Things are fairly bright and beautiful for her alter-ego, and the same can be said for star Krista Allen.
Happy Birthday, Krista Allen
And that’s because she was born on April 5, 1971, in Ventura, California, which means that this beloved star is turning 52 years old today! Despite majoring in education at Austin (TX) Community College and then landing an internship as a kindergarten teacher, Allen’s aspirations to be an actress won out, and she soon decamped for Los Angeles.
She made her professional debut in 1994 as the title seductress in a series of soft-core made-for-TV movies inspired by the Emmanuelle character.
Several guest starring credits followed — Patty on High Tide, Page Tanner on Diagnosis: Murder, and Crystal Clark on Married…With Children, to name a few — and soon after, Allen was tapped to replace the outgoing Lisa Rinna as Billie Reed on Days of our Lives. That role lasted from 1996 to 1999.
One year, and several more additions to her resume later, Allen landed a spot on Baywatch: Hawaii Nights. Among a plethora of other works that include the Jim Carrey-starring Liar Liar, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind [on which she met future paramour George Clooney], and recurring parts on Charmed, CSI, Fastlane, and What About Brian. Allen appeared in several reality series: Fast Cars and Superstars: The Gillette Young Guns Celebrity Race, Denise Richards: It’s Complicated, and Love Bites.
Since December 2021, Allen has played Dr. Taylor Hayes on The Bold and the Beautiful, a character originally helmed by Hunter Tylo. This marked a homecoming of sorts for Allen, as she’d previously had a short run on the serial as Shelly in 1995.
Allen is a proud vegan, a director/spokesperson for the non-profit organization R.I.S.E. & Stand, formerly owned and operated her own T-shirt line [SuperEXcellent, née Sex Brand], and is a mother to son Jacob “Jake” Nolan Moritt (born July 12, 1997).
