Rachel Melvin

Rachel Melvin (born February 9, 1985 in Elmhurst, Illinois) graduated from Mountain Pointe High School in 2003 in Phoenix, Ariz., where she was raised for much of her life.

She landed her first acting job in the independent film, "Boo" and is best known for her role as Chelsea Benson on the Days of Our Lives since May 2005.

The character was introduced as Abigail Deveraux's (Ashley Benson) BFF. Chelsea was adopted by the Bensons as an infant and they raised her until their deaths in a car accident.

DNA evidence proved that Chelsea was in fact Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) and Billie Reed's (Julie Pinson) long-thought-stillborn daughter Georgia.

Months before she took over the role of Chelsea, Melvin appeared in five episodes as Georgia LaMarque, a French girl whom Bo and Billie had been falsely led to believe was their daughter.

She sings, and plays the electric violin. A children's book is currently being developed by Melvin. She is a supporter of the American Diabetes Association for children, as well as many animal charities.

Rachel Melvin currently lives in Los Angeles, California.

** UPDATE: Melvin was cast in Heroes on season four.

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Aiden, why are you doing this?


Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
