In the Soap Opera Spotlight: Rachel Melvin

by at . Comments
Rachel Melvin Picture Today's soap opera star in the spotlight is Rachel Melvin.

Here are a few fun acts about the Days of Our Lives actress:

  • She's involved in the American Diabetes Association and several animal charities.
  • She moved to California after winning a $600 jackpot during a game of bingo at a casino.
  • Only starred in one high school play because she wanted to focus on dancing instead.
  • Thought about going to school to become an interior designer.
  • She and sister Jessica were huge Days of Our Lives fans in high school. Carrie and Austin were Melvin's favorite characters.

Melvin gets along very well with her co-stars, once saying to Soap Opera Digest about Darin Brooks:

“He tries to be funny, and he’s not. I try to sound smart, and I’m not. And we pretty much make sure that both of us are aware of that. You’re not funny, and I’m not smart.”
