It's not like they are taking Melanie and making her a lead.
But according to your argument, why would it be a problem if they did?
Because she just started. Nicole didn't. Lexie didn't. Kate didn't. I could go on but I won't. Characters who have been on for 5 years or more I think can be pushed as a lead in a story. I think after 5 years you can figure a character is ready for it and that the audience is comfortable with it.
Ok thanks - we'll have to agree to completely disagree (on both your posts, lol). I do not think having a character on x number of years makes the audience comfortable with him/her as a lead, nor do I think it makes the actor or actress ready for that role.
But, it's not like Ari/Nicole is getting a TON of negative backlash, at least on the boards. (And I know that's not a good measurement, but it's one we use). It's not like Chan, a couple that had quite a few people and columnists protesting against them. Nicole's stories and Ari's acting, in general, seem to be getting some good reviews. It doesn't seem like TPTB's are forcing her on us, despite "public" backlash.
I can't speak for the letters coming in, but frankly, it's refreshing to see someone different get the spotlight for once. And Nicole's got SO much garbage that can be fodder for a ton of terrific stories, in the right hands.
