Wednesday marked longtime Days of our Lives star, Arianne Zucker’s (Nicole) final tape day on the set of the NBC soap opera.  Zucker had previously announced she decided to step away from DAYS after 18 years with the series.

Due to DAYS taping schedule being six months ahead, viewers can anticipate more Nicole drama all the way through the fall.

For her farewell, Zucker posted a photo via social media featuring some Hawaiian leis around her neck and those of her co-stars Alison Sweeney (Sami), Chandler Massey (Will) and Galen Gering (Rafe), expressing, “Aloha! Last day at work! Making it colorful!”

Just how the series will write-out the character of Nicole to facilitate Arianne’s exit is still unknown, although long time fans of the character and the actress hope her exit brings with it emotional story.

So, sad to know Arianne has finished her time at DAYS?  How do you think she will exit the canvas? Comment below.

Soooo sad to see you go Arianne/Nicole.
I hope there’s no recast….wouldn’t be the same. Awwwww!!

Nicole, being so heartbroken over losing the baby, needs some alone-time away from Salem, saying “au revoir” and not good bye; leaving the door open.
As an alternative, (this is far-reaching), maybe, Khloe will give Nicole “custody” of Holly, with the condition that Khloe will be part of their lives. So, all three leave together?

Chloe has never wanted Nicole to have Daniel’s baby from the beginning. That is why she will never custody to Nicole.

No matter how they write Nicole’s exit, it’s still going to be tough to see her gone. We watched this lady be everything a character on daytime could hope to be. We saw her be bitchy, sneaky, conniving, and vengeful. We also got to see a caring, loving, and giving lady. We hated her and we loved her. She made us yell at our TV screens but she also had us praying to God that she would get out of any danger she was in. I am glad i took this journey with Nicole. I will be one who is going to miss her terribly.

I, too, will miss the actress; she gave real depth to the character of Nicole in the last few years–and she came across as a believable character. Kudos–and aloha!

So so sad It is like losing a member of your family. I wish her all the happiness in the world even though there is a hole in my heart. Thank you for being such a great actress Arianne and giving us a character that we got to be angry with ,cried with ,laugh with ,and grew with. It was a blessing to all of us who watched days faithfully. We can watch movies any time but soaps is so much more. It is part of our lives every day. Movies come and go and other sitcoms but soaps are part of us. Could live with out them. So again thank you from the bottom of my heart to you “Nicole” and you and dr Dan enjoy your lives and please come back to Days of our lives if you can. You are always welcomed in my home. Xoxoxo

I really want Nicole to have a happy ending raising baby Holly. It is well past time for her to get happiness.

To put it simply…DAYS blew it! The character of Nicole should have been the leading lady of the show! Her range as an actress is amazing and she could really make you feel! She had off the charts chemistry with several of her leading men…yet they kept saddling her with older men with whom there was no chemistry (Daniel, Deimos) and the storylines were really bad! In my mind…Mizz Nicole is sipping on a martini somewhere, happy and in love with a man who APPRECIATES her…and loves her for her!

I agree. I think Arianne is a great actress who is able to express a great range of emotions. Unfortunately, we were subjected to Alison Sweeney being the leading lady for many years, and in my opinion, she lacked the charisma and range. I haven’t watched the show in months, since the teen scene exploded. I will only tune-in again when Eileen Davidson returns for her upcoming arc.

Good to see Chandler and Ali back!

I guess this means poor Brady is going to lose another love— I know stable relationships don’t work on soaps, but this guy cannot catch a break– I like the character of Nicole, but I like the bad girl version of her rather than St. Nic version we have been getting since her days with Daniel. I am so grateful Days has never tampered with Kate– she is one bad girl who embraces her dark side so well.

Celia
Celia

Yes, Mary. I looove Kate, even with all her flaws and “dastardly” deeds. I love her style and couture. Everything she foes is executed with panache and gusto….good or bad. She’s the purrfect feline.
And, she’s a hoot, to boot. Ha!

Celia

Does, not foes. Oops.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

While Freddie and Chandler do not in any way reveal what happens in the final six episodes they taped, or what was contained in the scripts, Chandler expressed  that it wasn’t until they received the six and final script of their promised six episodes, when the show resumed production after its long hiatus, that they realized what was happening.

It’s a Wrap For DAYS Galen Gering As He Shares Special Message To Fans: “I Hope You Know How Thankful I Am To Have Had You At My Side”

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
