Now that the character of Melanie Layton (Molly Burnett) has been on our screens for awhile on Days of Our Lives, I thought it was about time to check with the fans about what you think about the character so far.
Quick recap: Melanie is Max's half sister and they share the same biological father - Trent Robbins - who is currently still married to Nicole. There were rumors flying around that Melanie would be the secret child of Trent and Nicole's, but sadly, that hasn't happened (I think it would be fun to have Nicole Jnr but that's just me). Melanie is a bit of a spoilt, self-confessed party girl, attending school in France and hitting up rich boyfriends or stealing expensive jewellery from her "friends". Upon meeting her brother Max, she had him framed for a crime he didn't commit, but when she was released on bail, left him and Stephanie behind bars, saying she couldn't do anything to help. Enter Nick Fallon, who flew over to France to help Stax out of jail but who caught Melanie's eye after pretending to be a rich hottie. After getting Stax out of jail, Nick and Melanie have been getting closer, sharing a kiss this past week.
For me, I am non-plussed. I have found the character annoying and whiny so far - not unlike Chelsea Brady when she first appeared on our screens. But maybe, like they did with Chelsea, they will use Nick to make her more likeable. If that's possible. To be honest, I kind of liked her friend Tiffany better, but that's a thought for another poll.
