Soap research is pretty easy now, but she wouldn't have had the convenience of youtube. And digging up info about Sami and Lucas and the Bradys/Hortons/Roberts is one thing; the Wesleys is another.

It's kind of odd that Nadia Bjorlin was apparently unaware that Nancy and Craig despised Mike, since that was never a secret. I guess that she just forgot about that part of the character history, but she made it sound like she had never been aware of that fact in the first place.
I wouldn't doubt that she wasn't aware of it. Chloe hadn't even been thought of when all of that was going on and I don't think they intended for Nancy and Craig to stay past that storyline. I can see how she wouldn't know about it since it didn't really concern her or her character when she came on.
If I remember correctly, Kate Mansi had similar trouble back when she started and misspoke about her character's relation to Sonny. I think all hell broke out on twitter over that one, haha. I just don't think everyone researches their family history when they begin playing a character (unlike Chandler Massey, who watched hours of clips and assumed that Will shot EJ before the writers did).
Re: the bolded...yeah, that's a fair assumption. I guess that it just seems weird to me because if I were an actor, I'd approach a role the same way that Chandler Massey did. I can't imagine not
researching the histories of my character's parents, but that's just me.
