Blake admitted there's a lot he'll miss about "Days" -- especially the people. "[Rachel Melvin (Chelsea) and I] had a really great opportunity to get to know each other as actors ... I think she and I got the closest, but you know, I'm going to miss working with Darin (Brooks; Max) and Molly (Burnett; Melanie) and Shelley (Hennig; Stephanie) and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie). It's kind of basically the people you end up getting close to as characters who are the ones you end up getting close to as a person."
He doesn't rule out a return to Salem at some point. But for now, Blake's "excited for the next chapter and to do other kinds of stuff."
Fans of Debra Messing may have already caught Blake's recurring role on the second season her USA series, "The Starter Wife." We'd love to see him take on another primetime role, or maybe jump to another soap for a while.
Only time will tell what the future holds for this talented guy, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye out for him in the weeks and months to come.
What did you think of Nick's exit storyline?
