Huge casting news, soap fans. Former All My Children actress Eden Riegel is joining the cast of The Young and the Restless.
Eden -- who teased fans with the news yesterday on her Twitter feed -- will be taking over the role of Genoa City's hottest A.D.A., Heather Stevens, according to CBS Soaps in Depth. Vail Bloom has played the part since 2007.
CBS has now confirmed Eden's casting, releasing the following statement:
"The role of 'Heather' has been re-cast with EDEN RIEGEL. Many of you may know her from her Emmy Award-winning role as 'Bianca' on AMC. Eden will start the week of March 15th."
A little background on what the one-time Bianca Montgomery has to look forward to as Heather: AWESOME dad Paul Williams; some sordid history with Y&R's baddest guy, Adam Newman; and a whole lot of serious crimes to try. Because for a small town in Wisconsin, GC's got some felons.
We can't wait to see Eden take on a role so different from Binks!
What do you think of the recast?
