Who is the actress who plays Chloe on Days of Our Lives?
—Alice P., Alabama

Nadia Bjorlin plays the role of musical prodigy Chloe Lane. And it's a role Bjorlin, 21, was born to play. Her father, Ulf Bjorlin, who died when she was 12, was a Swedish conductor and composer. (She gets her exotic looks from her mother, who is Persian.) She plays the piano, flute, and is learning to play guitar. In 1996, the choir she was in won gold at the International Vocal Competition, and she took first place in the Metro Lyric Opera Competition in New York City in 1999. Bjorlin also performed and sang with the Palm Beach Opera for two years. She attended the Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute. Bjorlin was born in Newport, R.I., but her family moved back to Sweden when she was a few months old, staying until she was 7. She decided to concentrate on acting after graduating from high school. One week after getting an agent, she landed the role on Days of Our Lives.
