She is one of the finest young actress in soaps …  and in Hollywood! Now Days of our Lives Camila Banus (Gabi) has landed a primo role in an upcoming drama series pilot for FX!

According to Deadline, Banus has joined the cast of the drama entitled Snowfall!  The pilot is also set to star Tim Matheson, and former ATWT star Billy Magnussen, and it will be directed by John Singleton.

Set in the early 1980s at the beginning of a crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles, Snowfall focuses on three main characters: ambitious dealer Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), ex-Mexican wrestler and now gangster Gustavo Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and prodigal son Logan Miller (Billy Magnussen).  Matheson will play Logan’s father George Miller, a wealthy oil titan. A mover and shaker in political circles, he is enraged and disgusted by his son’s antics.

Camila will play the role of Lucia Villanueva, whose father is a very successful drug dealer who almost certainly has given his daughter too much over the years.  Born in Mexico but raised in the U.S., her entitlement masks a deeply scarred soul; she now wants to take control of her life through whatever means necessary.

I hope that she will be able to remain on Days or the show should get another person to play her part, now.

Will is the next victim so Gabi gets custody of Ariana and leaves
town to start a new life and to get away from Eddie…this explains why she is off the show to do the series but will return sometimes to visit Rafe!

In this interview a few weeks ago she said she was going to be on for at least a year so it sounds like she is under a contract. She could be doing both shows like the guy playing Paul has been doing with Days and Hawaii 5-0.

I saw the same interview. I guess she will juggle both shows.

Christopher Sean did another periscope last night & made reference to stuff he is currently filming for DOOL and episodes he will be soon filming for H50.

Yeah I really hope she is able to stay on Days for a while. Like a lot of people I didn’t like her when she first came on but she and Gabi were so much better during the whole Nick Fallon story.

If Will is indeed dead, where does this leave Sonny. Will he walk away from Ariana. For months it was our daughter now she is what to him. If he fought Gabi for custody, would the Courts really award Ari to an unemployed convicted murderess versus her financially stable but gay stepfather. I wish Days would go there but it wont. Happy for the actress in her new role.

It’s a pilot, it will only air if the series is picked up. Fingers crossed.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
