If you have watched recent episodes of Days of our Lives, you will note that former do-gooder, Brady Black, has become darker, and we all love it.  And so does TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco, who chatted with Eric Martsolf (Brady) in this brand new tantalizing and humorous interview.  From being bad with Vivian and Nicole, to his momma, Isabella, to the romance of Broe, Martsolf shares his take on all subjects close to his alter-ego’s heart.   Here are a few excerpts!

Martsolf on Brady’s turn to the dark side:  “I’m a happy guy! I’m happy to be a wonderfully tormented abusive alcoholic right now! It’s lovely. From the start of my soap career, I have played nothing but Dudley Do-Right from day one. It’s about time that the writers explored Brady, who I’ve always thought was a complex guy. He has a little bit of DiMera DNA in him, [he’s a cocaine addict], and he’s been manipulated by Nicole countless number of times. What has been frustrating playing Brady for all this time is that I think he would’ve cracked a long time ago. Finally, enough was enough and the writers decided that this guy needed to break down. It’s been a joy. Working with Louise Sorel has been a hoot. We both come from the stage. When we saw the material we immediately said to each other, “This could be really campy in a Passions-esque way,” but we decided to play it straight. So we’re playing it realistically.”

Martsolf on Brady having angry sex with Nicole and substance abuse: “ He was a ticking time bomb, and after Nicole’s last manipulation, his cup runneth over. He went to the one thing that gives him comfort, which was his choice of poison. The beautiful thing about this is that Brady truly believes he can handle the alcohol because cocaine is his issue. It’s a common misconception that abusers have. They think, “I can’t handle this one thing, but I can handle this!” So, yes, Brady’s on his way to becoming a full-fledged alcoholic. He doesn’t care what anyone around him thinks. His personality change is very reflective of his chemical dependency. Addicts turn on a dime. When it comes to Brady’s addiction, [he’s reacting very realistically].”
