Beginning this month, Erica Kane's daughter, Bianca Montgomery, will find her way back to Pine Valley. This time, though, things are going to be a little different.
When Bianca left town on March 19, 1998, the young girl was waging a valiant battle against anorexia nervosa. Her loved ones gathered by her side, Bianca met with a therapist to discuss why she was unable to eat. It was this storyline that helped win Susan Lucci (Erica Kane) her very first Daytime Emmy award.
On July 27th, a slightly older Bianca will make her first on-screen appearance in over two years. A new actress will assume this role, and reports indicate that Bianca will now be about 18 or 19 years of age.
Eden Riegel, a relative newcomer to daytime television, had landed the coveted role of Erica Kane's daughter. Riegel isn't new to the acting game; her works include the voice of Young Miriam in the movie, The Prince of Egypt. She's been seen in front of the camera in a 1997 edition of television's Law and Order and as Sarah in the film American Pie, as well as stints on the CBS soaps, As The World Turns and Guiding Light.
