Christie Mary Clark (born December 13, 1973, in Los Angeles, California)[1] is an American actress, best known for her role as Carrie Brady in Days of Our Lives.

Personal life[edit]

Clark exited Days of Our Lives in 1999 to attend university studies in London, England. While in Europe she met Englishman Thomas Barnes in Ibiza, Spain, and on August 31, 2002 they married. They later returned to the United States. She graduated from El Dorado High School in Placentia, California in 1992.[citation needed]

Clark gave birth to her first daughter, Hannah Bella, on March 4, 2008.[2] On September 5, 2010, Clark gave birth to her second daughter, Emma Rose.[3] On August 6, 2013, Clark give birth to her third daughter, Charlotte Joy.[4]


Clark succeeded Andrea Barber in 1986 and Tracy Middendorf in 1992. For her portrayal of Carrie Brady, Clark has been nominated for four Young Artist Awards and two Outstanding Younger Actress Daytime Emmy Awards.

Clark has also appeared in several feature films, including A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) and Children of the Corn II: The Final Sacrifice (1993). Clark returned to Days shortly following the show's 40th anniversary and was with the show for less than a year before the show was restructured, seeing the departure of several cast members from late 2006 to early 2007. Many of the cast members' departures were the result of budget cuts and the employment of Hogan Sheffer to replace James E. Reilly as head writer in July of that year. Clark exited in August 2006 and last aired on October 26, 2006. In June 2010, Clark temporarily reprised her role as Carrie on DAYS.

In November 2010, it was announced that Clark would return for an unknown amount of time to Days of Our Lives which turned out to be just a one episode deal as Carrie talked on the phone with her sister Sami in February 2011. She will be returning to Days of our Lives on September 26, 2011 on a contract.

Outside of acting, Christie is designer and co-owner of two successful San Francisco restaurants, Mamacita and The Tipsy Pig.
