According to Soap Opera Digest on Wednesday, a new casting call has gone out for the role, which gives these details on the character: “She comes from a loving home, despite her father lack of consistency in her life. Abigail looks innocent and young but can often seems more mature in essence than her 26 years because of the difficulties she’s experienced. She’s made plenty of mistakes in her life, but she tries to learn from them and has compassion for others. She’s fiercely loyal and protective of her family, and she has a spark and youthful joy that endears her to everyone she meets.”
The casting call also says they are looking for the new Abigail to start taping at the end of April, and that the search is continuing, even though the current cast is on hiatus till April 4th.
