Alison Sweeney
Alison Sweeney was born Sept. 19, 1976 in Pasadena, California. Sweeney made her television debut in a national commercial for Kodak when she was 4 years old. Her first gig was on "Days of Our Lives" (NBC) during the late 1980s, not as Sami Brady, her famous character on the show, but as a young Adrienne Johnson in a flashback. In just a few years, the actress would make a triumphant return to the soap that would put her name on the map.

While remaining a staple of the Salem-based soap, Sweeney built her acting resume, appearing on TV series such as "American Dreams" (NBC) and "Las Vegas" (NBC), both in 2004. She spoofed herself as the fictional daytime star "Jessica Ashley" on a 2001 episode of "Friends" (NBC). Through the years, Sweeney's portrayal of Salem's resident bad girl won her numerous fan awards, including four Soap Opera Digest Awards (1996, 1998, 1999 and 2001) and a 2002 Daytime Emmy for "America's Favorite Villain." In 2007, Sweeney became the host of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" and is still hosting it today.
