Although Days of our Lives is her first daytime role, Arianne is no stranger to television, having appeared in several national commercials, including Mazda Miata and McDonald's, where she got to laugh at a joke-cracking McNugget. Theater credits include Babe Bortrelle in Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart
, Maude in A Coupla White Chicks
, and Elaine in Neil Simon's Last of the Little Red Hot Lovers
. Arianne continues to study theater at the Howard Fine Studios in Los Angeles.
When not living the rigorous life of a young actress, Arianne's other passions include horseback riding, skiing, and tae kwon do, in which she has a green belt. A lover of all sports, Arianne has also taken an interest in golf.
For a brief period of time, Zucker used an alternate spelling of her show biz name -- Zuker. She celebrates her birthday on June 3.
