The character was introduced to Vill a void while Lauralee Bell (who plays Christine) was on maternity leave. Braña, who had a mental illness, also had an affair with Paul and attempted to kill Christine.

Additional details: Before the character was reformed, Kevin Fisher was initially one of the nastiest characters in the series. He was first introduced as an internet predator who chased Lily Winters. They ended up having sex and the statutory rape resulted in Lily’s chlamydia. Lily’s best friend Colleen Carlton hated Kevin and he tried to kill her by shutting up a restaurant refrigerator and setting the building on fire. All of this contrasts sharply with the personality and actions of the fan-favorite character now.

Additional Details: A few years after Shelia returned, it was revealed that she had a sister, Sarah Smythe. This new sister, wanting to avenge Shelia’s “death”, underwent plastic surgery to look like Lauren and began to torment her. It was similar to the time when Shelia Carter underwent plastic surgery to look like Phyliss Summers to torment her too.
