The Days Of Our
Lives Star Joining
Law & Order:
SVU In Season 24
It is definitely not uncommon for soap stars to migrate to or even guest star on a "Law & Order" series, especially "Days of Our Lives" stars. Now, another "Days of Our Lives" actor is getting ready to join the venerable crime procedural in a major role.
"Days of Our Lives" star Molly Burnett has joined "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" as the recurring character Detective Grace Muncy. Most recognized as Melanie from the aforementioned soap, Burnett has also worked on shows like "General Hospital" and "Queen of the South," and she has guest starred on crime shows like "FBI: Most Wanted," "CSI: Cyber," and "Chicago P.D."
Not too much is currently known about Burnett's character, but we do know she's an experienced detective with a background in gang activity. We also get the sense that Det. Muncy will be a sharp, skilled investigator who’s not willing to take anyone's crap.
