HomeTagsComings & GoingsMolly Burnett DEPARTS Days Of Our Lives! Jillian Bowe May 29, 2012 28 Comments Soap Opera Digest is reporting Daytime Emmy nominee Molly Burnett is leaving Days Of Our Lives. Burnett revealed to the magazine: Going in, I knew it was a four-year contract and look, it's been the most amazing experience. Everyone is so loving and so wonderful and so supportive. It's going to be so hard…. I mean, this is my family. I came out here and I knew nothing, I knew no one and DAYS just kind of opened its arms and took me in. I look at it as four years of the best training any actor could have ever been given. Look for the actress to vacate her role by the end of June. 28 Responses RealityCheck 33 May 29, 2012 She’s smart to move on at her age. DOOL won’t be around five years from now, so she’ll take her talent elsewhere and do just fine. Log in to Reply Nk3play2 May 29, 2012 Can’t say I’m not disappointed about her leaving; love Melanie and Chad…. however, I understand her decision to leave considering the current state of all the soaps; she was getting plenty of work before Days, and I’m sure she’ll be getting plenty after. Log in to Reply marknsprmo May 29, 2012 I feel bad for Molly losing her job but I just hate her character. I wish her the best but I couldn’t be happier that they are moving on from this rediculously patchwork character. Log in to Reply appleridge May 29, 2012 She last airs in June or tapes in june? Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon May 29, 2012 Good luck to her! Log in to Reply Miry May 29, 2012 There you are, Twin!! Been wondering where you’ve been! And once again, ITA w/ ya! Log in to Reply rozzberry May 29, 2012 It’s a good decision. They are writing less & less for her & Melanie’s become quite dull since being paired with Chad. Plus she’s so young looking that she could probably book on any primetime show or movie geared around teens. Log in to Reply Parrothead May 29, 2012 i’m glad she’s getting out & can move on to better things. i like her on DOOL but lately most of the stories are boring & predictable & i hope to see her in primetime or movies.

I guess i’m like what B&B’s Stephanie once said about Brooke Logan when it comes to Days. “The bed ain’t even cold yet…” Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 29, 2012 She’s one of the best actresses under 30 on soaps. At first, that Joker-like smile kinda annoyed me, but she won me over. Sadly, with actresses of her caliber leaving, I am gonna be stuck with boring/overrated actresses like Kristen Alderson and Christel Khalil. Log in to Reply DonnyA2001 May 29, 2012 I really like Melanie, she’s cute and Molly does really great things with her, but she hasn’t done much in about a year or so. And with this cast as bloated as it is, I understand why she is leaving. Will Gabi PLEASE follow her? I hope they do something else with Abby and put her and Chad back together and give them a good story. No need to bring on anymore teenagers…use what they have. Log in to Reply Yoryla May 29, 2012 I really thinks Molly Burnett is a good actress. She has fortunately been given very good storylines too, until recently. Loved it when Carly, Daniel and her were a family. However, at this stage I am not sad to see Melanie go. She isn’t used very much and since the Abby/Chad/Melanie triangle it hasn’t been very interesting. The one person that really SHOULD be leaving is Gabi. Ugh… Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 May 29, 2012 Gabi is super hot. Keep her around and stick her with Chad. Don’t need a Chad/Abby redux anyway. I am 4 months behind so I haven’t gotten to see the villianous side of Gabi yet. Looking forward to it. No more Goofy Melanie scenes at least. Cya! Log in to Reply Miry May 29, 2012 Oh Y2Jinn: you will be SORELY disappointed!! LoL, her “villainy” is laughable. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman May 29, 2012 Loved her work, but hated the character of Melanie being so needy. I wish her all the best! I would like to see her in a CSI/Crime type drama. Now if only Daniel would leave with Melanie and Nick… Log in to Reply Kendall Troy May 29, 2012 Yay! I’m sorry but this character has been annoying since Day 1! So long! Log in to Reply Dyllan May 29, 2012 Hell ya! I HATED her character. So annoying. Log in to Reply The_Moustache May 30, 2012 I guess i feel relieved about this??? i mean not to bash the actress, but the character just NEVER caught on, no matter how much they ret-conned her history and made her a part of Maggie’s family. Log in to Reply TicToc238 May 30, 2012 Molly has grown as an actress, and I will miss her. Best of luck to her…. But they do not need her on the show. The only time I want to see Melanie on Days is when Nick,Chelsea, Max and Stepanie are all on screen. Log in to Reply shirls429 May 30, 2012 I really have grown to love Molly on Days and will really miss her and hope she changes her mind and decides to stay. The writers should give her a great storyline then maybe she would stay.

You can sure bet we will have to deal with the Alderon’s and Khalil’s of the world till the very end. You can fill in the blank as to who that Y&R actress was… Log in to Reply gato1 May 30, 2012 Needs more training Log in to Reply Jon May 30, 2012 [quote=david46208]@alstonboy4315: Given on Y&R it took a certain actress 30 years of “mini mouse acting” before she actually gave anything worthy of being called an actress.

Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 30, 2012 David46208- Don’t let Smitty hear you talking like that……..lol. Log in to Reply CtFireWitch May 30, 2012 I remember when she first started on DOOL and boy oh boy was she HATED!!! So I’m a bit surprised that some are going to miss her. I’d love to see Shawn and Belle return, since they’ve been bringing back everyone else it seems, why not them? Log in to Reply Yoryla May 30, 2012 I don’t quite understand how bringing back Shawn & Belle would help. It’s this syndrome that when someone or a couple have been good at ONE point, it’s gonna be like that forever. But imagine if they were to come back now? How would they even fit into the landscape anymore. I mean sure there are they’re parents, but who are they gonna interact with? Will and Abigail? Sami? Seems pretty weird to me. It’s been ten years since the Last Blast and I don’t see how it could be gotten back. Log in to Reply medavinci June 1, 2012 I don’t like her character at all. She “overacts” and seems very insincere as an actress. She’s not leaving according to the article. She had a 4 yr contract and they didn’t renew it. She annoys me to pieces. She would be good on broadway where y ou need that big insincere over the top drama. She looks a lot like Christa B Allen that plays Charlotte on Revenge. There are so many actors they can purge like Gabi and what’s the point of Abby being there without her parents? Jack and Jen were staples and I think they should have stayed. Get rid of Kayla and Justin and where the heck has Sony been? I don’t care for Chad either for that matter. They got rid of Nathan for no reason – but Melanie has slept with nearly all the men in Salem. Log in to Reply js3557 June 1, 2012 Although she has improved since she started, I still don’t think her acting is good. She often makes me cringe with her over acting and her facial expressions/contortions. I won’t miss her. I wish her well, though.
