Beth Ehlers ImageThe secret is out. As Beth Ehlers herself admits, the actress is coming to All My Children.

"I can't wait to start working!" Ehlers told SOAPnet.com. "I haven't acted in a few weeks. I need to act!"

After leaving Guiding Light and the famous character of Harley earlier this year, Beth will be playing an entirely new role: Taylor McBride, a soldier just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. She first airs August 5.

"Taylor is in town to give a Bronze Medal to Frankie [also a vet, played by Cornelius Smith, Jr.] She's biding her time until her next tour," Ehlers said, revealing a few All My Children spoilers. "She's lifetime military ... someone that likes rules and boundaries. [She looks at things as] This is right and this is wrong."

The multiple-Emmy Award nominee couldn't be more excited to take on the new challenge:

"I started playing Harley when I was a little girl and now I'm a grown person. It's been a long time since had a character I could start all the way from scratch with."
