While Nicole’s true fate is definitely up in the air considering we now know that Kristen is simply wearing a Nicole mask and impersonating her on Days of Our Lives, her portrayer, Arianne Zucker, certainly has something to celebrate.
That’s because the beautiful actress was born on June 3, 1974, in Northridge, California, which means she’s turning 45 years old today! Zucker was raised in Chatsworth and before becoming a successful actress, she modeled from the age of 16, traveling to places like France, Japan, and Australia before settling in New York City.
From there, she appeared in national and international commercials, for things like Mazda Miata and McDonald’s. But, for fans of soaps, it was all about the year 1998 — when Zucker landed the role of Nicole Walker on Days of Our Lives — a role she has played off and on ever since until she began playing Kristen impersonating Nicole.
In addition, she’s also guested on CSI: Miami, Life in General, and DeVanity. Zucker also appeared in the mini-series Ladies of the Lake and Ladies of the Lake: Return to Avalon, as well as TV movies like Killer Assistant, Ex-Wife Killer, Web Cam Girls, Mommy Be Mine, Babysitter’s Nightmare, His Perfect Obsession, and A Mermaid for Christmas.
On the personal side, she’s involved offscreen with Shawn Christian, who played former onscreen boyfriend Daniel, and has a daughter, Isabella, with ex-husband and current co-star Kyle Lowder (Rex; ex-Brady).
