Marcy Rylan grew up in rural Pennsylvania, where she pursued her first love — dance — from an early age. "My mom put me in ballet shoes as soon as I could stand up, and I started doing commercial and print modeling when I was in junior high," she recalled to Soap Opera Weekly.
Shortly after her high school graduation, Rylan moved to New York City to pursue acting. She completed a two-year acting program at the William Esper Studio while working at GUIDING LIGHT.
Before appearing on GL, Rylan guest-starred on Nickelodeon's hit television show DRAKE & JOSH, and she also appeared in several national network commercials, including spots for Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Trojan condoms.
Rylan left GL in 2009 when the series ended. She became engaged to boyfriend Don Money in July 2009 and the two welcomed son Jackson Robert a few months later.
In early 2010, Rylan replaced Hayley Erin as Abby Carlton on YOUNG AND RESTLESS when the show decided to age the character.
