Haley Chen is a fictional character on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives portrayed by Thia Megia. She is revealed to be the daughter of D.A Melinda Trask.

Her first air date was December 20th, 2018.


Haley is first seen when she's found unconscious by J.J. Deveraux at the hospital where she works as a nurse. It is revealed that Haley was attempting to commit suicide. Haley wants J.J. to forget about what he saw, but he feels an obligation to find her help, especially after his experience with planning his own suicide the year prior.

J.J. invites Haley as his date to the Horton Foundation’s New Years Eve Party at Doug’s Place. As she walks in, she overhears J.J. telling Jennifer that Haley needs help and he would like for her to meet Eric for counseling. Haley storms off, but J.J. chases after her and apologizes for overstepping any boundaries. They ring in 2019 together, only for the celebration to be interrupted by Eve Donovan bringing back J.J.’s presumed dead father Jack.

The next day at the hospital, Haley overhears her boss Dr. Kayla Johnson being upset with J.J. for not reporting Haley’s suicide attempt. Haley didn’t hear the entire conversation and immediately feels betrayed and believes J.J. told Kayla. Kayla and J.J. reassure Haley that he didn’t say anything and it was another nurse who came forward. Kayla has no choice but to take Haley off of the nursing floor until the matter is resolved. Haley apologizes to J.J. but he insists there is nothing to for her to apologize for and instead apologizes to Haley for the dramatic New Year’s Eve Party. Later on at the hospital, J.J. overhears Haley on her phone telling someone “Don’t worry. I won’t say anything to Dr. Johnson.” Kayla eventually agrees to let Haley keep her job if she gets counseling from Marlena. If Haley refuses to get counseling from Marlena Kayla will fire her. Haley is the younger sister of Melinda Trask.
