Days of Our Lives Spoilers : NBC will replace Konefal with a brand new actress
Days of our lives spoilers tease that Nobody was more surprised than Victoria Konefal when she suddenly found herself one half of a Days of Our Lives supercouple. “I had no idea it would take off like that,” she admits. “I had an inkling that Ben and Ciara might become popular, just because the recipe was perfect. He’s a bad boy, she’s a good girl from a legacy family.
“So I expected there might be something there,” she continued, “but I never imagined it would go as far as it did.” It’s also not something Konefal takes lightly. “Supercouple status is not easily achieved, so to be deemed that is really an honor,” she says.
The fact that she and co-star Robert Scott Wilson (Ben) became so popular despite his character’s complicated past makes it all the more stunning. “Headwriter Ron Carlivati and the producers had faith in us from the beginning, so we just sort of ran with it and hoped for the best. And against all odds, the best ended up happening.”
Laughing, Konefal says that unlike Ciara, the whole reformed-serial-killer thing would probably be a deal-breaker for her. “Ben’s target murder victims were women, and given everything that Ciara has gone through, and with her being such a feminist, you wouldn’t think that she would go for a man like that. As much as I love them as a couple, realistically, I would have given it a second thought before marrying the guy!”
