Camila exists after 13 years
After 13 years of service, Camila Banus has formally left Days of Our Lives.
The Emmy-nominated actress, who portrayed Gabi Hernandez on the Peacock soap opera, exclusively spoke with TheWrap about her departure, stating that she took the “changes” in the show as a cue to move on.
“Days, which ran on NBC from 1965 to 2022, has experienced major changes in the last few years, including a move to Peacock,” said 32-year-old Banus of the venerable daytime program.
To be really honest, I was willing to renegotiate a specific shooting schedule that would allow me to take a little bit more time off. However, they decided against it,” Banus revealed.
Additionally, there were other factors at play that they chose not to pursue. Initially, it was simple to move on to a new contract and say, “Well, if you cannot meet these demands, then I can’t.”
Banus added, but after that, you know, I spoke with producers, and they called me and said, ‘Well, what can we do?’ And I genuinely state that I have to slow down. You know, part of it is that you guys are taking this shooting schedule for me, even though you won’t. That is all I can do, you know, except bow out politely and thank you.”
The TV personality from Miami Beach, who has been married for two years to Marlon Aquino, hopes to start a family soon, so her departure from Days may also mean changes in her personal life.
“Hopefully, my spouse and I are trying to start a family,” she stated. And that is another important reason for me to consider perhaps just taking a little break and seeing where this time takes me.
However, I am also prepared for great things and open to other opportunities. I am just ready for something different.”
“I want to say a deep thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has loved Gabi the way that I have,” she said, wrapping up the interview.
