Biography

Some child’s dream was actually Judi Evans’ reality: She grew up traveling in a circus with her family. Her parents were trapeze artists, her brothers juggled, and Evans was a baby clown.

The Montebello, California native eventually turned to acting, making her debut as sexually abused teen Beth Raines on Guiding Light in 1983.

Upon leaving the New York-based soap in 1986, Evans headed home to California. There she landed her next role as Adrienne Johnson on Days of our Lives. Soap stints on Another World (as Paulina Cory) and As the World Turns (as Maeve Stone) followed, as well as a new gig on Days as Bonnie Lockhart.

Over the years, Evans has also appeared in several made-for-TV movies. She returned to Days in her original role of Adrienne in 2010. When she’s not appearing on the NBC soap, she tackles her other job as Sales Director at Rose Hills Memorial Park and Mortuary, selling cemetery plots.

The actress and her family live in Orange County.
