“Days of Our Lives” viewers are trying to say goodbye to Daniel (Shawn Christian) after a horrific car accident claimed his life. However, you’ll still have plenty of chances to check out Shawn Christian in his various new projects. Christian recently wrapped filming on “Last Seen in Idaho.” He also tweeted some behind-the-scenes pics from the set of “Hidden Truth.”
It looks like Christian has a comedy in the works as well. He’s been filming “Savannah Sunrise” in Georgia. In other words, Christian is a busy guy! If you’re going to miss seeing Daniel around Salem, you’ll want to watch some of Christian’s latest flicks. It’s clear that some of these roles are a big departure from Dr. Dan. It should be fun to see Christian show off his acting chops in a new way.
DOOL fans might also be interested to know that Christian and his onscreen love interest are actually a couple in real life. Christian and Arianne Zucker, who plays Nicole, are reportedly in a long-term relationship. This isn’t the first time Zucker has found love with a “Days of Our Lives” costar. Zucker was also married to Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady) from 2002-2014. They share a daughter together named Isabella.
Christian’s departure from “Days” has caused many viewers to wonder about Zucker’s future at DOOL. The rumors hint that it was Christian’s choice to leave the NBC soap and his dwindling airtime may have had something to do with it. Now that Christian has left the show and is starring in a plethora of films, some fans are fearing that Zucker could follow his lead. Zucker’s contract is estimated to run through March 2016. That’s when a decision should be made about possibly renewing.
Nevertheless, Zucker seems excited about what lies ahead for her character. In recent interviews, she’s indicated that exciting developments are coming up. Most DOOL watchers are hoping that Zucker will sign on the dotted line once again so we can see much more of Nicole! Stick with “Days of Our Lives” to see how Nicole will handle Daniel’s death.
