There is a lot for Day of our Lives’ Nicole Walker to celebrate these days in Salem. She’s engaged to Rafe Hernandez, though it’s a bit awkward having ex-husband Eric Brady back in town! Her portrayer, Arianne Zucker, also has plenty of reasons to be happy and a great reason to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Arianne Zucker
That’s because she was born on June 3, 1974, in Northridge, California, which means that this talented performer is turning 48 years old today! Zucker began modeling in the early 1990s and that led to commercial assignments for corporations like Mazda and Mcdonald’s.
She studied acting at the Howard Fine Studio and in 1998 successfully auditioned for the role of Nicole Walker on Days of our Lives. She remained in the part until 2006 though she returned in 2008 and has continued, on-and-off, since then. She has received five Daytime Emmy Award nominations, including one for lead actress this year.
Her other credits include a guest appearance on CSI: Miami, as well as a plethora of TV movies including Killer Assistant, Ex-Wife Killer, Web Cam Girls, Babysitter’s Nightmare, A Mermaid for Christmas — with DAYS co-stars Kyle Lowder (ex-Rex/ex-Brady) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), and We Still Say Grace with Oscar-nominated actor Bruce Davison.
She has also appeared in the web serial DeVanity and the feature films Looking for Bobby D, The Last Resort, and The Contractor. Along with several soap pals, she co-starred in the mini-series Ladies of the Lake and Ladies of the Lake: Return to Avalon.
