So just what will bring the character of Amy Wilson back to The Young and the Restless some 18 years later? That is the question on longtime fans of the number one soap this morning, when the news broke via Soap Opera Digest that Julianne Morris Poloha is returning to the role! She will air in November and begins taping today.
Julianne originally played the role on Y&R from 1994-1996. She then went on to star on NBC’s Days of our Lives as Greta Von Amberg for four years from 1998-2002, and then took a very long time off raising a family, having three children with her husband, actor Kristoffer Polaha whom she married in 2003.
In story on Y&R, Amy Wilson was best friends with Sharon Collins (Sharon Case) and after Amy’s fling with Nick (Joshua Morrow), and Nick turned his affections toward Sharon, Amy took up with Matt Clark (Eddie Cibrian)! Later, Matt was shot by Amy after he raped her. Amy at the time had suffered terrible mental trauma from the incident, and until she came forward, Nick was blamed for Matt’s murder!
