More good news from the set of the soon-to-be shuttered All My Children: Eva La Rue, who played Dr. Maria Santos Grey on the sudser, will return to Pine Valley on July 19 for several episodes. She joins Josh Duhamel, who also closed a deal to reprise his AMC role in August.

La Rue’s character was best known for her romance with Edmund Grey (John Callahan). Maria was last seen in 2010, when she left to reunite her family in California.

La Rue was nominated for a Daytime Emmy award for her AMC role. She co-stars on CBS’ CSI Miami.
