DC Exclusive: Ex-DAYS Star Blake Berris on How His Emmy Nod Made Him Burn Breakfast



Of all the head-scratching 2009 Daytime Emmy nominations, I was glad to see the Academy got a few nods right. Two of those were former Days of Our Lives breakout stars Blake Berris (ex-Nick) and his real life pal Rachel Melvin (ex-Chelsea), who were nominated in the Best Younger Male Lead and Best Younger Female Lead categories respectively. From his very first air show, I knew the immensely-talented, theater-vetted Berris would stand out in Salem.

Melvin managed the unthinkable during her time on DAYS. She made me to finally forgive her character for mowing down the child of my favorite couple ever. Melvin infused Chelsea, a character that could have been a token, one-note, prototypical DAYS villainess, with tons of heart. I really don't even remember when it happened but before I knew it, I had stopped loathing Chelsea, and came to see her as a viable, bonafide heroine, and that is to Melvin's credit.  I caught up with Berris who shared with Daytime Confidential how he learned of his nomination from Melvin, and how it caused him to wreck a meal.

Where Would You Like Rachel Melvin To End Up?


I am going to miss Rachel Melvin on Days of Our Lives. Sure Chelsea mowed down her little brother in the street, but Melvin is a very good actress. Hopefully another soap snaps her up. Imagine her as Brook Lynn Ashton on General Hospital, Lucy Montgomery on As the World Turns, Colby Chandler on All My Children or even Colleen Carlton on The Young and the Restless. Oh the possibilities.

Hypothetically speaking, where would you like Melvin to end up?
