Big, BIG casting news -- Bianca Montgomery is returning to All My Children. Christina Bennett Lind has been cast in the role of Erica Kane's youngest daughter. She'll first air on June 14th.
Christina takes over for Bianca's longtime portrayer, Eden Riegel (currently playing Heather on The Young and the Restless). "I can only hope I do half of what Eden did with the part," Christina -- a New Yorker making the move to AMC's L.A. home -- told TV Guide. "She played it with amazing grace and dignity. Now I need to breathe my own life into it."
"Christina oozes goodness, and we really needed that for Bianca," AMC executive producer Julie Carruthers added. "When Christina came in to read for the part, she was Bianca."
News of Erica's plane crash (yes, for real; he's pulling an Oceanic 815, minus the smoke monster. Or maybe not -- you'll see) causes Binks to return to the homestead. Reese, her wife -- formerly played by Tamara Braun -- won't be joining her ... yet. The show hopes Tamara will someday be able to reprise the role.
Are you excited to see Bianca return to the show? What do you hope is in store?
