Greta Von Amberg is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Julianne Morris from 1998-2002.


When Bo Brady went to New Orleans to find out about Hope Brady's past there, he met a scarred young woman who became known as the 'Swamp Girl'. It was soon learned that this Swamp Girl had taken Hope's place on the Cruise of Deception many years ago, and it was her that the Salemnites had seen 'die' as Hope. She developed feelings for Bo, and knew that Billie Reed's story about how baby Georgia had died wasn't quite kosher. She returned with Bo to Salem, and soon began a relationship with a younger man, Eric Brady. Their relationship fizzled when she realized he was cheating on her with ex-love Nicole Walker. With her mother's death confirmed, Greta had to take her rightful place as Princess, but in order to do so, she and Austin Reed had to go through the virtual Garden of Eden, where they faced enemies like Witch-Sami Brady, Princess Gina Von Amberg, Curtis Reed, and Satan. Back in the real world now, Greta has decided she wants Austin for herself...and will do anything she has to get him, even if it isn't quite ethical.

Greta eventually decided that Austin wasn't for her, and set her sights on her new friend, Jack Deveraux, until he told her he was gay (he was trying to let her down easy, and it just snowballed). Greta was disappointed, but soon decided that it would be enough for her to be good friends with Jack. Not only that, but she became good friends with his wife, Jennifer Horton. Unfortunately, once Greta learned that Jack never had been gay, she decided her time in Salem was at an end, and left town. Although Greta knew her father's identity, she never revealed it on-screen, except to state that it was not John Black.
