The Emmy-nominated actress took over the role of Chelsea Benson from previous portrayer Mandy Musgrave in 2005. Chelsea would later change her last name to Brady upon discovering her true lineage. She first emerged onto the scene as a selfish, rude, mean-spirited young woman, but eventually changed her tune when Nick Fallon came into her life. Unfortunately, their on-again, off-again romance fizzled when she fell for Dr. Daniel Jonas. Nowadays, she's been getting closer to Max, but still hasn't had much of a storyline lately.
No final airdate has been confirmed yet, but I'll keep you posted. Best of luck to Rachel in her future endeavors down the road. You can keep up with Rachel on her official blog, as she updates it periodically and has obviously proven that she's a true Hollywood class act, wise beyond her years.
