"Julia Barr will return to the beloved serial drama All My Children, set to debut later this spring," Prospect Park said in a statement. "Barr will reprise her role as Brooke English, the character for which she has garnered Two Daytime Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actress along with eight nominations."
Barr joined the cast of All My Children in 1976. She exited the show in 1980, but returned two years later. She remained with the show for the next 24 years, before being written out of the show. She returned in 2010 to help usher David Canary (Adam and Stuart Chandler) off the canvas, and also rejoined the soap for its ABC series finale in 2011.
Earlier this month, sources told soapcentral.com that Canary will also be featured in AMC's reboot.
Barr joins a handful of other stars already confirmed for AMC's reboot. The series is also casting and recasting several other roles in advance of its return to production, which begins on February 25.
