When it comes to teens behaving badly, Claire Brady has the market cornered on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).
“It’s all about me” is her mantra, and she’ll pull any trick in the book to get the attention she craves. (Remember how she intercepted Ciara’s declaration of love to Theo?) Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) really kicked things into naughty gear when she exposed Rafe’s (Galen Gering) one-night stand with Sami (Alison Sweeney) at his wedding to Hope (Kristian Alfonso).
Claire’s not the only misbehaved teen in Days history. Here are a few others who were just as bad as she is.
Poor Tom and Alice had their hands full when their rebellious granddaughter, Julie, moved in with them. The poor teenager felt abandoned by her parents, who had relocated to Europe, so she started acting out. Things reached a breaking point when she shoplifted a fur stole from Bartlett’s Department Store.
When Don Craig’s (Jed Allan) daughter, Donna (Tracey Bregman) surfaced in Salem, she was a bona fide wild child. She was instantly jealous of stepmom-to-be Marlena (Deidre Hall) and ended up pregnant at “sweet” 16, but ultimately suffered a miscarriage. Later, Donna got tangled up with a loan shark and a porn ring.
Eve (then played Charlotte Ross) became a teen prostitute upon arriving in Salem and plotting to destroy her father Shane’s (Charles Shaughnessy) marriage to Kimberly (Patsy Pease). She got in trouble with the law when she stole a car and hit Sarah Horton. Eve also wreaked havoc on her crush Frankie’s high school romance with Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) by conniving to win him over.
Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) long list of schemes included kidnapping her baby sister Belle and plotting to put her up for adoption; drugging Austin (Patrick Muldoon) to have sex with him; and lying about her son Will’s paternity. In between all that, she masterfully changed paternity test results in the hospital computer system and shot and castrated Alan Harris to avenge her rape.
Mean girl Jan (Heather Olson) wreaked havoc on Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) and lovebirds Shawn and Belle during their high school years. Aside from planting a dead rat in Chloe’s locker, she also took naked photos of her in the gym showers, showed them at the Last Blast Dance, and posted them on the Internet. Later, Jan manipulated Shawn into agreeing to marry her, after Paul raped her and got her pregnant, devastating his girlfriend Belle.
