Rebecca Budig Is In! (ABC.com)

We hear casting rumors all the time here at Soaps.com, but it looks like a few rumored AMC casting changes are actually true! Soaps.com has learned that three familiar faces are likely to return to Pine Valley early in 2008.

UPDATE!!

The first rumor – that Rebecca Budig is returning – is TRUE!

It is official this morning – Rebecca Budig is in as Greenlee and Sabine Singh is out. Soaps.com has learned that the changeover will happen in January. Sabine will last air on January 15th and Rebecca will resume the role on January 16th!

Rebecca Budig originated the Greenlee character in 1999 and the role made her a household name.

Budig was nominated for two Emmy Awards and won a Soap Opera Digest award for her portrayal. Rebecca left the role in 2005 to pursue other projects. She has since appeared in made-for-television movies like “The Perfect Child” and shows such as “CSI”.

Earlier this year Sabine Singh brought Greenlee back to Pine Valley, but fans were slow to accept the newcomer in the fan-favorite role. Now, many fans have accepted the new face of Greenlee. Some are concerned that another change in the character will ruin Greens completely.

Fans are divided on the return of Rebecca. Many feel she is the only Greenlee, however a lot of fans have enjoyed Sabine’s portrayal of the character and say they will miss her.
