‘All My Children’ September Casting Notes
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you are a fan of “All My Children” you have probably given up on both keeping count and keeping track of all the returns racking up to help guide the 41-year old daytime drama’s exit off ABC Daytime. Don’t fret, Soap Opera Network is here to help guide you.
Carol Burnett return as Verla Grubbs beginning on Tuesday, September 6. For two episodes, Burnett brings the eccentric daughter of Langley Wallingford (Louis Edmonds) back to Pine Valley to stir up trouble for Opal Cortlandt (Jill Larson).
Thanks to the reach of Facebook, the hard-to-find Jason Kincaid returns as Sam Brady next week, as well . Kincaid played the object of both Opal (then played by Dorothy Lyman) and Verla’s affections in the 1980s. Verla won Round One in the battle for Sam’s heart. If Opal and her closest friends have anything to say about it, Opal will knock Verla out of the ring in Round Two.
