Kelly Monaco (Samantha McCall)

ABC/Yolanda Perez


Sexy, petite Kelly Monaco brings likeability and street smarts to the role of Sam McCall, which she has played since October 2003.

Kelly Monaco:

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 23, 1976, Kelly Monaco grew up participating in several sports - swimming, track, softball, and soccer, and in high school, she was active in speech, debate, and theater. After posing for Playboy in 1997, she landed a recurring role on the TV series, Baywatch, (where she also doubled in swim scenes for Carmen Electra). This was followed by the roles of Livvie/Tess on Port Charles from 1999-2003. In 2003, she joined the cast of General Hospital as con woman Samantha McCall, who quickly caught the eye of the Port Charles men, including Jax, Sonny, and Jason.

Monaco made a big splash when she won Dancing with the Stars with partner Alec Mazo in 2005. Film credits include BASEketball, Mumford, and Idle Hands. On television, she appeared on Spin City and the TV movies Late Last Night and Football Wives. For a time in 2008-2009, she worked in Las Vegas in a revue, Peep Show and commuted back to Los Angeles to tape scenes for General Hospital.

Today, Monaco lives in Los Angeles, where she keeps busy with various children's charities and senior citizen groups.
