DAYS Nadia Bjorlin Interview: Does Chloe Stand A Chance At Getting Dr. Daniel Back?

Nadia Bjorlin is back!  The beautiful and talented actress was previously ushered out of Salem, and off Days of our Lives, after Chloe had turned to life of prostitution and her once loveable and feisty character became a victim of her own bad choices.  Now Chloe has returned to Salem with a purpose; to snare Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) for herself, but more importantly to give their son, Parker, a father figure he has never had, and to right the wrongs from the whole paternity pickle, thanks in part to the meddling hands of some of Salem’s most notable past and present citizens!

On-Air On-Soaps chatted with Nadia for this “quickie” interview, so we could get her take on Chloe’s latest actions, and the obstacle that she sees in the way of her future happiness, Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Melissa Reeves)! Here’s what Nadia had to say about Chloe’s sudden return that had Daniel, shall we say, speechless!

When you came back to DAYS, did you know ahead of time that Chloe was going to be an interfering “Buttinski” in the Daniel and Jennifer romance?

NADIA: (Laughs) I like that word, “Buttinski”.  Actually, I was told none of the storyline.  I just went on blind faith.  But basically, I was really happy to come back to DAYS because previously it was just an abrupt ending for Chloe with the prostitution thing.  It was such a low point for her that I really felt like there was part of the story that was not being told, that even I wanted answered.  I was happy to come back to maybe redeem her, and to see what has been happening in her life now after her tragic past.

When you saw how the story was being set-up, Chloe is now the interloper of the relationship that had just been established between Dr. Daniel and Jennifer.  Do you still think Chloe can be a character that the audience can root for, given her recent actions?

Courtesy/NBC

NADIA:  Oh yes!  Absolutely! (Laughs) Yes, Chloe’s intentions are great. That is the sad part about any of the bad things she says or does.  It is really rooted in such a deep place, and out of love, that it really doesn’t have anything to do with Jennifer.   It is what Daniel represents to her.  I think so many bad things happened that I think she feels like, “Wow! This was meant to be! Daniel is Parker’s father and this is what we always wanted, and I always wanted.  Now, I can give my son the life I never had.   I can give him this stability and a happy childhood.”  At the end of it all, Parker is the great love of Chloe’s life.  I think that is really what she is thinking of.   She wants what’s best for him, and she may end up doing desperate and stupid things in a sense, to give him the best possible life and in a way using him.  I don’t think she even realizes she is using Parker right away.  She makes impulsive and irrational decisions, because it is not panning out the way she hoped it was going to.  I think she hoped it would be a lot easier, and that Daniel was just going to jump at the chance to be with her and Parker, after the whole paternity switch debacle, and after everything that happened.  Now everything seems so simple, when it really isn’t.

Is Chloe still in love with Dr. Daniel?

NADIA:  I think now it’s more that she wants a father for her child.  I think she thinks she is in love with Daniel, and she probably is.  I mean, she was very in love with him before.   I think now it’s more about the idea that he represents at this point.  I think she is a bit of a romantic and welcomed the idea of this fairy tale.  I think she is in love with him, but it’s more the whole picture she is in love with.

Will Kate (Lauren Koslow) continue to be Chloe’s Salem nemesis?

Courtesy/NBC

NADIA:  Yes and no. When Chloe was in Salem last, she was so weak.  Now, she has come back stronger and I like that. She has found more of her self and sense of self.  Chloe is not going to let anyone mess with her.  However, I think she may swing that pendulum a bit too far in the other direction.  She was so victimized before, that now she is not going to take crap from anyone.  And because of that, she may not necessarily listen to people who are giving her good advice.  I don’t think she is going to listen to anyone! (laughs)

I think they should just saddle Chloe with a mini-me teenage “Ghoul Girl” that she has to mentor!  So she would be the parent to Parker and “Ghoul Girl” 2.0! (Laughs)

NADIA:  That is hilarious! Totally! (Laughs)

What would you also think if Days of our Lives did a time out-of-time standalone episode featuring your singing talents and some of the others in the cast, sort of like One Life to Live did with Starr X’d Lovers: The Musical?

NADIA:  I would love that!  Didn’t they do that on Passions too?  They had a whole Bollywood episode! (Laughs)

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

So what was like when you returned to the DAYS set for the first time after being written off previously? What is like “old home” week?  Same old, same old?

NADIA:  I heard it was different before I came back, and I was like, “Oh my Gosh!” Then when I got there, it felt different for one day! (Laughs)  I got right back in the swing of it.  Everyone works so hard and there is so little room for error.  Literally, there is one take for every scene now.  There is a lot of work in a small amount of time.  I just give credit to everybody that is involved in that process.  It was interesting; because Patrika Darbo (Nancy Wesley) came back and she hadn’t been at DAYS for several years.  I did not realize how much has changed.  Patrika was like, “There is no rehearsal.”   It is different for anyone coming in.  It’s so intimidating now.   It feels like we are doing a brand new one hour play every day, because you don’t have the luxury of working things out and having rehearsal.  But on the other hand, it can be kind of fun.  I kind of enjoy some of that, because it does not allow you to sit around and think too much. You kind of go play on instincts and adrenaline, which can be fun.  It’s tough as well, don’t get me wrong!

How is working with Melissa Reeves?

Courtesy/NBC

NADIA:  Oh it’s so great, because she is so unbelievably sweet, and because I have to be so mean to her.  It’s always people I have to be horrible to on set, that are the nicest people in real life!  People don’t realize it makes it extra hard, because as an actress, you can’t draw from anything. There is no reason to be nasty to this girl.  Melissa is so nice and sweet, and so I just apologize ahead of time.  I go, “I am so sorry.” (Laughs)  That is because of some of the mean things I have to say.   Sometimes, I ask if I can change my lines.   I will say, “Oh. this is so mean. I don’t know if I can do this.”  Melissa is amazing to work with.  We volley off of each other very well.  She really cares.  Melissa cares about the story, the integrity of her own character, and the characters on DAYS, in general.  It is always nice to work with somebody who comes in prepared, and is about the work, and that is always fun.

So soapers, are you happy with seeing Nadia back on Days of our Lives?  Are you hoping that Danloe will get together again … even though this time Chloe is manipulating the situation between her, Parker and Daniel for her own gain? Do you believe Chloe’s motives are true?  Who is the man for “hottie” Dr. Daniel?  Jennifer or Chloe?  Weigh-in!

NO…. and that’s just from reading the headline…..

FAN Majority….. if it’s Sammi and EJ… SO BE IT….
FAN Majority…. Jenn and Daniel are a bust… so CHLOE MOVE ON.

it’s time for DAYS to be PRO ACTIVE…. listening to FAN’s can’t be a bad move…

Chloe should mix in with Eric, Brady, Lucas, Rafe…. that’s alot of action…. let’s see her and Nicole having FUN…

Please tell the powers that be that Shawn Christian had great chemistry with Martha Byrne on ATWT, but they never got together. There are legions of ATWT fans who would love to see them together, albeit in other roles.

Um Chloe is wasted on Daniel. He literally has like 2 expressions. He’s the most boring character on Days imo. They write him to be just dumb and easily manipulated and oh yeah just dumb.

I hate dissing my DAYS… but… the only way i can tolerate Mr. DAYS… so it seems… Daniel… is when he’s in skivvies in the hospital….

he can’t interact with all these women… including momma…

I mean c’mon…. Nicole, Jenn, Chloe…. Maggie… Mother Horton… leave him alone now. party in the manse…. party with victor…. get in to more Justin and Adrienne.

He’s totally boring!! Wish Chloe would have some scenes with Brian Dattilo who is a lot more interesting to watch and speaks up when he talks.

Dr. Dan needs an enema, me thinks he’s constipated!

Dr. Dan needs his walking papers. Same with Frumpy Jennifer. The pairing is a cure for insomnia.

please Chloe and Lucas had NO chemistry at all when they paired them : actually it was a torture to watch them together so no !
Daniel is too much propped and not really exiting as a character but he is not the worst imo.

Nancy Wesley are you their?

Take the “Bull” by the horns…. right the wrongs for Chloe…

this is another coupe that shouldn’t be wasted….. HELLO writers/days/sony… etc….

I think she will, but he will learn of her decepetion and dump her to go back to jen. Daniel needs a woman who was not his patient. Chloe and daniel go to together better than jen and daniel, jen which I love did not have not time to grieve for jack.

Chloe was also his patient lol..but doctors and patients having romance is totally soap standards so i don’t see what’s the big deal about it..

Yup. Dan’s an utter bore. So sad that DAYS ruined Jennifer for him. And Melissa Reeves cares about “the integrity of her own character”—what the what? Because she sure hasn’t been playing the Jennifer Rose Horton I have loved all these years.

She is Jen she is just not Jen with Jack (i love Jack but stop the Jen trashing because she is not with him) blame the writers for that !

A
Guest

Sure, I admit that I find Jennifer much more fun and interesting with Jack, but it’s not just that she is not with him. First, she treated him like crap when he was suffering (even though he was kidnapped and tortured and handn’t meant to leave her), and then she acted like his death was a convenience, as it gave her another chance with Dan. Sure, I blame the writers, but I wouldn’t call Jennfier’s behavior maintaining the character’s integrity. I love who Jennifer was, but this character Melissa Reeves is playing right now, she isn’t Jennifer to me.

I’m very happy that Nadia is back but I’m not sure I want her with Daniel. I really like her with Brady. I liked Daniel & Jenn the first time around but not so much this time. I feel that she doesn’t deserve him after she dumped him to go back to bumbling fool Jack, who had left her countless times [and unfortunately come back each time, even after his organs were donated]. I’d love to see Chloe get a job singing in a club again, so that we could hear her beautiful voice, like we used to hear Bill… Read more »

Jack rules. He’s not just another soap guy. There is much more to Jack than that, and I’m sorry they ever took him that direction. Funny, yes. Fool, no. Unlike “uncomplicated” Dan, Jack is complex. Anyway, Jack and Jennifer were way more entertaining. And Jack was doing his job and got kidnapped. Jennifer was a heartless jerk about it. I wouldn’t wish Dan on Chloe either, except that since she’s back short term, it would be great if he left with her. They’ve got to get Dan off of the show, rather than all of these over the top attempts… Read more »

Jack was fantastic! I agree that his second run, where they tried to make him the village idiot, was lame but even then he had his great moments, like when he promised Jen he would stand by her if she was pregnant with Colin’s baby. Compare that to Dan who dumped Chloe as soon as he found out Parker was Philip’s! I know the writers thinks Dan’s God’s gift to women but I beg to disagree. Jennifer is completely destroyed for me and Chloe should run as fast as she can in the opposite direction from the dirty doctor.

I hate Dan and Jen – they are like watching paint dry and not an ounce of chemistry. At least Dan had lots of chemistry with Chloe but he’s still icky. I still hope Jack will come back and the real Jen will fight for him.

This story with Jen, Daniel and Chloe kinda reminds me of Another Worlds popular 1970s triangle with Alice, Steve, and Rachel. Rachel(Chloe) used Jamie(Parker) to come between Alice(Jen) and Steve.(Daniel). Only in this version i feel Jen and Daniel have very little chemistry, and their story not too interesting. To me Daniel always looks confused about something like he’s wondering why hes even here, and Momma Maggie is a little too much fussing over him like he’s a child. Maggie also seems to forget she has two daughters, Melissa and Sara, which she never really metions or seems worried about… Read more »

The big difference between that story line and AW’s is the actors- on AW all three of them had mad chemistry- one day you would be rooting for Alice, another day you would be rooting for Rachel. On Days we are rooting for Daniel to fall into a manhole never to be seen again. Personally it would have made far more sense if Brady and Jennifer had bonded over their mutual grief and later on have a Chloe/Brady/Jen triangle. Daniel would have been okay in a Billie/Nicole triangle. But right now Daniel and Jen have no chemistry- Jen has lost… Read more »

You are so right. I was thinking the same about a Brady and Jen pairing. Iv noticed they have great chemistry when in scenes together. Billie and Daniel were also a better match. Would have loved seeing Billie and Chloe pull a Dynasty and have a fight over Daniel in a large pool of mud. That wouldve been hot.

I hope when Nancy comes back the writers have plans for her and not have her walk around Salem like shes in a days(daze) kinda like they did Billie. Id write something like this: Nancy tries to convince Chloe she is wrong coming between Jen and Daniel. Meanwhile Nancy becomes depressed after estranged husband Craig refuses to consider a reconciliation. Nancy sees Dr. Marlena at the hospital for her depression and passes out at the hospital. Dr Daniel runs some test and reveals Nancy has cancer. This heartbreaking news brings a concern Chloe and Nancy together, and realizing life is… Read more »

I am glad that Chloe is back in Salem, I just don’t want her to be this scheming, inept woman who has to have a man in her life because she cannot go it alone. It’s as though with all she has endured she hasn’t learned a thing. I definitely do not want her with Daniel who she did cheat on. Put her with Brady or even EJ or Rafe.

Daniel cheated on her first.He’s the one who put his ex feelings and needs above his fiance’s.Chloe was set up and drunk.What’s his excuse?Just because he didn’t physically cheat doesn’t mean he didn’t put Chloe through hell with his emotional cheating.She’s too good for him/

Its like Days is hit or miss on some sl. Peter R. Has left the show and the role of Bo. I know this is hard for some truly loyal fans to believe, but that’s the nature of the business. So they should set Hope free. Personally I think she would have mad chem with Rafe. Brady is just as dumb as his dad, but they need to bring this to an end and have him acknowledge his pain over the loss of Madison. If they write it right he could show some acting chops. But on the other hand… Read more »

Boring is precisely the reason they don’t belong together unless the writers plan to ship them off far, far away. What’s the point in watching a show where the rooting couples are boring? Jack was/is the best match for Jen and Dan’s better as a player who infuriates the audience by continually having affairs with his patients. That’s soap.

I know they are all genuine and even though you might not like them or their character on the show, I would like them off the set. I’ve been waiting so long for Daniel and Jennifer together in a real “lasting” relationship. They have so much chemistry. Yes, Daniel and Chloe did in the past, but it’s time for him to move on.

I like Jennifer, but I just think she looks a little too old for Daniel. She would match better with an older man. I don’t doubt she is a sweet person but we’re not referring to her personally but the matching up of characters on the set. I hope Nadia doesn’t leave. I would love to see her use her singing talent on the show – she has… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.
