Last month, The Young and the Restless put out a casting call for the role of "Carmen," a businesswoman whose storyline would be tied to Jack Abbott. Now, a few weeks later, Carmen has a last name - and her job title has become a little more clear.
Ramirez will play Carmen Mesta, a public relations director for Jabot. In a way, the role takes Ramirez full circle: her character on General Hospital was at one time a model for Deception, a cosmetics company.
In addition to her work on General Hospital, Ramirez appeared on the short-lived but critically acclaimed primetime series, Miracles.
During her run on General Hospital, Ramirez earned an ALMA nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series and also an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series.
Ramirez taped her first scenes on April 4th. Those scenes will hit the airwaves on May 8th.
