A casting call went out last month for the unknown Forrester family member, prompting many fans to wonder what Melissa's ties would be to Forrester clan. In a WT? On the Spot poll conducted by Soap Central, 29% of those participating in the poll stated that they had "no idea" who Melissa would turn out to be. About one-fifth felt that Melissa would be a here-to-unknown sibling to Thorne and Kristen and about the same number thought that Melissa might turn out to be Eric's sister. Few respondents felt that Melissa would turn out to be one of the Forrester men's long-lost ex-lovers. 9% felt that Melissa wasn't the real name of the character and that the show was using that name as a smokescreen to protect the character's real identity.

Apparently, Melissa was a character that B&B execs were batting and around. Melissa was never fully-developed and was merely a character outline. The show refused to rule out an eventual appearance by Melissa, however, she's not expected to be seen until well into the New Year.
