Michael in 2007
|Portrayed by|| Thomas Kasp (2002) |
Jordan Potter (2007)
Michael Ellis was a schoolmate and acquaintance of murder victim Madison Reed. But their relationship began to change into something more. He stared to feel responsible for her and his feelings of friendship towards her transformed into feelings of love/protectiveness. That came to be because Madison's life began to fall apart: her father abandoned his family: Madison and her mother/his former wife Shirley Reed. Another blow to the Reed Family was Shirley, so distraught over her husband leaving began to use drugs to cope. She was also very overwhelmed with her newfound responsibilities: raising her child (daughter) by herself; a single mother and taking care of the house's needs; utilities.
