When Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker) leaves Days of our Lives later this spring, she'll likely take a non-glamorous “normal” job to support her daughter.

Can you picture Days of our Lives Arianne Zucker (Nicole Walker) as a waitress? A secretary? A real estate agent? Believe it or not, one of these “normal” jobs may be in her future.

Zucker has decided to part ways with DAYS, and when her contract is up this April, she admits that she might have to take a regular job to make ends meet.

“I am being pitched as we speak with my new agency/manager. I booked a movie. I am just ready to fly. I am ready to work. It's not being a star, it's working,” she explains to Soap Opera Digest. “I'll probably get a ‘normal' job, so anyone who lives in L.A. might be like, ‘Aren't you...?' ‘Yup.' I have a kid. As parents you have to do what you have to do. There is no shame in earning money, I will tell you that.”

However, that doesn't mean she's giving up on the entertainment business. In fact, it's just the opposite.

“The first time I left [DAYS in 2006], I didn't even know if I wanted to act. So this time, I finally figured out who I am and what I am and what I want to do, and I absolutely love acting,” she says. “I thought, ‘Well, I have a great job,' but you always want to have a backup plan. I just want to go off and try new things. So I made sure I dotted all my i's and crossed my t's and had a plan to leave the show. I'm [coughs] in my 40s, but I still have dreams, so why not live them?”
