Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Kim Coles Opens Up About What’s Next For Nurse Whitley

In a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, Kim Coles, who many fans might recognize from Living Single, said that when she was first approached joining the cast of the hit Peacock soap, she didn’t say yes right away, but that was for a good reason. Kim put it this way, “I don’t fancy myself a dramatic actress, but something in me said, ‘Take this on, this is gonna be a really cool challenge,’ and why couldn’t I do it? It was different than anything I’d ever done before. I have not done a lot of drama, so I was really intrigued by and challenged by the depths of where we were going to be going.”

But now that she’s officially a resident of Salem, Kim is excited about what’s to come for her character. When asked what fans can expect from Nurse Whitley, Kim said, “I usually play sweet, loving, good people. I’m not saying she’s not good but she’s complex. I don’t think I’ve ever played anybody this complex before. Nothing I’ve ever done involved kidnapping a whole man, and I didn’t know that going in. I just knew that this was someone who had experienced some loss and had a psychological break of some kind and was going to act out this break in a very particular way.”

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Kim Has Always Been A Huge Fan Of The Show

What’s more, Kim said that she’s always been a huge fan of Days of Our Lives. “So, imagine my joy of meeting Deidre Hall [Marlena]. She and I were in the makeup room together and I looked over and I go, ‘Oh, my God, that is Dr. Marlena Evans.’ And because there were still Covid regulations, they had these partitions up. So she turns to me and says, ‘Hey, Jackée [Harry, Paulina].’ Now, I had on the wig where I looked like Paulina, and she didn’t really get a good look at me. I said, ‘Oh, no, I’m Nurse Whitley.’ She was like, ‘Oh, my goodness.’”
