Leave it to the master interviewer the iconic Larry King to pose solid questions to Alison Sweeney in this must-see sit down chit chat with the former Sami Brady of Days of our Lives! 

In the latest episode of Larry King Now at Ora.TV, Sweeney talks departing DAYS, hosting The Biggest Loser, directing on the soaps,  her roles on projects with the Hallmark Channel, her thoughts on the reality, soap and television landscape, health and sleep, and so much more!

When discussing if DAYS Sami was a true villainess, Alison related to Larry: “The head writer (of DAYS) at the time, Jim Reilly, who created my character had this amazing idea that I was the younger sister to the pretty one and the skinny sister, and the wonderful sister that everybody loved.  And my character was always “less than” and always looking up to her big sister, and then Sami had this sort of tragic set of circumstances happen! She found a terrible thing about her mom …  having an affair on her dad … and she (Sami) was raped as a teenager.  So she went through these dark times, and felt so alone that she sort of spends the rest of her time … 22 years in Salem like, “no one will hand me anything. I f I want something I am going to have to go at get it!”  And so that was sort of my perception of this character …  she wasn’t a villainess on purpose to hurt other people … she is like, “If everybody did it my way, no one would get hurt!”

Alison also discussed Sami’s botched trips to the altar revealing: “At final count Sami attempted to get married 15 times …and successfully married 4 0r 5 times!”

In a touching moment, Alison is brought to tears when discussing one of the most memorable moments of her life, check out what she says!

I don’t miss Sami on Days. I think EJami had run its course. If Sami returns to Salem I will be happy to see her. Happy for Alison’s work with Hallmark. I wish her well whatever she does.

I started to watch DAYS back in ’95-’96 during the time when Austin, Carrie, Lucas, and Sami were first introduced-during summer vacations. I loved Austin and Carrie. I remember Lucas and Sami scheming to break-up Austin and Carrie. What great memories-sleeping in until 1:00 p.m.-only to wake up in time for DAYS. #lifeofateen
Around that time, I also loved John and Marlena. That was when, Robert Kelker Kelly played Bo and Lisa Rinna played Billie. Also, I think Hope was back-thinking she was Princess Gina. #fondmemories

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 . #❤️ #😘”
