Alison Sweeney may have been sweet 16 when she joined DAYS, but fans soon found themselves loving to hate her not-so-sweet character. Though she was young, the Los Angeles native had already amassed an impressive set of credits as a child actor. She appeared in her first commercial (for Kodak) when she was 5, then starred alongside Mimi Kennedy in FAMILY MAN, as well as with Barbara Eden, Jennie Garth (Kelly, BEVERLY HILLS, 90210) and David Tom (ex-Paul, OLTL; ex-Billy, Y&R) in A BRAND NEW LIFE.
