She was loved, she was loathed, but Sami Brady was never ignored.
And Thursday, her final day in the fictional town of Salem, was no exception. As Sami left for Hollywood, Alison Sweeney, who played the character for 21 years, posted an emotional farewell to her fans on Facebook.
"We've been through a lot together, haven't we?" she wrote. "It was quite literally a dream come true for me … I'm proud of who I've become as a result of my 21 years in Salem."

No one can question Alison Sweeney's work ethic.
For the past two decades, the actress, who plays fan favorite Sami Brady on NBC's Days of Our Lives, was up at 5 a.m., often clocking 12-hour days five days a week on the show's Burbank set.
And that was just her day job.

Crying on cue isn't hard for a soap opera star. But for Alison Sweeney, who celebrated her last day on set of Days of Our Lives last week, not crying was the issue.
After nearly 22 years playing fan favorite Sami Brady, Sweeney officially retired from the show last week, but not before one last scene.
"All of a sudden I'm walking out on stage and there's this huge crowd of people," Sweeney, 37, tells PEOPLE of the surprise send-off members of the cast and crew put together for her. "I realized they were gathering for me. It was so amazing and so touching and special."
And it was emotional. After seeing some cast members she'd worked with back when she started the show as a teenager, "It was hard to keep it together," says Sweeney. "My kids [Benjamin, 9, and Megan, 5] were there, so I feel like that helped me avoid the ugly cry. But I totally had tears streaming down my face."
