Viewing Single Post From: SOW: A Closer Look: Melanie

Molly Burnett was fairly good in the beginning back when we thought she was Nick's new love interest. I never thought in a million years her story would revolve around guys in their thirties like Philip and EJ and that she'd playing her own rules. It's not fair to the actress either who is too inexperienced for such a storyline and we wind up unjustly disliking her character more for it.

Melanie as a young but "bad" girl who was used by her father was a decent storyline. But Molly Burnett is absolutely miscast now Melanie is apparently a spitfire heartbreaker who has business sense that apparently equals or surpasses men from both the Kiriakis and Dimera empire.
IA with everything you've posted except I don't think Molly has been miscast. I think the problem is that the character is supposed to be 18 and that makes the character misplaced in the EJ/Phillip scenes. I suspect that the story is too flawed for any actress to overcome.

Because of this ridiculous fuel story she's going to seem too old to be in scenes with Will and Mia now so all of the other characters will be too old or too young for her to interact with. They could bring in actors in her age group but I find that prospect annoying because they got rid of Blake Berris.
