EXCLUSIVE: The L.A. Complex Vixen Krista Allen Looks Back on Time as Days of Our Lives’ Billie Reed


I recently caught up with hella sexy Krista Allen to dish her stint on The CW's summer sudser The L.A. Complex, for our sister site Pop Confidential. Head on over to PC to find out about her role as Jennifer Bell—an A-list actress with an agenda—on the Canadian import. Before you do, here's a snippet of the chat, where I asked Allen about her time as Billie Reed 2.0 on NBC's Days of Our Lives!

PC:  You aren't exactly a stranger to acting out soapy scenarios on television, having played the role of heroin addict-turned-cosmetics-queen-turned-operative Billie Reed on NBC's Days of Our Lives from 1996-99.  What's the biggest difference between doing a daytime soap and a nighttime one?

KA: Daytime is very hectic. We would shoot an episode, sometimes more, a day. There were multiple cameras, and we plowed through the scenes. Nighttime is single camera with lots of set ups for each shot, close-ups, master, over the shoulder, and it's much more methodical and technical.

PC: Do you still keep in touch with any of your old DAYS cast mates?

KA: I still speak with Billie's big brother, Austin, who was played by Austin Peck. I did a pilot TV show for Comedy Central with Jack (Mark Valley), that didn't get picked up, and an episode of CSI with him too. And I see a lot of familiar, happy faces from the show randomly.

Days of Our Lives’ Grad Krista Allen Joins The CW’s LA Complex!


One Billie Reed from Days of Our Lives, Lisa Rinna, may have staged a PR stunt to try and get on The CW's Melrose Place reboot a few years back, but another has actually been cast in one. Well, sorta! Deadline is reporting Krista Allen (Billie 2.0) has booked a recurring gig on The CW's upcoming Melrose-esque soap The LA Complex.

Allen will reportedly play A-list movie star Jennifer Blake on the Canadian import. The LA Complex is about a group of sexy, twentysomethings trying to make it in Hollyweird, who all live and love in the same apartment complex. Watch a promo for the series after the jump!
