The actress was a fan of DAYS from an early age telling Digest, “I grew up watching DAYS OF OUR LIVES from when I was 8 years old. I remember when Belle became a character. I remember when she grew up and Kirsten [Storms] started playing her. She was one of my favorite characters. When I got to take over the part, it was a pretty monumental event in my life.”
