HomeTVDays of Our LivesDAYS’ Eric Martsolf on Brady’s Villainous Turn: “He Was Just Too Vanilla” Jamey Giddens November 10, 2010 2 Comments Days of Our Lives hunk Eric Martsolf seems happy his character Brady Black has taken a turn for the macabre, by locking his step-grandmonster Vivian (Louise Sorel) in his late mother’s tomb. Here’s what Martsolf told Soaps.com: "It’s the best. I mean my soap career, my nine years that I’ve had, six of them was playing Ethan Winthrop on Passions, who was Dudley Do-Right," he recounted. "The do-gooder that couldn’t do anything wrong. And now, finally, I mean, Brady was kind of going that way in the beginning too. He was just too vanilla. He was not doing anything really interesting." What would Marlena and John have to say about all of this?!

I can see him doing it for about 2 days, just to make her a little crazy & “pay” for what she did to his moms, but that’s about it. At the end of the day, I still want my “heroes” to be well, heroes. Also, what sickens me the most about all of this is the fact that he was gotten back with Nicole. 1st off: They have zero chemistry. That is most important. I could overlook a lot if they had some fire, hell, even a spark would do. 2nd: She ruined his relationship with Adrianna & framed her which sent her into gross Ej’s orbit, he should still be pissed about that.

I would rather have a basically decent guy that has a dark side than another black and white bad guy. So yes it is more interesting that Brady can put a woman in a casket but I don’t need another Victor or Ej or Stephano. But a complex individual who is basically good is great with me!
