CBS Soaps In Depth has announced and shown the first image of daytime newcomer Jessica Heap (pictured here) who has been cast in the role of River’s daughter, Eden on Y&R. As many recall, Vanessa Marano, last played the sister Michael Baldwin never knew he had! Well now The Young and the Restless has decided to slightly SORAS Eden and she is set to re-emerge onto the Genoa City canvas on the Tuesday June 28th episode!
Jessica Heap’s credits include the lead in the TV movie Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal — based on the real-life scandal in which a fed-up coach resigned after dealing with the clique’s lewd behavior! One interesting note: Heap hails from Baton Rouge, and as many also know, Christian LeBlanc (Michael) hails from New Orleans. Like sister, like brother? Make sure to watch to find out what the new Eden has in store for the Baldwin family!
