I am so impressed with how well Nicole/Ari works with a variety of actors/characters. I've liked Nicole since I first saw her during the whole Stan/Chloe with bacon strip face years, although I thought her character was maybe a little too much. I rooted for Nicole and Brady. I LOVED the Laverne and Shirley-style frenemy antics with Ari and Allison and wish they could bring that back. (One of the few things I think JER did right).|
But, this go around has shown new depth to her acting. I don't know if it was always there, if she got more training while she was away, or what. If she was of the "right family" in Salem, she'd definitely be leading lady material. As it is, she is, but heaven forbid if Nicole Walker is anything but. :huh: My word. There is SO much that can be tapped into Nicole's past that would make for awesome soap. In the hands of a good writer. What a waste.
And that is where I would root for Ari to go for a successful stint in primetime. If they can't get away from the "You have to be a Horton or Brady or Dimera to be a lead character on Days" and utilize this talent, they deserve that.
