In the new issue of Digest, on sale now, Arianne Zucker (Nicole) opens up exclusively about why she’s leaving the role she first began playing in 1998, and what she plans to do once she’s gone. “My contract is up on April 27,” she says. “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.” The actress also discusses her relationship with former co-star Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel), how she and her ex, Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady) make it work with daughter, Isabella, and the ACCESS HOLLYWOOD video that made headlines around the world last fall.
