Though Judi Evans was born in Montebello, CA and grew up in Monterey Park, it would be accurate to add that the actress grew up professionally on daytime. Evans made her television debut on the CBS drama “Guiding Light” in 1983 as the troubled Beth Raines. Her performance won her the 1984 Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Supporting Actress. In 1986 Evans joined NBC's “Days of our Lives,” where she portrayed the popular Adrienne Kiriakis opposite Wally Kurth's (ex-Ned, “General Hospital”) Justin. From 1991 to 1999 Evans played Paulina Carlino on “Another World,” a character that she described as "sweet and devilish." The role won her the “Soap Opera Digest” Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1998. Evans was nominated for two additional “Soap Opera Digest” awards — Hottest Female Star in 1993 and Favorite Daytime Supercouple on a Daytime Serial — shared with Vincent Irizarry (ex-Lujack, “Guiding Light”) in 1986. After the cancellation of “Another World,” Evans took time off to focus on her family and moved back to California following her husband, an L.A.-based cameraman for CNBC. She returned briefly to acting in 2000 when she played Patsy Ramsey in the made-for-TV movie “Getting Away with Murder: The JonBenet Ramsey Mystery.” To the delight of her fans she came back to daytime in 2003 to play Mimi's trashy mother Bonnie Lockhart on ”Days of our Lives.” Bonnie left Salem in early 2007, but Adrienne soon returned to town. In 2008 she was again nominated for an Emmy, but this time for the dual roles of Adrienne Kiriakis and Bonnie Lockhart. This was a first for daytime since the characters were not on the air at the same time. She appeared briefly on “As the World Turns” in 2009, before returning once again to “Days of our Lives” as Adrienne Kiriakis. At the 2010 Daytime Emmys in Las Vegas, Evans was voted by TV Guide as the “Best Dressed All Around” for the 4-day celebration of the Daytime Emmys with its Pre-Emmy parties and after-parties.
