Zucker was at the 2017 Daytime Emmy Awards when according to Jason47’s Days Website, she stated in an interview that instead of leaving on April 27, she would continue taping at DAYS until June. Which is good, because it means that Nicole’s exit storyline will not be rushed.
Zucker joined DAYS in 1998 and briefly left the role in 2006, but returned in 2008 and has continued to play the popular character since then, earning two Daytime Emmy nominations in the Supporting Actress category in 2010 and 2013, and a Lead Actress nod in 2014. Outside of daytime, Zucker appeared in a Lifetime movie last year titled Killer Assistant.

Currently, Nicole and her daughter, Holly, have been kidnapped, leading fans to fear that the character will be killed off. Will Brady and Eric be able to rescue them in time, or will Nicole be joining her late fiancé, Daniel, on the other side? (Thankfully, while DAYS isn’t shy about killing off major characters, they’re just as happy to figure out a way to bring them back from the dead when the mood strikes!)
Since her introduction, Nicole has always been in search of true love and a family, and although she started out as a gold-digging schemer, over time she has grown out of those ways… to an extent! Relive some of Nicole’s most memorable moments in Salem in our special flashback gallery below!
