As a child, Evans started to appear in TV commercials, and when she had wrapped up with high school started to land acting roles in shows. For Evans, the character of Krystle was a perfect fit. She had decided to retire from acting more than 20 years ago, but making the occasional appearance as herself in reality shows. It only made sense for Evans to retire, as she admitted that she never wanted to be an actress long-term in the first place.
