Camila Banus Talks on Her Decision to Return to DAYS

Photo: JPI

Days of our Lives fans were ecstatic to learn that Camila Banus would be coming back to the NBC daytime drama series to reprise her role of often-times bad girl Gabi Hernandez. Banus had made the decision to leave the soap earlier this year, as viewers will see her exit play out this week on-air.

However, since prior to the Covid-19 pandemic DAYS taped over six months ahead, Banus explained to Soaps.com her decision to leave at that time: “There were a couple of reasons that I came to the conclusion of needing to take a break. For me, any time I leave the show, it’s never felt like it’s a definite thing. It’s always been something like I need some space from this partner.”  Camila also added,“I didn’t know for how long, but I knew that I wanted to have my pilot season open and available for any opportunity that might present itself.”

But as people know, pilot season and all of TV production had been shut down since March due to the pandemic, not giving Banus or most actors the ability to go out for numerous roles they otherwise would have had the opportunity to do.

The talented actress shared on her imminent return to taping new episodes at DAYS: “I’m happy and grateful I have a home at Days of our Lives. I have a home there that is not only the show, but just the amazing people that make it happen.”

DAYS is set to return to production on September 1st, and Camila to be back on-screen later this fall.

So happy to know Camila is back at DAYS? What do you hope happens to Gabi upon her on-screen return? Comment below.

They should send Justin w/his kid to AZ, until they bring them back, which this show will unit always does, and keep Eduardo in Salem with his two kids. Diversity & all around talent doesn’t have to be written specific kind of story to shine.
