With a slew of soap weddings under her belt, a run at playing “crazy” and nearly a decade of daytime experience between “The Young and the Restless” and “All My Children,” a back-from-the-dead storyline is no big thang for “Y&R’s” <strong>Melissa Claire Egan </strong>(Chelsea Lawson). Except for when the back-from-the-dead character happens to be her alter ego’s kid-killing husband, and that same guy’s real-life recast happens to be one of the most talked about soap events of the year! So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by <strong>Justin Hartley</strong>? <em>Soap Opera Network</em> caught up with the actress to find out!
“The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Lawson) always seems to be smiling (off screen, anyway!), but her beaming grin is particularly bright at the moment: She wed sweetheart Matt Katrosar over the weekend!
“The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman) may be busy creating drama in Genoa City and preparing for her upcoming real life nuptials to fiancé Matt Katrosar, but she’s still managing to squeeze in time to meet fans and simultaneously save sick animals!
You’d think that because “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman; ex-Annie Chandler, “All My Children”) has been an onscreen bride more times than she can count on one hand, her motto would be “matrimony, schmatrimony.” But when Soap Opera Network caught up with the blushing bride-to-be, that wasn’t the case at all! She was more than thrilled to open up about her upcoming big day and why her fiancé, Matt Katrosar, was able to so easily steal her heart.
