Alison Sweeney is a successful American actress prominent for her role as Samantha “Sami” Brady on the NBC soap opera, Days of Our Lives. That single role has become an enduring contract for the star since 1993 and has won her many accolades.

Lady Sweeney started her career in the 80’s at an early age of 5 starring in a Kodak commercial. That was followed by an appearance in an episode of Tales from the Darkside. The highly talented star did a few more stints before her break came with a role as Samantha Sami Brady in the longest-running soap Days of our Lives, a role she still plays to date.

For her endeavors, she has received various awards including six Soap Opera Digest Award, and Daytime Emmy Award for America’s Favourite Villain-Special Fan due to her role in the famous series Days of Lives.

Amazingly, she has done a great job achieving her current body measurements; for this, Alison Sweeney has been rewarded with a consistent appearance on the covers of magazines in bikinis.
