THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS casting director Judy Blye Wilson has made her first official deal with a former colleague from ALL MY CHILDREN: Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Melissa Claire Egan, who played Annie on the ABC soap, has been cast in the contract role of Chelsea, a mysterious woman who shows up in town... and has a connection to Billy's arrest in Burma.
While serving as AMC's casting director, Wilson gave Emmy nominee Egan her big break as the slightly psychotic Annie Novak -- as well as giving Emmy winner Billy Miller (Billy) his first soap role as Annie's equally-crazy brother, Richie. (In a shocking plot twist, Annie killed Richie with a tire iron.)
Look for Egan to make her debut on Friday, November 11.
