"Cricket" Marie Blair Romalotti Williams
Played by Lauralee Bell
Christine's first job was as a model for Jabot Junior Cosmetics. She
became best friends with Nina Webster, who she caught sleeping with her
fiancé, Phillip Chancellor III. Christine was raped by Derek Stuart who
jumped out of a window to avoid prison. After this experience, she decided
to become a lawyer.
Her first job as an attorney was at the law firm of Whitman, Walker, and
Wilson, where she worked with Michael Baldwin. He was fired after sexually
harassing Christine. Scorned, he rented the apartment next to hers and dug a
hole to connect them. Accessing her apartment this way, he sexually
assaulted her. She was rescued by Paul Williams and Nathan Hastings, and
Michael went to prison.
Christine was married to longtime friend and rock star, Danny Romalotti.
They were divorced after Phyllis Summers claimed she was pregnant with
Danny's child. Christine worked on some cases with Paul Williams, and they
fell in love and were married. Paul really wanted to have children but
because of her career and his being temporarily impotent after being run
over by Phyllis, they never did.
Michael returned a self-proclaimed changed man. Christine testified for
him so that he could practice law again. Eventually, he persuaded her to
join him in starting a law firm. She was very successful there and got a
client in Hong Kong. Paul chose not to join her in the firm and they grew
distant. Christine turned down a job in Australia so that she could try and
mend her marriage, but she found her husband in the arms of Isabella.
Christine and Michael have grown very close since working together and
are currently engaged.
