The time is upon us Days of our Lives fans! This week, Alison Sweeney departs Salem in her role as Sami after over two decades of playing one of the most central roles in the history of the iconic soap opera.
NBC gave Alison, and her fans, a special send-off with this touching video package complete with retrospective clips. In it, Alison shares that she has been a fan of Days of our Lives all of her life, and to find out she would be coming to the show to play the daughter of Deidre Hall (Marlena) was something she will never forget! And that she secretly hoped that she would play the villain on the show, which is something she definitely got to experience!
Alison also shares some of her favorite scenes including when Sami bitch-slapped Nicole (Arianne Zucker) after finding out about her duplicity with baby Sydney, and the more recent standalone episode where Sami finds out that EJ (James Scott) slept with Abigail, even though that turned out to be a nightmare of EJ’s! And Alison talks about all of her leading men on DAYS, and how she was very lucky that each and every guy was wonderful to work with. Later, in an emotional moment she talks about leaving the series and is finally saluted by some of her co-stars and some of her fans, as they wish Alison well as she moves forward with her life and her career!
