“For sure. I think she’s gone from making decisions on a whim to actually thinking about her future and who she is as a person,” said Zucker. She is showing more character exploration. I believe that is the writers’ goal -- giving the actors the gift of writing for the characters.”
“For myself, when you get a script and you see it is character driven – oh my goodness, there is so much you can do with that. I believe that when you love a scene or an episode the words just sort of fall out of your mouth. The audience sees that. They see that truth.
“Also, I think it’s when you write a story driven show, there’s gotta be (my own personal opinion) there has to be a beginning, a climax, an end --- a big end, and those are difficult to tell. With a cast of 33, those are a little harder to tell. With character stories, it gives the writers a chance to explore the characters they are writing for. Which a lot of the time means less actors are working – I am not saying that’s what happening now, but when you are writing for characters you are creating this beautiful story that people want to watch.”
Along with totally enjoying the current storytelling on Days of our Lives, Zucker has just completed filming a documentary in Boise, Idaho. “You never know what’s gonna happen. We scheduled a day – we hit a bump or two – but from there it was awesome. It was such a high,” she shared with Soapdom regarding the shoot.
Zucker is also partners with Jason Cook (ex Shawn, Days of our Lives, currently Matt, General Hospital) on LifeChangeTheShow.com. Their mission, simply put, to change the lives of six young adults.
“We have a search going right now,” Zucker said, “so people can upload video to the website. It tells you how. We’ll even be going to London and other places. We are doing this grass roots. We did about 20 in Boise, shot two young adults while we were there.”
Oh and that documentary we mentioned earlier? Its title is LifeChange.
Far as a shout out to her fans, Zucker exclaimed:
“Keep rooting for my girl, Nicole, to make some changes in her life. I love you guys. Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting Nicole for almost 14 years.”
