Rachel Melvin Blogs About Days of Our Lives Departure

at . Comments

Rachel Melvin has written a lengthy new blog entry about her decision to leave Days of Our Lives.

Here's an excerpt of the post:

My leaving has nothing to do with being disappointed by storylines. For some reason, people think I favored the "Dansea" storyline, and have pinpointed that my decision to leave, was primarily based on the writers' decision to abandon that storyline. First of all, I would never quit a job based on such an immature and unprofessional reason as 'not getting my way'.

Days of Her Lives

The problem with the internet and blogging is that especially when people don't know you personally, it's hard to decipher one's demeanor, sense of humor, or implications. So allow me to clarify: When I write or blog my opinions regarding my characters' storyline, I voice my opinion as an actor- the way I see my character reacting or thinking based on their psychology or influence of circumstance.

It is voiced purely artistically without personal emotions altering any aspect of it. To imply I would do anything but, is really offensive to my professionalism and my personal character.
