Born Kristian-Joy Alfonso on 5th September 1963, the star actress was raised in Brockton, Massachusetts by her father Gino Alfonso and her mother, Joanne Alfonso. Her career began quite early when she joined the Junior Olympic Figure Skating Championships and emerged winner with a gold medal. But sadly, that part of her career ended when she was involved in a severe accident at the age of 13.

Becoming more popular, the beautiful actress from Massachusetts added acting to her career list and she made her first screen appearance in the 1981 movie, The Starmaker. Her performance in the movie earned her a better role in the daytime soap opera, Days of Our Lives. When Alfonso first heard about auditioning for the series, she first turned down the opportunity because she knew it would move her out of her hometown to Los Angeles. Eventually, she agreed to take a role in the series in 1983. Her role earned her a better stance among upcoming stars of her time. Her character at that time was the wife of Bo Brady, played by a famous American actor, Peter Reckell.
