April 14th will mark Kristian's 30th year on the show

 

How did 3 decades pass?

it's shocking, she moved from Massachusetts to LA to do Days, she was a baby. She can't wrap her head around the time warp. She said if the 30 years have gone by in a blink, then it's cause she's having a great time

 

What's your most magical memory?

It happened before she got to Days, she arrived at Grand Central Station on her first trip to Manhatten, looked up and saw this huge lit up billboard for that weeks Time Magazine, a cover story for Doug and Julie. She was awestruck, and then she got cast as their daughter. that was crazy

 

Toughest Storyline?

When she did quadruple duty during the Princess Gina plot.  She was playing Hope & Gina, Hope as Gina and Gina as Hope. The continuity was a nightmare. She fell asleep every night with scripts on her chest, but she loved every moment of it

 

Ever worry about getting the ax, especially since it happened to Deidre Hall?

Of course, cause you hear so many rumors in the NBC hallways. When you take things for granted, you settle, and she doesn't ever want to be that person. There's always someone younger, prettier and taller who could probably do the job better. That's why, 30 years later, she comes to work ready to earn every cent.

Too bad they didn't ask her if there's any story planned.

 

I know she's tight with Corday but I'm sure she's seen plenty of actors who were tight and then dumped. She probably means what she's saying.

Alfonso is such a diva.  She deserves more than the poor man's soap opera Days of Our Lives  This woman deserved to be a super star bigger than Falcon Crest.

I wish this was a video interview because Kristian is fun to watch during those interviews, I love her style.

 

I can't believe its already been 30 years for her it seemed like it was just yesterday when I first saw her in Salem. She was so awesome that first year in 1983 with Bo.

She says there's story for her coming up. We shall see.

 

Thanks for posting. She's one of my favorites, and yes, Bo & Hope are a definite strong No. 2 of all-time most popular supercouples.

I'm more of a Nightime Hope fan myself.  And I love, love, LOVVVED her scenes with both Julie Pinson and Crystal Chappell.  IMO, she was at her best when acting opposite Chappell.  THAT is when she was really bringing her A-Game imo.

After all the twitter hoopla and Chappell's book, I'm not really sure how much of that was acting and how much of that was using the script as an outlet.

 

 

Fast forward to 3:30 onwards

Yea, I want the Alfonso/Chappell dish.  IMO, Chappell really raised Alfonso's acting level and I wish she were still there for that reason alone

SO glad you posted those scenes by the way.  That was the exact episode where I was like WOW!  THIS could be a POWERHOUSE rivalry that could have lasted YEARS.   SUCH a wasted opportunity.  They could have been DAYS's answer to Ashley/Nikki.

CC basically talked about how her and KA did not get along in real life, basically almost came to blows in a scene, and KA was out to - and did - get her fired. Something that has been gossiped about since it happened, along with others in her story.

I personally think CC got fired cause she was just awful. She constantly looked like she was on something, and didn't even bother to try to do any real acting.
