Nadia Bjorlin Jokes Re: Soap Absence and Return: “Without Chloe, You Could Have Put De Niro on DAYS and Nothing Would Happen!”





Nadia Bjorlin fans, rejoice! TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan is reporting the raven-haired vixen is bringing songbird Chloe Lane  home to Salem!

TV Guide Magazine: What happens when Chloe returns?

Bjorlin: I have heard she's going to come back as her old self again, the Chloe with good self-esteem, a stronger and more confident Chloe who can really stand up for herself and not be bullied. Toward the end there, she was being bullied by everyone in Salem! No more. She's coming back a lot more mature and who knows? [Laughs] Maybe she'll get some revenge! There are so many possibilities for the character and they've only told me a little bit right now because they don't trust me with the information. It's been very hush-hush. [A Days rep adds that Chloe's return will be heavily centered around her son, Parker.]

 

Chloe with a backbone? I'm digging that. Bjorlin also comically discussed her thoughts on being ousted from the sudser last year, in order to make room for the returns of other fan faves.

TV Guide Magazine: You, Crystal Chappell and Louise Sorel were among those sacrificed for the great Days reset that brought back Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn and the rest. Did you watch any of it? If so, how did you feel when the reset didn't do what it was supposed to do? Vindicated?

Bjorlin: I did watch a little bit, but not religiously. Hey, it's always a gamble in this business. We all want our last four soaps to remain on the air so you gotta try things. [Laughs] But, hell-ooo, they were missing Chloe so what were they expecting? Without Chloe, you could have put De Niro on Days and nothing would happen! Let's get real here!

    One good advice to the people of DAYS…

    Nadia Bjorlin returns on-screen on January 4, 2013. How about waiting a little bit with your casting news? It’s going to feel like another year has to go by until NB returns.
    She hasn’t even started shooting yet so why does there have to be a casting news about her return?

    It’s great that Chloe comes back to Salem … but it feels too early to even get a little bit excited. I’m still waiting for the return of Kristen Blake. Still another six weeks to go – and we know about that for months now.

    This is crazy. LOL

    Totally agree that Chloe hasn’t been interesting since Ghoul Girl story. There is nothing to her character. Also, I am not trying to be mean, but I don’t understand why Days continues to bring Nadia back–she is a terrible actress who speaks in a monotone and sucks the energy out of scenes. That being said, with her coming back, is there any chance that Jay Kenneth Johnson could come back as Phillip?? Love him, love the character of Phillip–Jay is great acor–good at comedy and drama–and gorgeous!! PLEASE, Days, bring Jay back!!

    @everyone: We’ll see more of her blinking her fake eye-lashes and call it acting!

    Where is Robert Kelker-Kelly when you need him to “bring up the level of acting…”

    Two characters whose returns will derail the show again:

    Chloe

    Philip

    ^These characters are DONE, and bringing them back in the same boring capacity that almost got the show canceled, is going to make the show get canceled again.

    Chloe’s mascara is like a character all its own!

    I don’t have a problem with them bring Chloe back, but they need to bring back the rest of the last blast crew Shawn-D, Belle and Phillip. I’d really like to know the reason why Days hasn’t brought back Jason Cook yet. If I were in charge I would have brought him back as soon as he left GH.

    First of all, YAWN! Chloe, really? Did we really need HER back??? TPTB, I’m sure Crystal Chappell would love to take your call if you gave her one??

    Second, Nadja Bjorlin needs to take a seat after that DeNiro comment.

    I liked Chloe the first run when she got away from that AWFUL pairing with Philip to true romance with KL’s Brady. After she came back as this weird bitch who suddenly had the hots for Philip, then Lucas, then Daniel – no dice.

    Yes she can be strong, but not this Sharon Newman -esque itch, that’s all I’m saying.

    angrierblackerman,

    I totally disagree with you about character of Phillip. He is Victor and Kate’s son, and the brother of Lucas, Austin, Billie, Bo and the late Isabella and uncle to Brady. He is a hugely important character to Days and as played by Jay Kenneth Johnson,so fantastic and gorgeous. i really want him back!!

    DAYS has got to stop releasing backstage information so early. I’m glad that Nadia is coming back, but this should’ve stayed under wraps until Thanksgiving.

    Spoken like the talking blow-up doll she’s always been………

    Never been a fan of hers, and am reminded of one of the many reasons why!
