Rachel Melvin

Before her guest spot on “House” earlier this week, Rachel Melvin was a regular on the long-running daytime soap “Days of Our Lives.” That was her first extended gig, a job that Melvin landed a short time after moving  to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Her character having been written out of the series (for now at least), Melvin is branching out into shows that come on after dark, including a brief character arc on “Heros” in 2009 and a pair of back-to-back appearances on “Seven Deadly Sins” last year. Look out for her appearance on “Castle” this Monday.

A word from Rachel: “When you’re an actor you get to be whatever profession you want to be in whatever role you’re playing.”
