You make it sound like she's running the entire show and doesn't perform as directed. Somehow, I don't see that. This is a character with written lines to perform. Actually, she was an illiterate street kid who became a ballerina. On soap operas, apparently things like this can happen. Poolboy Brad is now an arrogant corporate executive. Soap operas are about drama, and unlikely plot lines. That's what makes them fun.
