TV Kristian Alfonso Exits "Days of Our Lives" after 37 Years

Kristian Alfonso Exits "Days of Our Lives" after 37 Years
by Nellie Andreeva
July 6, 2020



It’s an end of an era for "Days of Our Lives". Kristian Alfonso, one of the daytime drama’s most recognizable and longest-tenured stars as Hope Williams Brady, is leaving the NBC series, which she first joined in 1983.

Days of Our Lives has been a vital part of both my personal and professional journey,” the actress said in a statement on Monday.




I am forever grateful to NBC and the late Betty Corday, who took a chance on me many years ago and changed my life. I have built some lifelong friendships with my extraordinarily talented castmates. Days has one of the hardest working crews in all of television, many of whom have become part of my extended family. I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades.

Alfonso continued, “However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter. I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September. I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago. Finally, to the incredibly loyal fans of Days, many of you have been with me on this journey from the beginning. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity, love and support. I could not have done it without YOU!!!

Kristian Alfonso's Days of Our Lives co-stars react to her departure after 37 years

“It was an absolute pleasure to share the stage with you @kristianalfonso – your professionalism, talent and work ethic has inspired me so much!" co-star Freddie Smith wrote on Instagram. "Anytime we’d see each other at work, you would always greet me with a big hug and smile asking how myself and Alyssa were doing. That meant the world to me. Thank you for your kind words and advice throughout the years. I’m excited to see your next chapter!”

Kristian Alfonso Reveals why she Quit "Days of Our Lives" after 37 Years
by Michael Ausiello
July 16, 2020



"Days of Our Lives" apparently made Kristian Alfonso an offer she could refuse.

The actress told "Entertainment Tonight" in a segment that aired on Thursday that she decided to exit the NBC soap after nearly four decades when producers suggested pulling her from the show for five months before bringing her back in a new storyline.

I don’t plan on returning and popping in as others have done in the past,” she said. “I think that chapter is closed and a new one needs to be started.



Since going public earlier this month with her decision to leave "Days", Alfonso admitted to ET, “It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions,” before quickly adding, “I have no regrets.

Alfonso’s final episode as Hope, which she shot prior to the show’s coronavirus-fueled production shutdown back in March, is slated to air in October.

Victoria Konefal announces she's leaving Days of Our Lives two weeks after TV mom Kristian Alfonso's exit

Konefal played Ciara Brady, the daughter of Kristian Alfonso's Hope Brady. Speculation of Konefal's departure surfaced earlier this month following Alfonso's exit after 37 years. But the two departures aren't related, according to Deadline. Konefal is the third major departure from the NBC daytime soap opera this month. Greg Vaughn announced his exit earlier from Days earlier this week.

Kristian Alfonso: “In the last few years, Days of Our Lives is not the Days of Our Lives as I know it"

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Alfonso threw shade at the NBC daytime soap opera she announced earlier this month she was leaving after 37 years. She also confirmed she filmed her final episode earlier this year before the coronavirus shutdown.

"Days of Our Lives" Boss "Dismayed" by Kristian Alfonso's Decision to Quit
by Michael Ausiello
August 18, 2020



With Kristian Alfonso‘s "Days of Our Lives" swan song set to air in less than two months, the NBC soap’s top EP is breaking his silence on the actress’ decision to depart the show after nearly four decades as Hope.

In a new interview with EW.com, Corday — who said that he was “dismayed” by Alfonso’s exit announcement — confirmed that he did indeed propose temporarily removing Hope from the canvas.




In order to launch a new story — and we had a great story for her, we still do — I needed her off-camera for three or four months,” he explained to the site. “During that time, something very interesting happens so she comes back to Salem with a secret. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

Asked whether Alfonso — whose final episode is slated to air Oct. 15 — could reverse course and decide to stay, Corday hedged, “That’s up to Kristian.
