Early this afternoon, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that daytime's number one drama, "The Young and the Restless," has put another former "All My Children" star on contract to join Genoa City's ranks. This happens just several weeks after wooing the ABC Daytime drama's acclaimed and long-time casting director, Judy Blye Wilson. The CBS drama and Wilson have snatched up one of Wilson's most popular Pine Valley finds, Melissa Claire Egan. Beginning on November 11, Egan will debut in the contract role of mystery woman Chelsea.
Daytime Confidential reports that long-time "All My Children" casting director Judy Blye Wilson has decided to move on to CBS' "The Young and the Restless." The report indicates that Wilson had hoped to remain on the soap she has spent twenty years casting but the production company that licensed "AMC," Prospect Park, failed to reach out to her.
