This isn't the first time Zucker has decided to leave DAYS. She originally portrayed porn star-turned-model Nicole Walker from 1998 to 2006. She returned in 2008 and has been churning out drama in fictional Salem U.S.A. ever since.
News of her departure follows the upcoming exit of screen partner Vincent Irizarry, who plays Nicole's nefarious lover Deimos Kiriakis. Zucker's contract is up in April. Since the show tapes several months in advance, she will likely still be airing on DAYS into the fall.
