THERE'S A NEW GIRL (ON GIRL) IN TOWN ON ALL MY CHILDREN
Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) has had just about every major storyline imaginable in her 300 years on All My Children and in 2001 her daughter, Bianca, came out of the closet. The storyline was critically acclaimed by media as the first out, gay lead character on a daytime show. The actress who played Bianca, Emmy winner Eden Riegel, left the show last June after her character married her girlfriend Reese and moved to France. Well it seems the powers that be are ready to bring Bianca back, and with Riegel now on Young & the Restless, they recast Bianca with a young, up-and-coming star named Christina Bennett Lind (pictured). Primarily a stage actress, this is Lind's first major television role. What a great way to start!!! I can't wait to see where the show is going to take the character. Maybe Christina will continue the Emmy winning streak for the storyline. The actress who played Reese, Emmy winner Erica Braun, is also in talks to return to AMC.
