Samantha Kate Winward has been “Sammy” as long as I can remember, which isn’t very, since she’s only thirty-two. Then again, she’s been in front of one camera or another for half her life: in 2001, she signed up for the long haul on the British soap Emmerdale, a student first seen in detention with a boy she subsequently marries. Twice.

Apart from not quite a year’s worth of maternity leave, she stayed on Emmerdale until 2014, and was brutally killed off that winter in a scene with her brother-in-law, whom she’d been seeing on the side.
