Taylor Walker played by Tamara Braun
Taylor Walker is the sister of Nicole and Brandon and the daughter of Fay.
In August 1998, Taylor began working as a cleaning girl at Titan, where she became friends with Eric Brady. She developed a crush on him, but he was involved with her older sister, Nicole. Nicole, who wanted desperately to become a famous model, was ashamed of her past and wanted Taylor to leave town. However, Taylor refused and grew close to Eric. She began to resent Nicole for lying to everyone and for treating her and their mother like dirt.
After Lucas Horton had a car accident, Kate hired Taylor to be his physical therapist. Lucas had a crush on Nicole and proposed that he and Taylor break up Eric and Nicole. Ever the good girl, Taylor declined. Taylor was then shocked when Nicole abruptly married Lucas. She accused her sister of stringing Eric along while using Lucas to further her career. Disgusted with Nicole, Taylor left town in May 1999.
Taylor returned to Salem in January 2011, hoping to repair her relationship with Nicole. While walking alone on the pier one day, Taylor had a chance meeting with EJ DiMera and they formed an instant connection. Taylor was completely smitten with her new mystery man… unaware that he was about to marry her sister!
