Debra Philece Sampler (July 16, 1953 – July 1, 2021) was an American actress. She began her career on the soap operas Days of Our Lives as Renée DuMonde and Another World as Donna Love Hudson.[citation needed ]

In addition to her acting career, Sampler provided the voice to various characters in animated series, such as Toph Beifong in The Legend of Korra.

Sampler was born in San Angelo, Texas, on July 16, 1953. She graduated from J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas in 1971. After graduating from the University of North Texas in 1975 with a drama degree, Sampler moved to Hollywood and quickly landed guest roles in a few television movies and series, including The Incredible Hulk in season 4, episode 59 titled "Dark Side".

Sampler first made a name for herself playing Renée DuMonde on the soap Days of Our Lives. The Renee character became the focus of a major 1983 murder mystery, resulting in one of the most spectacular send-offs in daytime history. After leaving Days of our Lives in September 1983, she went on to the TV series Rituals, which ran from 1984–1985. The show also starred future soap stars Mary Beth Evans (Kayla, Days) and Jon Lindstrom (Kevin, GH), as well as veteran soap star Kin Shriner (ex-Scotty, GH; ex-Brian, B&B) and Tina Louise (Ginger from Gilligan's Island). After Rituals, Philece went on to Another World in 1986 to play Donna Love, a role she took over from originating actress Anna Stuart. She left AW in 1989 when Stuart reclaimed the role. She had a couple of guest-starring roles on TJ Hooker as Sue Ann and on Hunter as Casey.[citation needed ] She then took a sabbatical to Japan with her then-fiance. She returned to the US with a few screenplays and formed Philman Entertainment, a production company.[citation needed ]

Sampler worked as associate producer of the Los Angeles stage hit Sordid Lives by Del Shores. She performed in UPN's animated series The Incredible Hulk, as the voice of Betty Ross, replacing Genie Francis, who voiced Ross on the first six episodes. She remained pals with her former Days of Our Lives love-interest Gregg Marx (David Banning). She performed a voice-over on Real Monsters – "Ollie Ollie Oxen Free". She did a voice on Nickelodeon's Rugrats, where she played Emma (Chuckie's love interest) in the episode "He Saw, She Saw".

Sampler died from a heart attack in Los Angeles on July 1, 2021, at the age of 67, 15 days shy of her 68th birthday.
