12-year-old Christie Clark hit the big screen for the first time with a supporting part in director Jack Sholder’s horror A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985), starring Mark Patton and Kim Myers. The same year, she also landed a guest starring role in an episode of the television series “Hardcastle and McCormick.”

The vigorous teenager got her big break in the following year when she replaced Andrea Barber as a naive Carrie Brady in the soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” While working on the show from 1986 to 1990, she received four Young Artist nominations in the categories of Best Young Actress in a Daytime Drama (1989 and 1990), Best Young Actress Starring in a Television Drama Series (1988) and Exceptional Performance by a Young Actor in a Daytime Series (1987). Meanwhile, she was also seen in the TV film Ask Max (1986), as Shelly Meyers, and in a 1990 episode of “Hull High,” as Shannon.

After departing the daytime soap, Clark took on the role of Valerie Adams in Danielle Steel’s Changes (1991), a television movie helmed by Charles Jarrott and starring Cheryl Ladd as an attractive and fruitful TV news anchor who falls for a famed heart transplant surgeon (played by Michael Nouri), was featured as Cindy in the daytime drama “General Hospital” (1992) as well as had a guest spot in the prime-time series “Life Goes On” (1992).

Later that same year in 1992, Clark made her return to “Days of Our Lives,” this time replacing Tracy Middendorf to play the adolescent Carrie. As a business-sense adult, the actress won a 1997 Soap Opera Digest for Hottest Romance, an award she shared with Austin Peck, as well as received two Daytime Emmy nods for Outstanding Younger Actress in 1997 and in 1998. A year after her comeback, Clark had her next wide screen exposure in director David Price’s Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice, based on a short story by Stephen King, before reprising her Carrie Brady role for two television films Night Sins (1993) and Winter Heat (1994).

Clark left the long-running soap in 1999 to enroll at a university in London and do some touring. She was back to the US two years later, got married in 2002, and did not revisit the small screen until November 2005 when she reprised her role of Carrie Brady in “Days of Our Lives.” She remained with the show until late August of 2006. Along with Austin Peck, Clark is set to last air in November this year.
