Judi Evans

Judi Evans (born July 12, 1964), also credited by Judi Evans Luciano in the 1990s, is an American actress born in Montebello, California.

Evans' first role of note was that of Beth Raines on Guiding Light (1983-1986).

Her next role was Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives (1987-1991). Like Beth, Adrienne was part of a blue-collar family and became involved with a rich young playboy, Justin Kiriakis (played by Wally Kurth).

In 2003, Ken Corday lured her back to Days of Our Lives, allowing her to create the role of down-on-her-luck schemer Bonnie Lockhart, a complete reversal from the good-girl role she once played on the show.

She played the role until March 1, 2007, the same day her on-screen daughter, Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath), also made her last appearance.

There had been much speculation that Evans would return to Days in the role of Adrienne that she played in the late 1980s. Evans returned to work as Adrienne on March 30, 2007 and her first airdate was May 1, 2007.

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.

Kate

Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
