Kristian Alfonso Days Of Our Lives
Kristian’s career took off in April 1983 when she began playing Hope Williams on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. During that time, her character fell in love with, and married, Bo Brady (Peter Reckell).
In April 1987 she left the show for a two-year stint on the nighttime soap opera Falcon Crest as Pilar Ortega for its last two seasons. Kristian went to Days briefly from April to July 1990.
This return ended in the entire town of Salem believing that Hope had died. She starred alongside Dolph Lundgren in 1993 in the film Joshua Tree (1993 film) in which she played a cop abducted by an innocent convict on the run.
In May 1994 Kristian returned to Days of Our Lives for a third time as “Gina,” an amnesiac who looked a lot like Hope.
She ended up being Hope, but not before a drawn-out storyline involving evil Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) brainwashing Hope into believing she was Princess Gina Von Amberg.
Hope, a prominent detective in the Salem Police Department in 2015 was the one to finally kill the evil Stefano Dimera, now elderly and in a wheelchair, by shooting him in cold blood in his own study at the Dimera mansion.
She and Detective Raphael “Rafe” Hernandez hid his body in a condemned building. Stefano appeared several times as a ghost as the actor Joseph Mascolo had retired, until Mascolo’s death in late 2016.
Hope’s decision to kill Stefano (and the subsequent visitations) would have repercussions that will be weighed heavily on her conscience in the years to come.
