Days of Our Lives’ Victoria Konefal
Ciara took the first step in recovering her memories and regretted it instantly as she discovered that Claire had tried to kill her. The news led to her pushing Ben further away as she sought out comfort from Theo. It was so refreshing to see Victoria’s performance this week. It was something different… and something powerful. I know Cin fans are dying for those two to reunite soon - as are we - but this storyline has given both characters a freedom and a reason to shine. We are excited to see where it goes.
