She said the following about leaving the NBC soap opera:
“Days of Our Lives has been a vital part of both my personal and professional journey. I am forever grateful to NBC and the late Betty Corday, who took a chance on me many years ago and changed my life. I have built some lifelong friendships with my extraordinarily talented castmates. Days has one of the hardest working crews in all of television, many of whom have become part of my extended family.
I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter. I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September. I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.
Finally — to the incredibly loyal fans of Days — many of you have been with me on this journey from the beginning. I cannot thank you enough for your generousity, love and support. I could not have done it without YOU!!!”
Lots of Love,
It was announced last week that production would resume on the series on September 1st. Days co-star Freddie Smith discussed Alfonso’s departure in a video.
What do you think? Are you surprised by Alfonso’s exit? Will you miss her character on Days of Our Lives?
