Christmas with her mother and sisters while Jason was alone.

Sam, Lulu and Carly are taken by the artist Franco. Jason saves Carly first. Franco finally confesses where he is holding Sam and Lulu Spencer. Jason calls Dante Falconeri to save Lulu, while he goes after Sam. Sam was never in actual danger, but Jason feels bad when it is believed that the only bomb Franco set has killed Lulu and Dante. Thankfully they survive and Jason is now in arguments with Sonny on how to handle Claudia's death and Franco since he left town giving Jason a warning that he will kill for every person Jason kills.
