In an interview in the most recent issue of Soap Opera Digest available on newsstands now Kate Mansi explains that she wanted Abigail to face her fears and keep going. “I think the story we have to tell here is peaceful. It’s like Abigail is making peace with her demons and the fact that maybe she will always be dealing with whether Ben is there or not.”
