Legendary Carol Burnett will reprise her role as Verla Grubbs on ALL MY CHILDREN for a few episodes to air in September, ABC has announced.
Burnett's Grubbs first appeared in Pine Valley in 1983 as the long-lost daughter of Langley Wallingford, played by the late Louis Edmonds. The comedian/actress has been playing Grubbs on and off for years. In 1984, she teamed up with Elizabeth Taylor in an AMC scene, and most recently Burnett played Grubbs again for the show's 35th Anniversary episode in 2005.
ABC says in a release that Burnett "will now play Verla Grubbs one last time" opposite Susan Lucci (Erica Kane), and Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt).
