CBS’ top-rated soap The Young and the Restless snagged another favorite from All My Children, which is moving to the internet.

EW has learned exclusively that Melissa Claire Egan, who played Annie Novak McDermott Lavery Chandler on the ABC sudser for four years, will now show up in Genoa City as a mysterious woman named Chelsea who is connected to Billy’s arrest in Myanmar.
