Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in a Virginia suburb, Eden Riegel began acting at the tender age of 7, joining a 26-city tour of Les Misérables, playing Young Cosette. After the tour, Riegel took on the same role on Broadway.

After many years in Manhattan filled with commercials, TV and a few movies, she applied to college. She joined the student body at Harvard, but not before filming a small role for the movie American Pie (1999). At Harvard, Riegel developed a love of politics, which led her to an internship at the White House under President Clinton at the end of her sophomore year. That same summer, she landed the role of Bianca on AMC. She took a break from Harvard (although she does want to finish her degree someday), and packed her bags for Pine Valley.
