All The Actresses Who Have Played Ciara On Days Of Our Lives

Ciara Brady has become one of the most beloved "Days of Our Lives" characters of all time. Of course, it doesn't hurt that she's a legacy character who was born to one of the most iconic soap opera couples ever, Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso), per We Love Soaps

Bo and Hope conceived Ciara shortly after suffering the loss of their young son, Zack, who died from injuries he sustained after being hit by a car. The death was one of the saddest in "Days of Our Lives" history and caused a rift between Bo and Hope.

However, after looking for comfort in each other, the two conceived Ciara (via Soaps in Depth). Her birth helped bring Bo and Hope back together, and they were over the moon about welcoming the little girl into their family, which also consisted of their oldest son, Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer).

In the early days of the character, Ciara was played by twins Dakoda and Danica Hobbs, per Soap Central. However, over the years, "Days of Our Lives" viewers have watched her grow into an adult, which has caused a few casting changes along the way.

Lauren Boles won over fans as a young Ciara Brady

As Ciara Brady began to grow older, "Days of Our Lives" cast young actress Lauren Boles in the role in 2008. Fans began to fall in love with the little girl who portrayed the legacy character, and she was even given some big storylines of her own. 

At one point, Ciara was kidnapped by a dangerous man named Kyle, who worked alongside his sister and her boyfriend to hold the little girl for ransom, per Soaps in Depth. To make matters worse, one of Bo and Hope Brady's co-workers, a corrupt cop named Dean, was behind the operation and planned to extort the wealthy Brady family. Thankfully, the Salem police figured out what was going on and ended up saving Ciara from her kidnappers.

Boles continued to portray the role until 2015, when Ciara fell victim to SORAS, or "soap opera rapid aging syndrome," and was recast as a teenager. However, the young actress shared a sweet goodbye message to "Days of Our Lives" fans and the character of Ciara (via Soap Central). 

"My last episode airing was on September 30, 2015. I hope you had the chance to watch it," Boles wrote on Instagram following her exit from the show. "Even though I just played the role Ciara, there's always going to be a little bit of her inside me. I'll miss you, but I hope to come visit soon!"

Following Boles' departure, Ciara quickly became a member of Salem's teen scene.

Vivian Jovanni took over the role of Ciara Brady in 2015

"Days of Our Lives" opted to cast actress Vivan Jovanni in the role of a teenage Ciara Brady in October 2015, per We Love Soaps. Fans watched as the young adult navigated her tough teen years without her father, Bo Brady, who had left Salem and been gone for years. 

During this time, Ciara's mother, Hope Brady, began dating a man named Aiden Jennings, and Ciara became close to Aiden's son, Chase Jennings. The pair also hung out with other teens like Theo Carver, Claire Brady, and Joey Johnson. Although Jovanni's Ciara wasn't long in Salem, she did tackle some very serious subject matter while in the role.

During Ciara's teenage years, she was sexually assaulted by Chase, who had become her close friend. Following the storyline, Jovanni admitted that she was a bit apprehensive about filming the scenes. "I was nervous at first, but also very grateful to be getting the opportunity to explore this complex and layered storyline," she told TV Source Magazine.

Jovanni later left "Days of Our Lives" in May 2017 (via Soaps in Depth), claiming that the decision to exit the role was mutual between herself and the production. "I am eternally grateful for the opportunity, love and support I received from everyone at 'Days' and the fans," the actress told Serial Scoop after leaving the soap.

Victoria Konefal has taken Ciara Brady into adulthood

After Vivian Jovanni's departure from "Days of Our Lives" in 2017, the sudser announced that actress Victoria Konefal would be taking on the role. She began airing on the soap in December 2017, notes Soap Opera Network

The new Ciara Brady quickly won over fans and began to couple up with reformed serial killer Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson). The pair were given the nickname "Cin" by viewers and have become one of the show's most interesting and entertaining couples (via Paper Magazine).

Ciara was forced to defend her love for Ben to many, including her own family. However, the couple continued to grow closer by the day. They eventually got married and went on to suffer many ups and downs (via Soaps in Depth). 

But they proved that their love was real by finding their way back to each other. Ciara and Ben also welcomed a child together in 2022, a little boy that they named Bo after Ciara's late father, according to

Konefal has continued to gain fans in the role of Ciara. However, the actress has big career aspirations, and "Days of Our Lives" has accommodated that, giving her a recurring status so that she has the freedom to take on other roles and pop in and out of Salem at different times, per Soap Central.

Ciara continues to be one of the most beloved young characters on the soap, and fans can't wait to see what's in store for her in the future.
