Brady Black's Dark Heart
By Robert Waldron

Eric Martsolf is having a great time playing Brady Black's darker side. He gives the DAYS OF OUR LIVES writing staff high praise for expanding the characterization and revealing new layers. "Sometimes, it is the responsibility of the actor to show some sides and depth that maybe the writers in any other way wouldn't get a chance to see and to observe," he notes. "It's a difficult [job]. I can't imagine being a writer and having to juggle that many stories with so many actors."

Fans have written Martsolf expressing an enthusiastic thumbs-up regarding Brady's dark side. "Not just fans," Martsolf adds. "[Executive producer] Ken Corday and [co-executive producer] Gary Tomlin have come up to me and said, 'We really like the changes that you've made to this character.' Brady is almost more likable as this strong, evil character than he's ever been, in the sense that it's a little more complex."

Brady is creating new enemies, including his grandfather Victor Kiriakis. "Brady has pretty much proven to his grandfather that he doesn't need to have his hand held anymore," shares Martsolf. Brady has also stood up to his rival in love, EJ DiMera. "It's a preoccupation right now," Martsolf points out. "Brady's simply following in his father, John Black's, footsteps. Contempt for the DiMeras has always been an ongoing issue for them. It just seems natural that Brady would go against EJ. They're two totally different men, although recently, there are a lot more similarities between them than ever before!"

Brady has also become less concerned with winning the approval of others. "Other people's feelings about what Brady is doing are the least of his priorities," Martsolf asserts. "Brady's doing what makes him happy."

I've definitely enjoyed Brady more with an edge...but here's hoping they'll continue to explore that and develop it in to more of a story for him. As it is now, it's pretty easy to forget that Brady is on the canvas.

Thanks for posting, Ellie. :)

Isn't it funny that Brady hates the Dimeras, but he's one of them.....you see this is the reason that I can't get over how incredible stupid making John Black a Dimera was.....FAILURE.

I don't know, RoboJohn had his moments.

I loved when he, Marlena, EJ, and Sami all lived in the mansion.

Sure, I think the story could've played out a whole lot better. First off, they should've never wrote him & Marlena off, and the way they did it was unforgivable. But I think it could've been really interesting to have John eventually get his memory back and have to deal with being Stefano Dimera's brother.

That would be the only thing that WOULD have made it worthwhile, but since it never happened and TPTB are even reluctant to even mention Brady's father on air, IMHO it was all for NOTHING. Waste of time if you ask me.

I don't think it would make a difference. He'd already gone through thinking he was Stefano's and Tony's brother. Making him a DiMera just wasn't that big if a deal, IMO. Being related/connected to the DiMeras was nothing new for the Blacks.

But honestly, what storyline under Dena's pen hasn't ended up being a big waste of time?

No jest, and if I'm not mistaken, I'm thinking the lady in your avi may have had a small bit role on the show too.

I could be wrong about that.

No because it was at Christmas when he confirmed that he wasn't his son. And Dena didn't write at Christmas....right?

Oh. I was talking about years before when he thought he was Stefano's son. Being Santo's son was during the strike so presumably it was a Higley writing with Sheffer's outline. Maybe. Or AS wrote it, lol.
