This is the aftermath of Eric finding out. I loved those scenes because they were about two people who really love each other and have for 20 years but they realize they’re not on the same path. Were they both at fault? Yes. One wasn’t right about a decision to be gone for so long and the other to be with someone else. But they still love each other very much. Nicole had this great line that went something like 'I’m a better person when I’m with Eric and he’s a better person when he’s not with me.'
The scenes were intimate. I loved the camera shots in that episode. I felt that closeness of the shots helped bring people into the scene. I would like to give credit where credit is due and it takes a village for your work to be great. I appreciate when everyone on set is looking out for you and each other. It’s a good feeling. Whenever everyone’s rooting for you, it makes it more fun. I love when the crew claps at the end.
At the yearly Best Actress nominees lunch, Zucker enjoys relating to her fellow leading ladies. She said:
The ‘Leading Ladies Luncheon’ is always so nice. I’ve met Cynthia [Watros, Nina, General Hospital] and it’s nice to get together and reminisce and share what we’ve all been up to. Phenomenal chicks having a fun time. It’s a special time. Life has changed so much. I’ve always loved being able to get together with other people from other soaps. It’s really fun. We’re connecting again, which is cool. I really miss it. We’re a bunch of humans wanting to have a nice time together and share stories.
