If the new nurse in Salem looks familiar, it’s because Nurse Whitley on DAYS OF OUR LIVES is being played by actress Kim Coles, who is recognizable from her numerous roles in film and television. After getting her start on the sketch comedy series IN LIVING COLOR, she starred as Synclaire James on the popular sitcom LIVING SINGLE and Judy Owens on THE GEENA DAVIS SHOW. Cole can also be seen in episodes of shows like FRASIER, SIX FEET UNDER, THE PARKERS, and BABY DADDY.
Coles made her daytime debut in the episode of DAYS that premiered on May 31, though at this point, it’s unclear how long her run as Nurse Whitley will last. But given that she’s clearly up to no good, it likely won’t last very long!
Nurse Whitley was first seen tending to Colin Bedford at the hospital and reacting badly when he initially confused her with Paulina Price, the woman he’d tried to kill. She scolded him for hurting Mayor Abe Carver and urged him to repent his sins if he wanted to get into heaven.
Later, Whitley entered Abe’s room and since he was suffering from amnesia and didn’t know who anyone was, he also believed her to be his wife, Paulina. However, this time, the nurse didn’t correct him and simply smiled. She expressed her concern for Abe’s safety, given that his attacker is also in the same hospital, and decided to whisk him away for his own protection!
Stay tuned to see what Whitley has in store for Abe… and the rest of his family!
