“All My Children” wants to bring lesbian character of Bianca back but Eden Riegel will not be playing her

BY GREG HERNANDEZ

This has got to be frustrating for All My Children fans and especially fans of the character of Bianca Montgomery and the actress who played her, Eden Riegel.

The soap tells TV Guide mag that they plan to recast the lesbian heroine who married Reese in a high-profile wedding that made soap history. But soon after, Bianca and Riegel were gone. Now the actress has been hired by CBS soap The Young and the Restless to play D.A. Heather Stevens. Her first episodes will air in mid-April.

“Bianca is so important we want her back on the canvass,” says an AMC rep. “We will spend time finding the right actress, then create a story.”

In an interview with TV Guide, Eden says of her new gig: “I’m excited to be at a place that’s really excited about me.”

Q. Meaning AMC wasn’t excited? When the show relocated to LA, where you now live, we just assumed you guys would work out a deal since it was so geographically convenient.

A. I understand the timing for this is a little odd, what with AMC moving here. And I do love that show! I grew up there and had an amazing experience but I’m an actress. I like playing different characters, especially somebody who’s a D.A. and sexy and conniving. I’m excited to look at those parts of myself and express them through this character. I couldn’t turn it down.
