Molly Burnett stars in NBC's daytime soap opera "Days of Our Lives" as Melanie Layton, the long-lost sister that Max Brady never knew he had.

Molly Burnett was born and raised outside Denver, Colorado, where her parents and younger brother still reside. Growing up, Burnett found her second home in the Denver community theater world with roles including Dotty in "Noises Off," Hermia in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Mayzie in "Seussical" and Annie in "Annie." In high school, Burnett was in her school's elite a cappella jazz ensemble, and was selected to perform in the Colorado All State Choir, All State Jazz Choir, and the National Honor Choir in Los Angeles. She was also a proud member of her high school's speech and debate team, competing in the humorous interpretation division, eventually going on to compete and place at the national tournament. Proving that the homecoming princess can be a speech and debate nerd!

After graduating with honors from high school, she moved across the country to New York City. Burnett quickly realized that while her heart remained in the Big Apple, she needed to be in Hollywood to realize her dream of acting in television and film. She made the trek west, staying with her best friend in Orange County. Burnett wasted no time in finding an agent and manager. Appointments quickly followed for leads in television shows and films. In a short time, she found her way into the casting office of "Days of our Lives" and so began this exciting chapter of her acting career.

Burnett absolutely adores Bernadette Peters, looks up to Ellen DeGeneres, admires Matthew Perry's perfect comedic timing, and crushes on Robert Downey Jr.

Besides performing, Burnett was a leading attack on her high school's varsity lacrosse team, holds a black belt in Karate, is a scrap-booking connoisseur, and has a slight obsession with Harry Potter.

Burnett misses the great Colorado outdoors, and would love to have a home in Telluride someday, but until then, she loves living the California dream.
