NEW YORK -- It was late afternoon on the set of All My Children, a sprawling soundstage that occupies the third floor of an ABC compound on Manhattan's West Side, and Eden Riegel - better known to daytime television fans as Bianca Montgomery - was pacing nervously.

In a few minutes, she would tape the first scene in which Zarf, a flamboyant rock star played by Jeffrey Carlson, was going to reveal his secret to her: He was a she.

On TV All My Children airs at 1 p.m. weekdays on ABC (WMAR, Channel 2).
