Veronica Redd To Reprise Her Role As Mamie Johnson On 'The Young & The Restless'

A beloved The Young & The Restless fan-favorite is slated to make her return.

As TV Insider reports, Veronica Redd will be making her highly anticipated return to Genoa City in the role of Mamie Johnson, the housekeeper for the Abbott family.

Redd, who took over the role of Mamie from Marguerite Ray, was on The Young &The Restless on and off from 1990 to 2004. In addition, Redd also returned not too long ago for the soap’s 50th anniversary celebration.

In addition to The Young & The Restless, Redd has made appearances on shows such as  The Jeffersons, Good Times and Hill Street Blues.

In an interview with Daytime Confidential timed to her last return, Redd expressed her elation at coming back to her Genoa City stomping grounds for the 50th anniversary of the show.

“It was surreal! They just called and asked if I wanted to come back! I kept thinking, “Is this real?” After about four days, I still couldn’t believe that I was back talking to The Young and the Restless, she said. “The thing is, how do you stay camera-ready? When I got on the set, it had not changed at all. Matter of fact, I get to comment on that. I also felt like I missed a lot of people who had gone on. Jerry Douglas (John Abbott) would have just been there all the time.”

No details are known about Redd’s upcoming appearances or how long her stint will be.
