Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

While I was not a Hope Williams Brady fan, I do wish Kristian Alfonso the best in her future endeavors. It is clear she has been unhappy for some time, and it was time for her to follow her instincts.

Goodbye Hope Williams Brady. I would have liked the writers to have given Hope a proper send off like they did with Eric Brady. Apparently Kristen’s decision not to return to DOOL prevented that from happening. I wish Kristen well with what ever she chooses to do in the future.

I’m going to miss Hope in general, who will become the next commissioner since Rafe and Hope are out? Why couldn’t they take the none acting Gwen with them! There is no history with anyone. The writer’s are trying to create a background for her, please keep Hope and send Gwen away ASAP!!!

OMG, isn’t Gwen the most horrible person ever? Hopefully Jake will screw up her plans to attack Abby.

I may have read this incorrectly, but I hear Rafe is coming back?
Oh, yeah—so is Gabi. I like both characters, so; fingers crossed.

Gabi belongs in a prison cell for life!

LOL- You’re so right, Mary. But, if we must have one evil biatch ( among others), I pick Gabi over Gwen any day.
Eventually, Gabi, too, will join the long list of bad girls “gone” good in Salem—
Victor and Xander should be in prison, as well. Kidnapping and switching babies are felonies.
My grandmother tells me Julie was something else in her day.
Plus—look at Nicole—–have you ever seen such goodness? Such integrity? Doesn’t she just melt your heart? NOT!!

I agree! I want Gwen to be written off DOOL as of yesterday. And I don’t want Gabi to join the long list of girls gone bad. Although she belongs in prison for life Gabi’s antics are fun to watch.

I was 9 when Hope came onscreen. She has earned every accolade and every kudos! Whatever the deal is…they should have gotten Peter Reckell back for a one-off!

I wish kristen alfonso the best. I watched her ever since she joined the show. I guess a 37 run as hope brady. Shes done everything an actress can do. I dont think u can replace a beloved charcter on the show

That was it. Okay. Thank you for your years of entertaining. Stories weren’t so great in recent years, although I did enjoy Princess Gina.

I was never a fan of either Hope or Jen, but oddly enough, I will miss both—–characters grow on us after a while. They become household names. It will certainly be weird seeing others walk in their shoes.
Kristian’s mourning did me in—-having lost a child, such scenes always evoke indelible pain.
Will we see a brand new Ciera and Hope in the near future?
And, please to not “bundle” Ben and Claire together—-I beg you, PTB!!

Ciara recast, most likely…. wouldn’t be surprised if she showed up during the Hellidays. Though Victoria was great in the role, she wasn’t there long enough to make herself completely irreplaceable. Just hope they don’t have a ridiculous age jump like they did with the New Claire (who is now actually a year older than her MOTHER should be right now) Any attempts at a Hope recast would be a huge failure, especially given this regime’s track record with recasts. Better to just leave that one alone. Certainly wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Kristian decided to come back… Read more »

Kristian ,I wish you well. I have enjoyed your work over the years on Days and you have grown mightily. I first saw you on Falcon Crest and thought, what a beautiful girl!
Now, I am anxiously waiting your arrival in Genoa City, wondering if you will be a potential partner for Jack or there to cause mayhem, I hope not. See you soon!
