Carol Burnett to Reprise Role on Soap Opera as Part of Farewell to Landmark Show

Jun 24, 2011  •  Post A Comment

One of the biggest fans of "All My Children," Emmy Award-winning star Carol Burnett, will return to the ABC soap opera one last time to reprise her role as Verla Grubbs.

Burnett first appeared on the show in 1983, introducing Grubbs as Langley Wallingford’s long-lost daughter. Burnett returned in 1995 for the 25th anniversary episode, as well as the 25th anniversary prime-time special for the soap opera. She turned up again 10 years later to mark the show’s 35th anniversary with another special appearance.

Speaking of the comedienne’s final visit to "AMC," Julie Hanan Carruthers, executive producer, said in a statement, "It is our honor and pleasure to welcome back Carol Burnett to Pine Valley. Verla Grubbs is a beloved member of the ‘All My Children’ family and we look forward to reprising her character."

Burnett is slated to appear in a few episodes in September, near the end of the run for the show. ABC announced in April that it was canceling the long-running soap.

  1. I love Tyrion Lannister. Peter Dinklage performs really amazing in game of thrones. He is small, but he presents a way he is attractive and cunning. Personally, I think there is some sad thoughts deep in Tyrion’s mind. He loves his family but his father hates him because of her mother’s death when gave birth to him. More, his father and brother plan the thing for him to prostitute and ruin love for him because the girl he first falls in love with is proved to be a prostitute. Then he speaks something to Jon Snow, the bastard son of Lord Eddard, which shows his wisdom and bitter feelings in his heart. Anyway, Peter is amazing in this show. I love him!
