The Young and the Restless
In June 2011, it was announced that Heap had been cast in the role of Eden Baldwin, a character previously portrayed by Vanessa Marano. Of her first day, Heap said: "When I worked my first day, I was shooting two episodes, all back to back. So it was a lot of dialogue, a lot of material and it really helped having someone there who was like 'Here's what's happening,' as it was going on. For me, I'm just loving it, because I’m learning from people like Christian and these other great actors and I’m learning new skills." After a year in the role, it was announced that Heap was to exit the soap. The actress later confirmed her departure on Twitter, saying she'd completed filming and described her experience on the show as "an unforgettable ride".
