TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan isreporting All My Children's search for a new Bianca is over. AMC has snagged Christina Bennett Lindto play the role vacated by Daytime Emmy award-winner and fan favorite Eden Riegel. Executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers says,
For now, Bianca's lady love Reese (Tamara Braun) isn't making the trip back to Pine Valley and is remaining in Paris with their children. Carruthers states,
Eden brought an integrity and honest innocence to the role that was very tough to match. We turned the earth upside 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.
We do want to continue playing the Reese-Bianca relationship because it was so unique, says Carruthers. I have talked to Tamara about coming back, but I don’t know schedules and availability and such. I don’t want to recast Reese, so it’s up in the air at the moment
