13. DOOL’s Arianna Hernandez
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans love the Hernandez clan. Siblings Rafe, Gabi, and Dario have an amazing bond and parents Adrianna and Eduardo are quite the characters. But, does anyone remember the fourth child to the family? Arianna Hernandez was the sister to Gabi, Rafe, and Dario and made quite the impact on Days. She had an incredible love affair with Brady Black, a nice friendship with Melanie Jonas, and was a feisty and strong-willed young lady. She passed away tragically in 2010 when she was hit by a car. To add a layer to her demise, she was the only one who knew and could incriminate Sami Brady when it came to the E.J.’s shooting before she passed away.
