The actress told the site, “I was taken aback when he said that they wanted, he and [producer] Albert wanted to take me off camera for four to five months. It was not something that had ever been discussed but that’s what it was, and to come back in five to six months, or four to five months — whatever that time frame was — I just thought, you know what, it’s time to really write a new chapter.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for ‘Days of Our Lives’ fans to respond to her comments. Many have said, “I have never invested in ‘Days of Our Lives’, but respected Kristian for her contribution to daytime. What is shocking and embarrassing is that she was never nominated for a Daytime Emmy in her three decades on the show!” along with, “I think for Hope to leave for a while would be good for the character. I don’t think that was the reason, actors come and go all the time. Either a huge pay cut or something else. I don’t think it’s coincidental that all characters close to Hope are gone.”
Another fan wrote, “There’s definitely a lot more to this story, and bridges have apparently been burned if she made it clear she wouldn’t return even for guest stints. Good for her, though, to be leaving on her own terms.”
