Days of Our Lives Star Arianne Zucker Looks Back on Her Time in Salem, Crushing on Jensen Ackles, and More

Arianne: I was just so nervous because I wasn’t ready yet. For the callback, which was like four months later, I went back in to read for casting director Fran Bascom, who sent me to producers. Then I met Jensen [Ackles].
Glamour: Did you do a screen test with Jensen Ackles?
Arianne: Yeah, and they sent me eight pages of dialogue the night before to see if I could memorize all the dialogue. I was the last [screen test] that day, and I remember seeing all the other girls [there to screen test]. They all kissed Jensen in the scene and were like, “He’s such a great kisser!” I was like, “That’s where you failed ladies! That’s where you failed!” You get so caught up in kissing a cute boy, you forget you’re auditioning for a show. But, yeah, I got it!
Glamour: Was Jensen your first scene partner?
Arianne: Yeah, first scene of the day.
Glamour: So, what was your first impression of him?
Arianne: He was so sweet and so helpful. I was nervous. I remember, my first day we were out in Salem Place, when we used to have the outside set, and it’s winter. At that time, we shot episodes only two to four weeks ahead instead of six months. Anyway, they want us in the winter coats, and I’m in khakis, a long-sleeve shirt, and an apron. We do all our scenes, and then I hear, “Arianne, don’t leave the set. We need to do your scenes all over again.” Like, announcing it, and I thought, “Ugh, that’s embarrassing. I was that bad.” But instead, they just changed my wardrobe and put me in a miniskirt, tied my little shirt, and took the apron off. I was like, “Oh, I get it. I see where we’re going with this.” That’s kind of how Nicole got that little reputation.
Glamour: Did you ever have a crush on Jensen?
Arianne: Yes, of course I did. [Laughs]
Glamour: Did you guys ever date?
Arianne: No, no. We’d go out as a group and have a great time at dinners, Halloween parties, that sort of thing. It was a lot of fun.
Glamour:  So why didn’t you date?
Arianne: Well, I had a boyfriend at the time. So, we didn’t date, and then he ended up leaving the show and getting, Supernatural. He’s been on there ever since.
Glamour: When was the last time you talked to him?
Arianne: I don’t know, probably 10 years? Maybe on the phone? Yeah, it’s been a long time.

Sweet Forgiveness

Mike’s blue eyes, which normally shone with humor and affection and mischief, right at this moment gazed back at Harvey, cloudy with confusion and slowly dawning betrayal.

“I don’t … Harvey, what are you saying?”

“I’m saying – "  God, he didn’t want to do this.  He owed Mike honesty, however, so he forced the words out between lips that had grown numb.  "I’m saying, I spent the night with Scottie, in her hotel room."  In case that hadn’t been clear enough, he added into the heavy silence, "We slept together.  I cheated on you with Scottie.”

Mike’s complexion turned chalky, and his breathing hitched, noisy and erratic, in the air between them.  “After the things you said to me on Christmas?  I mean, shit, no one forced those declarations out of you."  He dragged a hand through his hair, sending it into disarray.  "I never – not once – objected to our long term fuck buddy status.  I never asked for an upgrade.  That was all you.”

Harvey’s chest felt tight and sore, as if a Corsican-esque connection had formed between his, and Mike’s newly bruised and aching heart.  He began shaking his head back and forth, slow and even as a metronome, and couldn’t seem to stop.  “It was a mistake.”

He meant that sleeping with Scottie was the mistake, but of course Mike took it the wrong way.  He stood abruptly, blue eyes gleaming with unshed tears, and Harvey regretted not waiting to tell him until after they had left the office.  Mike held up his hands to ward Harvey off – even though he hadn’t made a move toward him – opened his mouth, closed it, and then whirled and headed for the door.

“Wait.  Mike … "  But it was too late.  Mike was gone. 

Harvey couldn’t blame him.  He’d fucked up.  Scottie had been his awful drug of choice for too long.  He’d thought it was in the past, but he’d relapsed.  All the times it had happened before, he’d brushed it off, sent her packing, if she didn’t send him packing first, and they moved on.  Now, however, Mike had been hurt because of Harvey’s weakness, and he didn’t know how to fix it.  In that moment, he believed he’d ruined things between them forever.

You’re just like your mother after all.

The voice in his head could have been his father’s, or Donna’s, or Mike’s, or his own.  Perhaps it was all of them, blended together into a cacophonous chorus of disappointment.  He massaged his forehead in a useless attempt to silence the echoing condemnation.  He reached for the decanter of scotch on his credenza, poured a glass, and then another, and another.

Hy anon, 
That is an fantastic idea! 

Welcome to the club of the #BabyListers of the week. Stay tuned, next week the baby mama Elizibathon has to choose between the handsome faux ex-husband with an Identity crisis or the brooding, distinguished equally handsome master criminal.

Fans will be shocked! “Oh Dios Mios :O NO NO NO, Not Mr.Reddiengthon or Not-Thomasson!!” 

A DNA test or time does not exist in “The Days Of Their lives” So we wil have to wait and see, will the baby girl or boy be born with a Fedora? or a wifebeater?

You don’t want to miss One episode of “The Days Of Their lives” A show that always makes sense and does nothing for the sake of drama. A puzzle within a maze, within a blackhole, in a universe that has not been discovered yet.

You don’t want to miss this episode!

We will NOT tease you endlessly, but will NOT give you any concrete answers either. But of course, we will drop hints and retract them the next week or a few seasons later.
