Eden Riegel
Pine Valley Presence
At A Glance
Born and raised outside of Washington, D.C., Riegel landed her first major acting role in Les Miserables as Young Cosette. She then went on to tour with the show, traveling to 26 U.S. cities before appearing on Broadway, where she played Cosette for an additional two years.

While in New York City, Eden made her mark as a working actress on- and off-Broadway, including an appearance in the Will Rogers Follies. Soon after her stint on Broadway, she began to branch out into television and film, when she was cast in the recurring role of Meghan Cooper on New York Undercover and also guest-starred on Law & Order. Many may also remember Riegel from the film American Pie, where she played Sarah, an innocent high school sophomore experiencing the loud and lewd antics of teenage boys. She appeared on ABC's All My Children from 2000 to 2010, playing Bianca Montgomery, the lesbian daughter of diva Erica Kane.

In addition to acting, education has always been a top priority for Eden, who is currently on leave from Harvard University, where she is studying political and social theory. Prior to joining AMC in 2000, Riegel had an opportunity to explore her political interests by serving as an intern at the White House.
