NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers reveal that actress Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera) recently opened up about her decision to return to soap, even though she initially wanted to leave a few months earlier in order to pursue other projects in the entertainment industry. Here’s what she has to say.
“Throughout Covid, I kept a positive mind, thinking that I would be still open and available to other projects,” she explains in a new interview with Soap Opera Digest. “I wanted to be part of other creative outlets, it didn’t matter if it was a film or a music video, just something creative and different. So I was definitely open to things and thinking that even though we were closing down, there would still be opportunities for me to self-tape. When that didn’t happen, when things really, really closed down, in my mind, I’m thinking, ‘Well, no, I have to still act. This is a part of me, this is part of my body, part of my soul.’ It was nice to get a self-tape here and there and exercise the tools that I love to play with all the time, but it wasn’t the same thing, so that’s when the itch started to come back. I thought, ‘I don’t know how long I can go without acting or without being in front of a camera.”

Camila added, “DAYS is my home, it’s where I need to be,’ and that kind of evolved into, ‘If we come back, I would love to be part of whatever I can be a part of.’ I didn’t know anything about what was going to hap- pen, and then within the last couple of months there was some back and forth between my management company and me and DAYS, and that happened sort of organically from both sides. I need them. They’re my family, they’re my home.”
As of press time, Camila hasn’t returned to the set of the hit daytime television show just yet, which means that it might be several months before fans get to see her on the canvas again. ‘Days of Our Lives’ airs weekdays on the NBC network. Check your local listings for times.
