Daytime Emmy Award Nominee
Days of Our Lives (NBC)
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Victoria Konefal knew she wanted to be an actress at the age of seven. Her journey into the entertainment industry began in the fourth grade when she went on a class trip to see an off-Broadway production of The Hobbit. During the show, she was so captivated that her mother had to keep her from standing up to join the performance. After the curtain closed, they sought out the director who invited her to audition for a production of The South Pacific. She quickly booked the role and went on to perform with the theater company for six years. In an effort to hone her craft, Konefal attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia Performing Arts High School in New York City where prestigious actors such as Ansel Elgort, Timothee Chalamet, Jennifer Aniston, Adrien Brody, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Al Pacino, Sarah Paulson, Adrian Grenier and Liza Minnelli also studied. Shortly after graduation, she made the decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue acting full-time.
Konefal’s big break came when she was cast asCiara Brady, the daughter of power couple Bo and Hope, on the Emmy-winning soap opera Days of Our Lives. A fierce young woman who has overcome issues with the law and her parents tumultuous relationship, Ciara is making her mark on Salem as she matures. Konefal’s portrayal of Ciara earned her a 2019 Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category. Other television credits include dramatic performances in the Lifetime movies The Wrong Crush alongside Vivica A. Fox and Lesli Kay as well as Deadly Exchange with fellow soap actress Lindsay Hartley. She was also seen with a guest role on the hit ABC comedy Modern Family. In addition to her work on the small screen, Konefal brought her talent to the world of film in Circus Kane, opposite Jonathan Lipnicki. She will further showcase her acting chops in the upcoming horror thriller Fog City.
When she is not busy acting, Konefal enjoys working out, traveling, camping, hiking, biking, and writing music. She loves to be outdoors enjoying nature and a good game of basketball or softball. A passionate environmental advocate, she lends her support to organizations dedicated to conserving our planet. Konefal currently resides in Los Angeles with her beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Lola.
