However, the decision still came as quite the shock for her fellow ‘Days of Our Lives’ co-stars, even though that’s not what Kristian had intended.
“I didn’t want it to be a shock or a surprise when all the sudden, you know, Hope just appears in the attic or she’s off looking for someone or maybe she’s taken a trip or she’s, I don’t know what they would come up with,” the actress admitted. With that said though, Kristian Alfonso says that everyone has been very supportive so far.
“I have to say that some of them have really, definitely choked me up because I didn’t realize that certain people, they got me and they understood that everything I did was to better ‘Days of Our Lives’ and not necessarily myself, personally, but whoever was in the scene with me or something that was happening,” she said. “It’s not just a workplace, but we’ve shared so many moments in our lives. But I’m very grateful for all of it.”
