Ciara Alice Brady is a fictional character from the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. She was portrayed by child actress Lauren Boles from 2008-2015. Vivian Jovanni from 2015-17, and is currently portrayed by Victoria Konefal.

Ciara is the daughter of supercouple Bo and Hope Brady and the younger and only sister of Shawn Douglas Brady and the late Zack Brady.


Vivian Jovanni assumed the role of Ciara from child actress Lauren Boles on October 30, 2015, when the character was aged. Jovanni announced on December 21, 2016 that she would be leaving the show. Her last appearance was on May 26, 2017.

Actress Victoria Konefal was then cast as Ciara and made her debut in December. Her first airdate was on December 1, 2017. The actress has taken over the role previously played by Vivian Jovanni and says she is extremely grateful to have landed the once-in-a-lifetime job. "I am beyond happy to be joining the Days of our Lives family," the actress told Soap Opera Digest. "Looking forward to sharing this incredible experience with you all!"


While grieving over the death of their young son, Zack, Hope and Bo Brady found comfort in one another, and Ciara is conceived, although it takes several months for Hope to learn she is pregnant. When she eventually learns that she is pregnant, a classic "Who's the daddy?" story line begins. Hope had been to Morgan Island with Patrick Lockhart where, in a moment of weakness, she had found comfort in his arms.

Tests were run and it was "determined" that Hope's unborn child was Patrick's. Unbeknownst to Hope and Bo, Patrick had paid the doctor to fix the test. Despite believing Patrick to be the father of her unborn child, Bo and Hope get back together, pushing Patrick to the point he decides he needs to kidnap Hope.

Ciara was originally born on December 29, 2006 but her birthday was changed to July 16, 2004 then March 18, 1998. Ciara was born in a warehouse, delivered by Bo. Patrick reveals her true paternity before being arrested.

Ciara's name was selected by fans in an online poll. Out of the five original choices, narrowed down to three, Ciara Alice Brady was the winner. 

Tragically, when father Bo Brady returned after three years of being away in 2015, he soon died of terminal cancer. In 2016, she finally graduated from high school with her niece Claire Brady, her cousin Joey Johnson, and her friends Theo Carver and Jade Michaels.

Currently, she lives with Claire and Tripp Dalton. She is in a committed relationship with Tripp.
