Say it isn’t so! I read online today that Ari Zucker (Nicole) is leaving Days Of our Lives???? True or false?
Worst. News. Ever.
And unfortunately true. Now confirmed on Fairman and DC.
She has become one of my very favorite actresses in daytime. Certainly the best aspect of Days, for me, is Nicole. Very disappointing indeed.
But I wish her well and give her mega-credit for delivering authentic performances through all the ups and downs of the last few years.
She has been so wonderful in this role. I hope Nicole gets to be happy with Holly. I wonder what will be next for Ari???
Yeah, this is such unfortunate news, especially stinging on the heels of another stellar performance on yesterday’s episode. Nicole isn’t always my favorite character, but Arianne Zucker always does a great job putting her on screen. I wouldn’t imagine the show is thinking to recast, but does anyone know for sure? Alternatively, I’ve already seen it suggested on Twitter that DAYS strongly consider using Christie Clark’s Carrie and Martha Madison’s Belle to fill the leading lady void this will create for the show. Christie at least is all for the idea, as am I.
As for Zucker, I will miss her very much, but wish her all the best. Hopefully she turns up in some exciting projects!
