She only left Salem behind a few months ago, but former "Days of our Lives" star Camila Banus (ex-Gabi) will soon be seen in a very different fictional world. She is co-starring with Molly Ringwald ("The Breakfast Club") and Chevy Chase ("Community") in a holiday movie from Lifetime. Set during the 1960s, "Wally Lamb's Wishin' and Hopin'" follows a 10-year-old boy coping with family life, a Christmas pageant, Annette Funicello and a substitute teacher. The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Wally Lamb. Meatloaf ("Fight Club"), Annabella Sciorra ("CSI") and Cheri Oteri ("Saturday Night Live") will also make appearances. Look for Banus in the role of Simone Funicello.
Banus played the troubled Gabi Hernandez from October 2010 until June 2014. Since leaving the soap, she had a bit part in the TV series "Matador" this summer. "Wally Lamb's Wishin' and Hopin'" will premiere on Lifetime on Saturday December 6. Check your local listings for more details on when it will air in your area.
