Soap Opera Digest broke the zinger about Zucker today.
So Long, Salem
When her contract expires in April, Zucker says she will not renew, reported Soap Opera Digest (SOD).
“Two years ago, I was contemplating making the shift,” the actress said. “I know there are a thousand girls who would take my job in a second. For me, it is my time to go.”
The full story appears in SOD’s upcoming issue, on sale Friday.
Days’ Unorthodox Taping Schedule Pays Off
Of course, if Zucker tapes her last scenes in April, that means she’ll still be on the show until October, as the NBC sudser tapes episodes six months in advance of when they air.
Adieu, Arianne Zucker
Zucker has been at the center of the Days story canvas for years now, embroiled in a host of intense storylines. Some notable recent scandalous stories she’s been a part of include Daniel’s death, her relationship with Deimos (Vincent Irizarry), and Holly’s custody battle. Perhaps the fallout from her devastation at losing baby Holly will be part of her swan song storyline.
Zucker has played flawed but fabulous Salem heroine Nicole Walker for 17 years full of tears, laughter, and soap opera wackiness.
Something Important to Remember
This is daytime, folks. Nothing is impossible, as we know and love about our soaps. No matter how Nicole leaves the show, the door is always–and you know we mean always–open for her return.
