    Happy to hear Jennifer will portray Heather. Lost interest in character with Eden portraying the role, but I think Jennifer will make a great Heather and bring the character to life again.

    This is just crazy! The cast is already bloated. Victor is on everyday and leaves just minutes each week for other cast/stories so this addition will just push others even further to the background. If tptb were capable of any balance I'd feel differently.

    I agree there cast is getting large. But I would like to see what Jennifer can bring to the table as Heather. If it didn't work out with Vail or Eden maybe Jennifer being the third actress to portray Heather can nail it. She is talented. Loved her as Gwen on ATWT. So lets see what happens.

    I think we are missing out on alot of great story lines because you keep replaying the Victor/Nicky scenario`s of who are they sleeping with now. That has really been overplayed for the last couple of years, in my opinion it would be nice to bring the new story lines to the fore front. It would be good to see a new Heather play the role but I`m not sure if there is enough room in this already bloated cast.

    Hurry back, Heather! Your Dad needs some support & love!

    I think she'll do a fine job; hopefully the writers will have her MORE SUCCESSFUL at the job than in the past.

    Yes! I also do not like Heather, who does pick these awful actors to play these awful roles it is just a waste of time. If you are going to replace someone make sure that she or he looks likes like there Father or Mother.

    I don't care where she came from, with all the beautiful, talented people out there to choose from they chose her? She's unattractive and a horrible heather. A total miss.

    What were they thinking casting her as Heather? She is a terrible actress! She is one dimensional. She's so stiff and boring. She's not even that attractive. This show is becoming a joke. I wish this went off the air instead of One Life To Live.

    Why did they drop the Heather character in the first place? The way she disgracefully was dropped and left show, it makes no sense having character back.
