Kristian Alfonso had an interview with Soap Opera Digest where she opened up about her exit from the soap opera, and she had some surprising things to say.
“I’ve been there for an incredibly long time and am hugely grateful that I was able to be a part of the Days of Our Lives family for as long as I was. But in the last few years, Days of Our Lives is not the Days of Our Lives as I know it,” she said.
She also confirmed that she shot her remaining scenes before production shut down back in March.
“Because this was only just decided, nothing was planned in terms of story,” Alfonso said. “My last episode will air, as of right now, October 15. … I would have liked to have given the fans that have been so devoted to Days of Our Lives all of these years a final goodbye, and not, ‘Oh, she’s out looking for someone,’ or ‘She’s upstairs cleaning her room’ or ‘She’s taken a trip.'”
The actress also confirmed that she won’t be returning to the soap opera again once filming resumes, which she also said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I’m not coming back,” she said. “I’ve had a great run and so many wonderful moments on the show and worked with so many wonderful people. It’s time for me to start a new chapter professionally. The time has come.”
