NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera) Wants More Latina Representation In Soaps
She said, “I’m going to be talking about that. I’m going to be kinda exposing things like that, I’m going to be talking about how come they’ve been— me especially, a very Latina woman, I consider myself extremely Latina, I speak Spanish half of the day. I don’t feel like anyone has ever noticed I’ve represented Latinos on NBC for almost a decade or nobody even cares. Especially when we talk about, or Latino groups talk about ‘Hey, we need more diversity.’ People at least recognize the people that are doing these things.”
Of course, DOOL fans certainly agree with Camila. Many commented on her interview with, “I want more diversity…more Latinos, Asians, African Americans, gays, and disabled characters. Bringing Theo back would kill two birds with one stone, such an important legacy character!”
Another fan wrote, “I have long loved Camila, I’m happy she’s back, and I would love to see the Hernandez family fleshed out and featured prominently. She is a beautiful and talented young actress that DAYS is lucky to have. Now if they could only keep Eric, Hope, Will, Ciara, Lucas, Valerie, Shawn, Belle and Philip and bring back Theo and Celeste. I don’t ask for much right?”
