Days of our Lives favorite Kristian Alfonso (Hope) was in Toronto Canada last week to meet and greets fans for the Days of our Lives 45 years: A Celebration in Photos. Alfonso took some time to chat with Dose.ca for an interesting interview on Hope’s past, present and future. A couple of comments that struck us were Alfonso’s thoughts on the Carly/Bo/Hope triangle that eventually faded away, her desire to have her son Shawn-D come back to the Salem fold and Princess Gina making a comeback. Here are few excerpts below:
Kristian on her thoughts on the Carly/Bo/Hope triangle: “The storyline with Carly…That could have been an interesting and fascinating story with a lot of twists and turns. Unfortunately, I think it all happened so fast. There were so many things that didn’t add up as far as character-driven [storyline]. Why would all of a sudden this woman [Carly] be sleeping in not just her [Hope] house, but in her bed? Why would it not be the guest room? Or Shawn’s room? Or Ciara’s? Why would that not happen? There were too many things that were contradicting and that didn’t flow but it could have been a very interesting story. (Former head writer), Dena Higley’s a good writer, she’s a very good writer. I think things just got pushed too quickly so there were beats that were greatly missed.”
Kristian on wanting Shawn-Douglas to be put back on the canvas, if she would want Jason Cook and/or Brandon Beemer to return: “Well, Jason Cook is the original! Either of “my” sons. I just spoke to Jason the other day – he’s my boy! I’ve known him since he was a teenager. Whenever I sit with him, I go “You’re my boy!” He’s such a sweetheart. He’s very talented. He’s a director as well and he writes. It was wonderful working with Brandon as well though. I think Hope needs that connection to her son as well. We need to get him off the boat and back to Salem!”
Kristian on Stefano turning Hope into Princess Gina and John into the Pawn to get “The Egg”!: “We come to find out that Stefano really needs them to acquire this Anastasia Egg that is worth quite a bit of money, and there’s not just the Anastasia Egg…but also something else! He needs Princess Gina and The Pawn back to uncover it.”
So what are your thoughts on Kristian’s comments on the Carly storyline? Which Shawn-D would you like to see return? And are you “in” to seeing another go-round with Princess Gina? Let us know!
