AMC Recasts Bianca
It was only a matter of time before this happened, All My Children has recast the role of beloved heroine Bianca Montgomery. Eden Riegel, the most identifiable actress to play the role has moved on to a role on The Young And The Restless which put AMC in a difficult position. Newcomer Christina Bennett Lind has landed the coveted role, and is receiving advance praise from executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers
"Christina oozes goodness and we really needed that for Bianca, Eden brought an integrity and honest innocence to the role that was very tough to match. We turned the earth [upside-down] going through the candidates. When Christina came in to read for the part, she was Bianca. I think it’ll be a very easy transition for the audience." Bianca's wife Reese will not be returning to town with her, however the door will be left open either daytime superstar Tamra Braun to return or for the show to recast that role as well.
