Rachel Melvin was born in Elmhurst, Illinois, but raised in Phoenix, Arizona. During high school, she choreographed Mountain Pointe Dance Company concerts and was part of the Southwest Valley Youth Orchestra where she played and studied violin. In 2003, after graduating high school, she picked up and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting — but not before almost accepting a full scholarship to Arizona State University. With her parents' support, she made the decision to postpone college.

As it turned out, moving to L.A. was the right decision. Aside from landing the role of Chelsea on DAYS, she appeared on primetime shows JACK & BOBBY, SUMMERLAND, and 8 SIMPLE RULES. Her talents aren’t just onscreen, either — Melvin worked in theater as well, receiving remarkable ratings at the Clear Lake Drama Festivals in Group Acting, Improvisation, Mime, Storytelling and Lip Sync.

Taking on the role of Chelsea was a challenge, says Melvin. “I’m always the girl next door. How am I going to be edgier?” she wondered. Clearly she found a way, though she claims, “She’s [Chelsea] still a huge challenge.”

In her free time, Melvin plays a red electric violin, and has been developing a children’s book. She is also into art. “I love scrapbooking. I love decorating. I love art," rattles off the actress. "I'm a very crafty person."
