As much as I want her to be a mother, I would actually question the plausibility of this story.

Still not down with the "love" between Brady and Kristen. While I agree that ED may be the only pairing that has worked for EM, I want Kristen to go full steam ahead with her revenge. So far, she still is. And that's a good thing. I may end up being surprised.

Nicole, while I want my martini swilling bitch queen back.... I don't think anyone has to worry because AZ can sell anything given to her and she really actually pays attention to her character and adds proper subtext when needed. I think no matter what TIIC give to her, she's up to it. Much more so than AS ever has been or ever will be. AZ was horrible when she first started but she really took time to develop her acting. AS is still the same pig-snouted stompy whiney pain in the ass she has always been.

Just because she's reforming slightly doesn't mean she has to be a heroine, or at least a traditional one. To me, it's a natural evolution because AZ has always done a good job of making it clear that all the bad things that Nicole is doing come from a vulnerable/hurting place, not from evil motives. As she herself said, we now have Nicole trying to do the right thing but not necessary making the right choices as to how to do that. I think that sounds just about perfect.
So right on. I don't really view anyone as a hero/heroine anymore. I think the characters all have flaws, some just more than others.

My only problem with her being. Heroine is that the writers don't seem to be able to write heroines particularly well. I don't doubt that she would be able to sell it but I don't want her to be sidelined because of it or become all Jen like.

I have a hard time picturing AZ playing Nicole, even heroine Nicole, all Jen-like. AZ knows how to put nuances in her acting. I mean, who would have suspected people would have been sympathetic to a baby snatcher? She came across very well during that whole Sydney storyline. The actor makes a big difference.

I don't understand why continue with the Sydole scenes unless it's for a purpose. Nicole showing up Sami as being a good mother is alright in my book but if they won't make Nicole Sydney's mother then they need to stop teasing us fans who have wanted Nicole to have a child of her own for years now.
I think you actually answered your own question. Even if they aren't going to do a Sydole story, they put in the scenes to tease the fans that want it. That way they get them to keep watching. Soaps are basically 90% torture and 10% payoff. At least if they're well written, they are.

Uh, NO to Nicole becoming Jennifer-lite. I like the writing for her currently. I definitely don't want to see her becoming self-righteous, pious, charisma-free, and sex-less.

She can still be a sympathetic character...much more than Sami is....and be a good person. But not enter Jennifer territory in terms of being saccharine.

From this interview, it seems that the stakes have been raised in the ericole and bristen stories. What I appreciate about both is that there is so much internal conflict involved. AZ/EM seem focused on the emotional beats of the story while maintaining the integrity of their characters. I am loving how they are writing Nicole but I`m sure that its due to AZ putting her natural spin. And EM has always been a fave of mine, and I`m interested in his take when he discovers kristen`s deceptions. Both of these stories are so win-win, and I plan to be there for every beat as they play out.

Thanks for the interview! Really good stuff here. Love AZ and EM and love the Ericole and Bristen stories right now (even though Brady's willful blindness is utterly exasperating at times). Loved that new Sydney's first scene (I think?) was with Nicole. I am a happy camper.

:P If they are well written...ahem. While at this point the dialogue is better, the storylines not so much. Also, though, why cast a little girl who looks so much like AZ?

The stories are lackluster at best. I don't have a favorite story running at the moment but the performances have held my interest to some degree.

I think they probably tried to cast a child who could act and felt comfortable in front of the camera.....looks were probably secondary.

In all honesty, I don't see any particular resemblance in the new Sydney to either Ari, James, or Ali.

Because she can act?

I don't think she looks like Sami or Nicole, but she is hella lot cuter than the last Sydney who may have been the most expressionless child ever born.

I dont want nicole to be totally good i love that shes a grey character that wants or thinks shes doing the right thing but it doesnt always turn out that way. Ari is a great actress though so i feel like shes going to sell whatever shes given. So far im really enjoying ericole so i cant wait to see more of them
