UPDATE 3:25 PM: Prospect Park has announced that Eden Riegel will reprise her Emmy-winning role as Bianca Montgomery as a cameo guest arc in the online revival of the ABC daytime drama All My Children.

PREVIOUS: Prospect Park‘s The Online Network announced today that Julia Barr will reprise her role as Brooke English in the online revival of the cancelled ABC daytime drama, the character for which she earned two Daytime Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actress. She joins previously announced cast members Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard), Debbi Morgan (Dr. Angela Hubbard), Vincent Irizarry (Dr. David Hayward), Lindsay Hartley (Cara Martin), Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin Castillo), Jill Larson (Opal Cortlandt), Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater). Additional casting details will be announced in the coming weeks.

IMO, ER is completely overrated.

She wasn't good on Y&R, but the character didn't suit her. She was iconic on AMC and deserves any praise she received. I have never heard anyone saying she's a top notch amazing actress. She nailed the big storylines she was given. She's a pretty big get for AMC, IMO though. Even if its just for a drive-by. It opens up her return for future storylines and that must be in their plans because I think they could have gotten the most recent Bianca to sign on permanently. I guess they didn't want Bianca without Erica, but they're going to have Miranda. I'm really not sure what the vision is for AMC, but the most recent news they've dropped has all been good.

I just find it strange that they're going to heavily focus on Miranda (not that they said that, I'm assuming so) but Erica isn't around and Bianca won't be either and Kendall won't be around for a while. IDK. It's odd to me. I mean, we all know it's because Susan and Alicia aren't available right now but still ... strange.

I'm a huge Eden Riegel fan. Heck, I'm literally the one person on the entire planet that enjoyed her run as Heather on Young and the Restless.

So I was a bit surprised to read that this will just be a short little cameo. Then again, before Christina Bennett Lind was hired to play Bianca, that is pretty much all we were getting from Riegel.

I don't think any of the Kane women will be a big pressence on All My Children 2.0. And without Tad and Jake Martn [the Martins!], I'm not sure what the core of this show will be.

Bianca was an iconic and groundbreaking character. ER was ugghhh. IMO, the last Bianca was by far the best and my favorite.

If it's Eden Riegel who doesn't want to return fulltime on AMC, then they should've brought Christina Bennett Lind back fulltime. If it's not Riegel then Prospect Park is stupid for not putting Bianca on fulltime. She should be a fulltime character as should her partner, whom should be Marissa if not then maybe Reese.

Isn't Bennett Lind doing a play? As much as CBL probably would have jumped to do it, maybe they went with Reigel, who is possibly immediately available, and IS considered a name, as much as I prefer CBL's version.

I'll never deny that Riegel is the most defined Bianca. She took the character above and beyond, and really made her a core character on the show. Personally, I liked Lind better as Bianca.

Yeah, I'd rather CBL have returned. She at least wanted to be there full-time.
