Samantha Elizabeth Giles (born 2 July 1971 in Maidstone) is an English actress, probably best known for playing Bernice Blackstock in Emmerdale (1998–2002 and 2004 and returned to the role in 2012, a role which earned her a TV Quick Award for Best Actress and a nomination for a National Television Awards for Most Popular Actress (both in 2000), and Sally Boothe in Where the Heart Is (2003–2005). Giles stated that she left Emmerdale as it was too much of a commute to her home.
In December 2007, it was announced that Giles was to join the cast of the Channel 4 teen soap Hollyoaks in 2008 as Valerie Holden, a role that was taken over from actress Jacqueline Leonard. She has since left Hollyoaks on maternity leave, written out as moving to Spain. However, she returned in July 2010, and left again in August 2010.
In March 2016, she appeared on Big Star's Little Star with her daughter Eve.
