Days of Our Lives fans have loved Lauren Boles since she was a very little girl playing Ciara Brady — but she’s not so little anymore.
The young actress was born on December 4, 2003, which means she turns 17 years old yesterday! She was only five years old when she started as the daughter of soap supercouple Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) Brady.
Boles stayed in the role for seven years — until DAYS decided to age the character for a more mature storyline. However, if DAYS ever wants to add a brand-new teen scene,
It’s a shame because fans loved her so much — perhaps she could return in a new role — much like Kyle Lowder now playing Rex after having played Brady. (Sydney DiMera, anyone? Her sister is having quite a time of late and we’d love to see more of Sami’s kids all grown up. DAYS can bring back Johnny DiMera, while they’re at it.)
DAYS is hardly her only credit. She’s also played young Rachel on Glee, a patient on Grey’s Anatomy in 2017, and a guest role on the CBS smash hit NCIS: Los Angeles.
This past summer, the actress excitedly posted a picture of herself with acting legend Dustin Hoffman, admitting she was a bit starstruck. Fans certainly understand that — they adore her in much the same way!
Soap Hub hopes that Lauren Boles has the happiest of birthdays and hopes to see her onscreen again very soon. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
