NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Did Kristian Alfonso Just Shade DOOL?
“I’ve been there for an incredibly long time and am hugely grateful that I was able to be a part of the ‘Days of Our Lives’ family for as long as I was. But in the last few years, ‘Days of Our Lives’ is not the ‘Days of Our Lives’ as I know it,” she shared with the magazine in a new interview.
The actress also added that the timing of her departure is just about right as she filmed her last episode right before the coronavirus outbreak suspended filming for the film and television industry back in mid-March. ‘Days of Our Lives’ fans can expect to see Kristian as Hope Brady one last time later this fall.
Adding that this was only just decided, nothing was planned in terms for Hope Brady’s exit story. Krisitan explained, “My last episode will air, as of right now, October 15. … I would have liked to have given the fans that have been so devoted to ‘Days of Our Lives’ all of these years a final goodbye, and not, ‘Oh, she’s out looking for someone,’ or ‘She’s upstairs cleaning her room’ or ‘She’s taken a trip.’”
