Did you know that one of these Days of Our Lives actresses grew up in the circus? Sure it’s hard to believe these glamorous ladies, Kristian Alfonso, Judi Evans, or Nadia Bjorlin could have grown up that way, but one did indeed travel around with her family in the family business.

Do you think you know which star it is? If not, read on to find out the answer.

First we have…
Gorgeous Kristian Alfonso grew up in Brockton, Massachusetts. As a teen, she was an above average student who excelled at dance and ice skating… but she wasn’t part of a circus.

She began modeling at an early age, having adorned 30 international magazines by the age of 15. One of those magazines was seen by the casting director of Days of Our Lives, and the rest is history.

Next we have…
Beautiful Judi Evans, was born and raised in California. But she did indeed spend her childhood traveling with the family circus as the “baby clown.”

While she did that, her parents were trapeze artists and her three older brothers juggled and handled props. After that, she hit daytime gold playing her Emmy winning role as Beth Raines on Guiding Light.

Finally we have…
Nadia Bjorlin was one of six children born to world renowned Swedish Maestro Ulf Bjorlin and his Persian wife, Fary. She began her life in Newport, Rhode Island but the family soon moved to her father’s native Sweden.

Her father’s career fed her love of music and she became an accomplished opera singer. She started singing professionally by the age of eight. As crazy as the music world may be, she did not grow up in the circus.
