The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Melissa Claire Egan Opens Up About Chelsea’s Biggest Challenges To Date
Because of her stroke, Chelsea has been confined to a wheelchair and unfortunately, she can’t communicate in the same way that she has in the past. For Melissa, she’s certainly had to learn how to keep her body sitting still for a very long time in front of the cameras. But, it hasn’t always been easy.
She said, “You just have to and then you get used to being focused on getting into the mindset of somebody who’s very aware of what’s going on but can’t express herself. In the beginning, they didn’t even want me frowning, so you just have to learn how to be expressive with your eyes. They’ll have pages of monologues because I’m not speaking back, but luckily they are so talented and make it look easy because what they have to do is so difficult.”

With that said, Melissa has also opened up about the most challenging part of this current storyline. Believe it or not, she says that it isn’t all that difficult to keep a straight face, even though there have been times where she wanted to laugh. Thankfully, Chelsea says that has not happened once.
She added, “It’s very serious because Chelsea is in a bad place, so there’s never been a time where I think it’s funny and I can’t stop giggling!”
Thankfully, Chelsea will be back to her old self – and her feet – in no time. But of course, there are going to be many twist and turns before that even happens!
