Love Out Loud for Melissa Claire Egan

Melissa Claire Egan of All My Children practically the first person to walk through the door two years ago for POZ AIDS Walk fund-raiser Love Out Loud and will be with us again this year.

At the age of 12, Melissa debuted on All My Children as an extra only to return as the very adult Annie McDermott, mother to Ryan Lavery’s daughter and romantic interest for the handsome devil. Originally from Bedford, New York, Miss Egan grew up with an extensive background in musical theatre. While still a child, she began booking national television commercials and was signed by the Ford Modeling Agency. Ford did indeed have a better idea in the University of North Carolina Dramatic Arts major. Not resting on her laurels from her experience at Chaple Hill, "Missy" studied Shakespeare at the British American Drama Academy at Oxford, England. Her television credits include One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek. She is well-loved by her cast mates. She seems to be having fun as the now whacky Annie. We’re grateful that she intends to sweeten the atmosphere at Prohibition for the fund raiser meeting and greeting the fans in attendance for a charmed third time.
