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.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
