When Arianne Zucker (Nicole) of Days of our Lives meets people on the street and they tell her what a b---- she is, her response is "I thank you very much."
Zucker said, "You mean I'm bubbly? No, I know what they are referring to," she jokingly said. "You know...when I hear that, I feel as an actress I am doing a great job."
Zucker has been on the Days canvas playing Nicole for 14 years. A character that she plays with great depth and to which she adds great color, Nicole is the character that always adds conflict in other people's lives. One never knows to trust or not to trust her.
She personifies mystic and intrigue.
In those years she has been through much, including in real life. It was on the show she met her husband of 10 years, Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady Black; ex-Rick of B&B), and together they have a beautiful little daughter, Isabella.
Zucker admits that her favorite storyline was the baby switch, where she switched Mia's (Taylor Spreitler) baby with Sami's (Alison Sweeney). And currently playing the pregnant role without telling the father he is the daddy. In typical Nicole style, she lies again, claiming it is another man's baby. And could it be? Well...lets just say Nicole has been around. She is always on a mission to satisfy her needs.
"Now...honestly! Would you tell EJ (James Scott) he's the father? Give me a break," she laughs. "We are talking EJ. I mean, look at what he has done."
Zucker joked about her character saying that Nicole 2012 is a survivor. She acts from the heart, and does not always make the best choices. Her actions have been known to hurt people.
But that's Nicole. Zucker, on the other hand, is on a mission to help people.
Outside of Zucker's busy career, she co-founded Life Change in South Africa five years ago along with her brother. They partnered with Africa Rising and the Thirst Project to bring leadership programs to South Africa.
Zucker explained that the setting is like a boot camp. It teaches young people between the ages of 18-25 from all socio-economic backgrounds. Beside leadership skills, it teaches how to do volunteer work. It also empowers the individual to challenge themselves and offers them the opportunity to use their strength. In fact, she recently returned from there after filming a documentary.
"I felt like this is something that I wanted to do," Zucker said. "You know, I know I have a job that's very visible. I'm in the public, and I really just want to give back. I'm so proud of this venture,"
