AMC Taps New Bianca
An AMC rep confirms that Christina Bennett Lind has been hired to succeed Eden Riegel (Heather, Y&R) as Bianca Montgomery. The daytime newcomer will first air on June 14. In confirming the show's intention to recast, Co-Head Writer Donna Swajeski told Digest, "She is Erica's daughter and she is the moral compass of the show. We are very sad not to have , but that character will live on and will be a part of the show."

Riegel recently told Digest, "If they get a really great actress to come in, then they can take Bianca in a new direction or explore new parts of her. I would be excited to watch that because I care about the show so much. I also think it's important that there be a gay character on that canvas.... I would be cheering along with the fans about a recast and some great Bianca story."
