Nadia Bjorlin is back on Days of Our Lives. She recently spoke to Soap Opera Weekly about her return to the role of Chloe:

Back on Days
Soap Opera Weekly: Are you excited to be back at Days of Our Lives?
Nadia Bjorlin: I am. I really am. It's fun around here. I missed it.

Weekly: Were there are lot of happy reunions on-set?
Bjorlin: It was so much fun to see and be able to work with Jay (Kenneth Johnson, Philip) again. I'd seen him here and there while I was gone, but it wasn't the same.

Weekly: Will you give us a rundown of what you were up to since you left Days of Our Lives?
Bjorlin: The reason I left Days of Our Lives was because the pilot I did for UPN - Sex,Love and Secrets -  got picked up. Once they changed the title to that, I knew it was doomed. It sounded like a rip-off of Sex, Lies and Videotape. It was originally called Wild Life and was actually a good show, but it was on the wrong network and wasn't advertised well.

Nobody knew it was on the air. I did do some guest-starring things on other prime-time shows, like Jake in Progress and Out of Preactice. Then I did this quirky independent film called If I Had Known I Was a Genius with Whoopi Goldberg, Sharon Stone, Della Reese and Tara Reid. I got to meet Whoopi and Sharon, but I didn't get to do any scenes with them. Still, you sort of feel like, Wow! This is something, just to be working on something they're working on. That hasn't come out yet. I also did that fun, crazy movie Redline, which I really enjoyed.

Weekly: Is there anything different about being on Days of Our Lives this time around?
Bjorlin: I'm getting to work with people I hadn't gotten to work with before. It's funny, as many years as I was here, I never got to work with Deidre Hall (Marlena) or Alison Sweeney (Sami). I just had a little scene with both of them, so that's interesting. I guess now that Chloe is considered an adult, I'll get to have more scenes with the actual grown-ups.

That will be fun. Obviously, I love working with the people I used to and [who] I know, but it's also fun to work with new people, because you don't know what they're going to do in a scene.
