At A Glance

Alison Sweeney joined the cast of NBC's Days of our Lives on January 6, 1993, at the age of 16. Sweeney has taken her character, Sami Brady, from a rebellious teen to a devoted single mother with many detours along the way. Sami has tackled a variety of controversial storylines including bulimia, date rape, teen pregnancy, and capital punishment.

Sweeney's performance has garnered numerous awards. She won the Soap Opera Digest Awards four times (1986, 1998, 1999 and 2001) for the role of "Favorite Villain" and the award for "Favorite Good Girl" in 2001. Sweeney also won the award for "America's Favorite Villain" at the 29th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Sweeney is also an accomplished author. Her book, All The Days of My Life (So Far), was published in 2004 to critical acclaim. The book gives audiences a glimpse into Sweeney's personal life by describing her experience as a child actor, life on the set of Days of our Lives, painful high school memories, and the struggle to lose weight and keep it off.

Sweeney also took on a new role, producer, for several projects, one of which was an Internet-based episodic program.

Sweeney's television credits also include Las Vegas, Friends, and American Dreams.

Sweeney resides in Los Angeles with her husband, a Los Angeles Highway Patrol Officer, and their two children.
