EXCLUSIVE: Exiting DAYS Starlet Molly Burnett Talks Booking Gigs For MTV, Hallmark and Starring in Improvised Soap ‘Scandal Crest’



Take heart, soap lovers already mourning the loss of Molly Burnett from the suds. The soon-to-be exiting Days of Our Lives actress has already found a new soapy gig. She'll be co-starring in ACME Comedy's upcoming improvised, online soap opera Scandal Crest.

I caught up with Burnett to get all the deets on Scandal Crest, which will reunite her with former DAYS co-stars Freddie Smith and Eric Martsolf. I also found out what else the talented young actress has been up to since leaving DAYS, including booking a guest star spot on MTV's upcoming Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous and a new Hallmark movie!


Daytime Confidential: You're on your way to becoming for webisoaps what Jamie Lee Curtis was for horror flicks — the go-to girl! First you did Empire, then Venice, now you're doing Scandal Crest for ACME. What do you like about doing these kinds of projects?

Molly Burnett: Acting is my first love. I just like to work. I am very privileged to have been given the opportunity to participate in these great projects. There is a lot of freedom with web series, and the people that are running them, along with the casts, are such a pleasure to work with.

DC: After starring on Days of Our Lives for four seasons, you're an old pro at mastering tons of dialogue and blocking, but Scandal Crest will be an improvised soap opera. How on earth will that work, and are you nervous?

MB: Improv is such a temperamental thing. It's really easy to take something too far and lose the humor. Am I nervous? Sure, but it is reassuring knowing the talent I'll be surrounded by.
