"It's been the most amazing experience," Burnett told Soap Opera Digest, expressing her gratitude to her Days "family" for opening their arms and taking her in, when she joined the show. "I look at it as four years of the best training any actor could have ever been given."
Burnett made her Days of Our Lives debut in 2008 as Max Brady's bratty "sister." However, it was later revealed that the two weren't really siblings, because Melanie had been adopted. In 2010, viewers learned that Melanie was actually the biological child of Carly Manning and Daniel Jonas.
During her four year stint on the soap, Burnett was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards (2010 and 2012) in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category.
Burnett discusses her time on Days and her hopes and dreams for the future in an upcoming issue of the magazine. You can read more, here.
