I enjoy these three and In really don't see the big deal concerning Melanie's age. For me, she acts older then she is and this show has done this before. Remember Sami and Austin? He was much older then her yet they played a triangle with them and Carrie. What about Bo and Hope? Bo looked much older then Hope and was written as older. It happens.
The thing I like is how slowly they've built it up. They aren't forcing it on people and I like how who the characters are is playing a role in the story. Philip's conflict over being like his father or being his own man, Stephanie's struggle with whether or not she can love Philip for who he, and Melanie's struggling to make something of herself. I think the show is doing a fine job so far. I just wish they would focus on it a bit more now because all the focus has been on Philip and the Dimera/Kiriakis stuff, which I think will be used to help further the triangle. Now that the feud is established, they can go back to the triangle a little bit. I feel like they wanted to focus a great deal on Philip and his inner conflict because I think part of the reason Jay nearly quit was because of the writing for his character. I think what we've been seeing was a response to some of the concerns he may have had.
Fun interview. Love all three and look forward to what they will bring in the future.

||i agree with those who are in the Philip/Melanie camp. And I also agree with the majority who say JKJ and SH have zero sexual chemistry, while JKJ and MB have loads of chemistry! :hail:|

||I am completely in the Philip/Stephanie Camp :cheer: I see zero chemistry between Philip and Melanie and tons between Philip and Stephanie. If the show wanted Mel to be a viable match for Philip she should have been made older and a whole lot more mature. JMO|

And I found Sami being in a triangle with Austin and Carrie unconvincing then too. I no more saw why Austin would have any interest in Sami than I see why Philip has any interest in Melanie.
And as for Melanie acting older than her age of 18 (which the show has clearly established) . . . haven't you been one of the ones claiming recently that the show WASN'T trying to play her off as mature, lol? I thought you were praising the fact that she got outplayed by Tony and EJ and that she realized she was just a kid trying to play a grownup's game, and that the show wasn't trying to pretend she was some sexy adult vixen type who all the men melt over. If that wasn't you, then I apologize.
Regardless of an actual age difference though, I still don't see why Philip Kiriakis, who is loaded and hot and has way more life experience, would waste his time with Melanie. If he wants a beautiful younger woman, Stephanie fits the bill a lot better than Melanie. But I guess if he wants an obnoxious teenager who thinks she's smarter than she is and isn't particularly pretty, then it explains the Melanie attraction.
