There isn’t much for Day of our Lives’ Nicole to celebrate these days in Salem. She’s missing her husband Eric something awful — and in her sadness, she got drunk and managed to sleep with Xander of all people! But her portrayer, Arianne Zucker, has plenty of reasons to be happy and a great reason to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Arianne Zucker

She studied acting at the Howard Fine Studio and in 1998 and 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.

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.
