Actress Arianne Zuker (Nicole Walker) has stunned fans by announcing that she will exit Days of our Live. The actress confirmed that she passed on inking a new deal with the NBC soap on her official web site.
"Arianne has decided to take this opportunity to venture out and explore new projects," a DAYS spokesperson said in a statement. "The cast and crew of DAYS know that she is an extraordinary talent and although she will be dearly missed, we wish her every success! "
Zuker has expressed an interest to move on and find other acting opportunities, though the actress has not ruled out taking on another soap opera role. That has prompted some fans to toss around their own ideas about where Zuker might go next. A popular idea among fans on the soapcentral.com message boards has been Zuker joining ABC's All My Children as a recast for Greenlee Smythe-Lavery.
Zuker joined the cast of Days of our Lives in 1998. She makes her final appearance on February 10th.
According to NBC, "There are no immediate plans to recast the role of Nicole."
