Days of Our Lives Character Descriptions

Hope Williams Brady
Played by Kristian Alfonso
Written by
Jacques

Kristian was born on September 5, 1963, in Brockton, Massachusetts. She was an outstanding athlete when she won a gold medal at the Junior Olympic Figure Skating Championship at the age of 13, but this came to an end when Kristian fractured her leg. Her first acting role was at the age of 16 in the movie "The Star Maker." Kristian was asked to audition for the part of Hope Williams Brady in “Days of Our Lives” but declined. In 1983 she was asked and got it. In 1987 she left “Days” and appeared in “Falcon Crest,” “Full House,” and “Who's The Boss.” She returned in June, 1990 and left again in October of that year when her son Gino was born. In May, 1994 she returned to Days. 

Hope's mom was killed and her father Doug raised her. She went to boarding school and returned to Salem in 1984. She met Bo and they fell in love, but they had to cross many obstacles to be together. Her father had a heart attack just as she and Bo were about to make love for the first time. Though she then married Larry Welch, Bo and Hope did finally get married.

In 1990 Hope was presumed dead after an explosion: everyone thought that Hope was in the cage that was destroyed, but it was, in fact, Greta. In 1994 Hope returned, but this time she had amnesia and thought she was Gina. Later on, Hope and Bo searched for the truth about Hope's past when she was held captive by Stefano.

Stefano had transformed Hope back into Gina to help him steal a painting. But Gina had an agenda of her own: to be reunited with her one true love, John. Gina kidnapped John on his honeymoon and turned him back into the John she knew. They made love on a submarine. The real Gina was held captive in a castle, and later she escaped and locked Hope and Stefano in the room she had been held in.

Gina took over Hope's life. When she realized that John was not interested in her, she went after Bo, and she married him, but later on Bo killed Gina. Hope and Stefano were rescued. Hope was pregnant.

Hope thought that Bo was the father but learned that she had slept with John. Hope and Lexie gave birth on the same day, but their babies were switched. Hope then found out that John was the father and kept the truth from Bo. After her own baby almost died, and she found out that Stefano had switched the babies, Lexie transformed Hope again into Gina to stop Hope finding out the truth. Bo discovered that John was J.T.'s father. Glen came back to Salem to get custody of his son, J.T. and won custody of him, and later Bo and Hope filed for custody of their real son, whom Lexie had. Bo and Hope learned that Bo was indeed Zack's father. Hope visited J.T. when he was having surgery, but on her way back home she was kidnapped by evil Larry Welch. Bo found Zack with Lexie and thought that she was responsible for Hope's disappearance, and he almost killed her.

Hope was rescued, but she and Bo were attacked at Basic Black, and this was the beginning of bigger things: a serial killer started killing her friends and family. How will Hope cope with the death of her father Doug and her beloved grandmother Alice?

Hope is another heroine, much like Marlena, but she is tougher because she has been a police woman.  Like many soap characters, she has had many different jobs, including model, businesswoman, and bounty hunter. She and Bo are a devoted couple.  They met when she was a teen, but they have had years of misery and heartache, mostly due to Stefano. Now they have children and that brings them extra worries. Bo's nickname for Hope is "Fancy Face."
