I actually started to like Daniel when he got with chloe and would've loved him if they hadn't written him as a hyprocritical asshole when he found out about chloe and philip.

I found this little piece in last week's SOD and, for some reason, found it interesting. There's going to be an article about SC in this weeks SOD and this quote is under "Sneak Peek". This is from SC.....
"I was initally approached wiht a one year deal. I knew the character wasn't a fan favorite to begin with. I'm not sure he is now. Daniel is very difficult to root for because of the choices he makes. But over time, the character has evolved. I think since the time I've been here we've had three or four different executive producers and head writers. Each one of them has had a different interpretation of who Danile should be, and what he has to offer. I've had great interest in each one of their ideas".
It appears to me that he's not even sure why there's such popularity with this character. You know, I really like SC as an actor, I do. I think, as he has said, there's been things written for the character that has been frustrating and just not very good. That would have to be hard on the actor. At the end of the day, if you don't have writing, you will have a failure at any show. The actors are paid to act what's on the page not write. Anyway, I just thought it was an interesting quote from the actor.
the melanie/carly/dannifer crap is what ruined the character for me.
