Various Press – August 2002

soaptalkFrom SoapTalk – August 13, 2002 episode

Nadia Bjorlin plays Chloe on Days of our Lives. Nadia’s current storyline hits close to home. Her character was just diagnosed with Leukemia. Nadia’s father passed away from the same disease. Nadia admits that at first, her scenes were very hard to play and she was scared to do them. She had to take it as an actor’s challenge even though it was tough because she had to relive some of the experiences that she went through with her dad. Nadia has learned a lot from playing this storyline. Nadia is touched that many fans have donated money in Nadia’s father’s name to the Leukemia Society.

On a lighter note, Lisa brings up Kevin Spirtas and Patrika Darbo. As Lisa says, Kevin is a kick in the pants. Nadia thinks that they are the best people to work with. Nadia confirms that after playing a prank on Kevin, he chased her naked through the studio as Patrika howled with laughter. Nadia admits that she has a crush on both Ewan MacGregor and Jude Law. Other than the obvious, she thinks that they are both so talented — and the accents don’t hurt either!

Speaking of talented, Nadia shared hers with the SoapTalk audience and sings — in German — a stunning a capella rendition of “Ave Maria”.


From TV Guide Online

Nadia Bjorlin has been experiencing some heavy emotional moments portraying Chloe’s bout with leukemia on Days of Our Lives. Even before the story got intense, her onscreen mom, Patrika Darbo (Nancy) was feeling for the young actress. Knowing that Bjorlin’s real-life father, Ulf Bjorlin Sr., succumbed to the illness, Darbo planned to offer her TV daughter an extra dose of TLC.

“I knew this storyline was going to be a little tough for Nadia because of her dad,” she told TV Guide Online. “I always had that in the back of my mind.” Darbo’s answer was to experience any painful memories right along with Bjorlin. “There’s going to be an empathy in Patrika, knowing that what’s happening to Nadia will bring back a loss that she’s already been through,” she candidly shared. Days of Our Lives will air a fictitious “Light the Night Walk,” a fundraising effort that benefits The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, on Sept. 20. The dedicated actresses will both participate in real Light the Night Walks ( throughout California beginning Sept. 27.


From The NY Daily News

“I am the ambassador for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” says Nadia Bjorlin, who plays Chloe and whose father (conductor and composer Ulf Bjorlin) died of leukemia. “I have gotten to do some public service announcements, which has been a really good thing, since my family was so affected by this disease.”

The only problem with the episode?

“My character is not even in the ‘Light the Night’ walk!” Bjorlin says. “Chloe is stuck in North Dakota looking for her biological father with Brady, trying to find a bone marrow match. She is supposed to be back in time but she doesn’t make it.”

Chloe does, however, end up in a sleeping bag with Brady.

“Philip will always be her first love,” Bjorlin says, referring to her character’s recently booted boyfriend. “She’s very heartbroken, obviously, that she has been betrayed once again. But this has been a long time coming. Ooh, la la.”

Bjorlin knows that rabid “Days” fans – divided into two camps, PHLOE (for Philip and Chloe) and BROE (for Brady and Chloe) – will be upset.

Of course, Chloe and Brady will grow closer, culminating in a big moment at her 18th birthday party.

Getting closer with Brady won’t rock her character. “I’ve been naked in the stables with Philip, so it’s no big deal,” she says.

Nadia Bjorlin | Westlake Magazine 2015Nadia is featured on the cover and in the pages of the March/April 2015 issue of Westlake Magazine. 

We first fell in love with Nadia Bjorlin back in 2005 when she glamorized the cover of Westlake Magazine’s 13th Anniversary issue. The then 25 year old singer, model and actress had waltzed her way into Hollywood and captured our hearts as the audience favorite, Chloe Lane in Days of our Lives. Now, ten years later, we are so pleased to catch up with this natural beauty and welcome her back as the “bride to be” for this year’s wedding edition.

Born August 2, 1980 in Newport, Rhode Island to Swedish composer and conductor, Ulf Stefan Bjorlin and Fary Bjorlin, an Iranian native and interior designer, Nadia spent her childhood playing in the backyards of both Sweden and the United States. It was during her time in Palm Beach, Florida, where her father conducted the Florida Philharmonic that she fell in love with music and began singing professionally at the tender age of six.

Sharing in the love of music with her famous father, Nadia studied opera at Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, where she was honored for her excellence in theatre, voice, music and dance. Recognized for her talents, the young prodigy went on to study at the Professional Children’s School in New York City along with other famous actors and actresses such as Julia Stiles, Gaby Hoffman, and Macauley Culkin. It was after high school that Bjorlin shifted her focus to acting and within less than a year landed her breakout role as Chloe Lane.

When we last met, she had just left the daytime soap to join the cast and crew of the UPN television series, Sex, Love & Secrets. Since, she has made guest appearances on shows such as Jake In Progress, Complete Savages, NCIS and the CBS comedy, Two and a Half Men.

Tom Langan, Executive Producer of Days of our Lives once described Nadia as “a serene, fascinating beauty who floats through a room”. That’s exactly the vibe I got when we finally caught up with the bride-to-be at a private estate in Hidden Hills. There she opened up about turning 35, her fiancé, wedding details, and new projects in the works.

Interview with Nadia about Venice on


Right off the bat what is interesting is that when you do meet Lara, it looks like she has it all together. This person is too good to be true. Usually the saying is, if something is too good to be true, it is.  I guess it’s because I empathize with that character in the sense of her needing to feel like she has to have this image of perfection. She was raised in this family where a certain standard was expected of her, so I think she expects that of herself. She expects to not fail, and she expects to be perfect and be a literary genius, and have it all figured out.  And still look good and dress well and be able to impress her girlfriend.

Insight into Chloe Lane by Nadia

Days of our Lives - Season 47From TV Buzz, MSN TV Blog

No one gives poor Chloe a break. She’s probably one of the only characters – the only female, at least! – who hasn’t tried to murder anybody, poison anybody or any of that. Chloe does everything out of love and people give her so much crap.


From Michael Fairman, On Air, On Soaps

When Chloe was in Salem last, she was so weak.  Now, she has come back stronger and I like that. She has found more of her self and sense of self.  Chloe is not going to let anyone mess with her.


From TV Source Magazine

I like the fact that Patrika [Darbo] is coming back. There were so many unanswered questions as to why Chloe’s family wasn’t really around during her lowest point in her life. And now it kind of helps explains it a little bit. She’s coming back to be supportive of her daughter and help with Parker. It kind of explains a little bit more as to why her parents weren’t around.



They’re (the fans) rooting for Daniel and Chloe to be together, no matter what kind of crazy things Chloe is doing right now. There are people who are not giving up hope, and Chloe is not either. I mean, Daniel’s her baby daddy.



I think Chloe is not a malicious person. She has a lot of love to give and share, but she sometimes makes really quick, irrational decisions to support her


From Daytime Royalty

  Chloe’s so well-intentioned, but she does keep digging herself deeper and deeper.  She has the best intentions, of course.  I think she makes really impulsive decisions, obviously out of love.  I think she’s starting to kind of lose sight of what’s really important because she just has her eye on the prize, and the it’s so important to her because she really wants to give her son the life she never had growing up.


From Diva of Days of our Lives

It’s a lot more fun being the schemer…

Summer 2010 Issue

Nadia Bjorlin in Runway MagazineThis striking beauty is probably best know for her role as Chloe Lane on the daytime drama, Days of our Lives; however, what fans may not know is that Nadia Bjorlin has worked in both music and film.  Nadia began her music career at the age of 6 performing with two of her brother in the Bjorlin Trio, according to After high school, she joined the cast of Days of our Lives.  In 2007, she starred in the independent film, If I Had Known I Was A Genius, which featured Whoopi Goldberg, Sharon Stone and Tara Reid.  In addition, she also starred in the film, Redline, with a cast that included Eddie Griffin and Nathan Phillips.

With several upcoming projects ranging from acting to writing to producing, it’s a wonder how Nadia even has time to keep up with the current fashion trends.  But, it seems she has come up with her own method of developing her fashion sense over the years, whether it is through her characters keeping up with the times on-screen, or by favoring designers whose fashion works for her body and personality.

Runway Magazine: What fashion trends have you seen evolve on Days of our Lives since you filmed your first episode in November 1999?

Nadia Bjorlin: When I first started, it was cool to wear baby t-shirts, plaid miniskirts, bedazzled accessories, lots of hair ornaments, glitter lip gloss and knee length cardigans!  Fashion has evolved on the show as it has in real life.  I definitely think fashion is back to feminine, classic and timeless, and what we wear on the show reflects that now.

RM: Has working on Days of our Lives influenced your personal fashion choices?

NB: Absolutely.  I’ve realized what works on my body type, which is THE single most important rule to follow in fashion.  I don’t believe in wearing current trends if they don’t flatter your body or sensibility.  Also, I’ve realized the importance of tailoring your clothes.  You can buy an inexpensive dress, have it altered perfectly to your body and make it look like a million bucks.

Days of Her Life

By Adam Albright-Hanna
October 2009 Issue

Beverly Hills 213
Fans of the iconic daytime program Days of Our Lives know the character Chloe Lane as the opera-singing beauty who  disappeared in 2003, only to return in November of 2007. While Chloe can be mysterious, the person behind the role is  the open and honest actress Nadia Bjorlin, whose amazing talents are keeping her extremely busy.

“Growing up I started with music, which then segued into musical theater and eventually television and film, right out  of high school,” Nadia says, in regards to how she broke into television from music. “I don’t think I ever really had to  transition from one to the other because I’ve been pretty fortunate so far in my career in that I’ve been able to have  the best of both worlds. My singing has often been incorporated into a lot of projects I’ve worked on. For example, my  character, Chloe Lane, on Days of our Lives is an opera singer. It was a prerequisite for the role to be able to sing.  So I’ve been lucky enough to get to sing while I act!”

While Days was Nadia’s big break, she had actually never seen the show before getting the gig.  “I was definitely  missing out!” she says.  After landing the role, she’s appeared on the show on and off for the past ten years. What does  the experience mean to her?  “It will always be a huge part of who I am because I practically grew up on the show,” she  explains. “I’ve spent almost half my life there! The cast and crew of that show are like family to me now.”

Besides Days, Nadia is currently working on an album with two of her brothers, Ulf and Jean-Paul.  “We’re ‘The Bjorlin Trio,'” she says, and the genre is “classical crossover, similar to Andrea Bocelli or Josh Groban.”  What inspired  the family to work together?  “We grew up playing and singing classical music together, so this feels very natural. Our  father, the late Maestro Ulf Bjorlin, was a renowned conductor and composer, so it runs in the family.”
