‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Kristian Alfonso Opens Up About What She’s Learned About The Daytime Television Industry
Kristian told the publication, “I actually really thought about leaving Days four years ago. And I didn’t. I stayed. Ken Corday asked me not to leave, so I stayed for him. I don’t regret my decision because Ken Corday has been truly wonderful to me. I love his family. I love his wife. I’ve always felt such great love and support from the Corday family. So I have no regrets about staying. Sometimes things happen in families and you need to take a breather, but that doesn’t mean your love diminishes.”
Krisitan also said that no matter how big or how successful you become, you always still have to work hard or at least just as hard as you did during your first day on the job.
She said, “Sometimes, on the weekend, I’d be sitting at the kitchen table all weekend thinking about how I’m going to learn all this dialogue, because it would be so much. But I have to be prepared. Days was paying me a very generous salary, so I wanted to make sure they got even more for their money. And because it’s a total workout to memorize all that dialogue, I even hired someone to come to the house and run dialogue with me the last few years. That way, when I walked onto set on Monday mornings, I knew all eight and a half episodes.”
