Los Angeles – Soap opera star Alison Sweeney has departed from “Days of Our Lives” after appearing on the show for 21 years. As reported by WebProNews, Sweeney who has played Sami Brady since joining the popular soap opera in 1993, wrote a letter to her friends via social media following the airing of her final “Days” appearance.
Sweeney is quoted as writing on her personal Facebook account, “When I first found out I was auditioning for Days (in September of 1992), I flipped out!! It was quite literally a dream come true for me because I’d been a mildly obsessed Days of our Lives fan for several years.”
The letter continues, “I’ve never forgotten what it felt like to tune in every day, anxious to find out what was going to happen to my favorite character… What I’m trying to say, is that I took that fan experience into every storyline I was involved with over the last two decades… I always felt the audience watching at home. It has always mattered to me to tell the story as best as I possibly could.”
Sweeney stated in an interview earlier this year that her decision to leave the show was based on a desire to spend more time with her family.
