In the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, Nadia reflects on the changes in her life since she first began playing Chloe in 1999, including the birth of her son, Torin, on May 4.
“It’s been incredibly humbling. Before becoming a mom, when people talked about the first few months being hard, I’d just brush it off and think, ‘Oh, it will be fine. As an actor we have crazy hours and sometimes we don’t sleep or we have to be up in the middle of the night.’ This isn’t like any of that. It’s just really hard…. It’s also incredible and rewarding.”

In case you have been living under a rock, Nadia has wrapped her role as ‘Chloe Lane’ on NBC’s daytime drama, Days of our Lives. She will continue to air until late September (tentatively September 28, 2011).
“It’s a bittersweet moment for me, but fortunately I have been at these crossroads before, and I’ve always rose to the challenge in everything I pursued. I will miss the cast and crew dearly, and they — including [executive producer] Ken Corday — will always be considered family to me. At the same time, I am excited for where this next chapter in my life takes me.”
Nadia told Michael Fairman,
“Days of our Lives has been such an amazing huge part of my life and I will always be so grateful to them. It would have been 12 years come this October for me on the show as that is when I started working there. I loved playing “Ghoul Girl”. And I adore Chloe and all of her faults as well. Realistically, I was not happy towards the end. OK, I was not happy at all. I felt it was really out of character for Chloe to end up this way. I tried my best to redeem her, but sometimes as an actress there is only so much you can do. But I have always adored the place and everyone who works there.
On one level it does feel like the end of an era, but it does not feel like the end for me. Never say never on Days of our Lives and off screen, all of these people will continue to be in my life. And you never know what is going to happen.”
