Days of Our Lives' Kristian Alfonso (Hope Hernandez) celebrates GRAND milestone. Learn more here--->>
Happy 36th Days of Our Lives anniversary to an outstanding actress - Kristian Alfonso who plays the role of Hope Brady. On this day (April 14) in soap history, Alfonso debuted as Hope Williams on 'Days' - a role she turned down two years earlier.
Alfonso is an American actress and also a former figure skater and fashion model. Her acting career took off in April 1983 as she started playing the role of Hope, a role which would later make her a household name worldwide. During her tenure on the NBC daytime drama, her character quickly fell in love with Bo Brady [Peter Reckell] and they later became one of the greatest supercouples of all time - with the ship name "Bope" [Bo and Hope].
Through the ages - Hope and Bo had two children together; Shawn Douglas (ex-Brandon Beemer) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal). One of the most touching moments of their history was when Bo died in her arms. Her other notable pairings include that with Aiden Jennings (ex-Daniel Cosgrove) and Rafe (Galen Gering). Check out some throwback moments below including a video of a scene when Bo and Hope first met in 1983 as we celebrate her 36th anniversary. Here's to many, many more to come.
