Days of Our Lives actress Camila Banus has been cast in the lead role of a character named Lucia Villanueva in the upcoming pilot of Snowfall. According to Deadline, the pilot will focus on three main characters a dealer, ex wrestler and a gangster in the early 1980’s way before the epidemic in LA. The show will be directed by John Singleton. Banus will be playing one of the drug dealer’s daughter from Mexico, who will be living in the United States, and how she takes control of her life. Sounds like a serious role, doesn’t it? It’s the kind of a role that the Emmy nominee actress has never played before.
The 25 year old actress currently stars as Gabi Hernandez on “Days of Our Lives”. She just returned from a hiatus, and will soon leave the show. Her character on the show, was sentenced to prison after killing another character on the show, Nick Fallon. Her sentence was then reduced and she was finally released from prison and has since reunited with her family. If the upcoming pilot gets picked into series then we will be seeing the actress on TV every week in a completely different role which will be kinda cool, right? But if, the show doesn’t get picked, then hopefully the writers of the soap opera will probably write her character back, and we will continue to see her on Days. She had previously starred in a show called “One Life To Live” as Lola Montez from 2008-2009, and after that she landed the lead role of Gabi Hernandez on the show she still stars. She first debuted in 2010.
Seeing Gabi return from the prison was one of the best episode EVER.
