Days of our Lives Star Stacy Haiduk Celebrates Her Birthday

Days of our Lives star Stacy Haiduk with the Soap Hub logo.Happy birthday, Stacy Haiduk.

Days of our Lives‘ Kristen DiMera has meddled in many lives over the years, and now she is conspiring with Alex. But actress Stacy Haiduk is probably less concerned about her frequently-in-trouble alter ego and more focused on getting her party on.

Happy Birthday, Stacy Haiduk!

And that’s because she was born on April 24, 1968, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which means that this talented soap-hopping performer is turning 56 years old today! Shortly after playing “Laundromat Lady” in the 1987 film Magic Sticks, Haiduk was cast in Superboy, a live-action adaption of the same-titled DC Comics comic book.

She achieved national recognition through her portrayal of Lana Lang, but after the series came to a halt in 1992 — after 100 episodes — Haiduk struggled to find her next significant role.

First up was a guest appearance on Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, which was followed by a small role in the Sean Young-starring TV movie Sketch Artist. She was a part of the inaugural cast of Aaron Spelling’s serial The Round Table, but it was axed after a mere five episodes.

Next, Haiduk was hired to play Lieutenant Commander Katherine Hitchcock in the science fiction series seaQuest — though she did not continue past the first season. Subsequently, she guest-starred in several primetime programs, including Nash Bridges, Profiler, Charmed, and NCIS.

She also appeared in a number of TV movies (including A Perfect Stranger and The Beneficiary) and had recurring roles on Due South, Kindred: The Embraced, Melrose Place, and Brimstone.

Her one-year stint on All My Children — where she played businesswoman Hannah Nichols — served as Haiduk’s introduction to the world of daytime dramas. Afterward, she played characters on The Young and the Restless — Patty Williams (AKA Mary Jane Benson) and Dr. Emily Peterson and also on Days of our Lives — Warden Smith.

Haiduk has played Days of our Lives villainess Kristen DiMera — a character originally embodied by Haiduk’s former YR co-star Eileen Davidson — (on and off) since August 21, 2018.
