But, we can say that about a lot of actors on Days. If you think about it, who has Melanie been surrounded by lately? Except for her scenes with Darin Brooks, she's matched up with some pretty solid guys, mainly JKJ and Blake. So many of her Max scenes were snarky and sassy, and she was at her beginning and it was, well, attractive and fresh. Now, she just seems to be too shrewish. Shriekish. I don't know the word. Maybe it's because she reminds me of Shayna Rose, and I could never take to Shayna Rose. Maybe it's her facial gestures. I dunno. Who can explain why we like who we like?
And Amello, I consider Farah Fath a pretty cute, fair comedic actress, but I will be the first to admit she doesn't do drama well. But she's got this realistic, girl next door different approachable....well, approach to her that's refreshing. And she and Jason Cook really played well against each other, probably because of their friendship. Granted, I couldn't stand her during the whole Mimi abortion storyline. She has had pretty good moments on OLTL, and some moments where I, yes, cringed. AT the very least, she can be considered inconsistent. For some reason, I'm willing to overlook the bad days to get ready to enjoy the good days. Her last scenes with the Brody character this week, for instance, were very low-keyed and touching. She played them well without her usual facial gestures.
Shelley Hennig seems to be getting a fresh start being with JKJ, too, than with Darin.
But, like I said kinda sorta, it's all a matter of taste. I liked Melanie at the beginning. Maybe, like food and wine, too much of a good thing is unhealthy. :D (As I sit here making myself sick on chocolate covered almonds and a nice glass of wine!)
