The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Sharon Case Opens Up About The Dynamic Between Sharon And Chelsea
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Sharon opened up about the very moving scenes between her character and Chelsea after her suicide attempt. She said, “It was great material to play as an actor. Sharon and Chelsea had a contentious relationship, and I thought it was beautifully written and made perfect sense that here was this broken person in front of Sharon and it was her instinct, especially as a psychologist, to help. Sharon had no problem forgetting their past in that moment in order to be the rock, along with Billy, that Chelsea needed.”
Sharon also said that she would love to see more scenes between Sharon and Chelsea Newman, too. She said, “They broke down a barrier they had not broken down before and they’re in a position to be more like friends now. I think that because of what recently happened, it kind of levels the playing field a little bit for both of them. I believe that their relationship has changed for the better and it could go anywhere from here.”

What’s more, Sharon had nothing but positive things to say about her The Young and the Restless co-star, Melissa Claire Egan. “I love working with Missy and I appreciate what an amazing job she’s doing. I remember a little while back when this storyline was just starting and we had a scene in the coffeehouse where Chelsea gets angry and kind of shoved a chair. That’s when Sharon first began wondering if something was going on with Chelsea, and this was before her breakdown. I remember telling Missy on that day, ‘You know, that was a great scene.’ She has been doing such beautiful work ever since,” she shared.
