NBC daytime soap opera actress hits primetime.
Days of our Lives’ Camila Banus will be busy in primetime this fall. Soaps.com has learned that the actress has landed a role on the FOX musical series Star. Regarding her part, Deadline is reporting that Banus will play Nina Ferrera, the wife of media mogul Mateo Ferrera, played by William Levy (Girls Trip). Though Levy has been cast as a series regular for the upcoming season three, there’s no word how often we’ll see Banus in the FOX role but she will continue to be seen on Days.
She shared the exciting news on Instagram and stated, “Well the news is out! So excited to a part of STAR ON FOX season 3!! Can’t wait for everyone to meet NINA FERRERA and who better to be my other half but @willevy watch out everyone the FERRERA’S are here to stay!!”
Star first debuted in December 2016 and was created Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy. Set in Atlanta, Georgia, the American musical series centers on three young singers who work their way through the musical industry on the road to success. Some of the cast includes Queen Latifah, Benjamin Bratt, Stephen Dorff, Jude Demorest, Amiyah Scott, Ryan Destiny, Brittany O’Grady, Quincy Brown, Luke James, Miss Lawrence, and Michael Michele. Be sure to tune in for the season three premiere on Wednesday September 26 at 9:00 PM on FOX and keep an eye out for Banus as Nina throughout the new season.
In July, Banus starred in Killer Caregiver on Lifetime. Currently, her daytime character, Gabi Hernandez, is embroiled in the center of a storyline surrounding Chad DiMera, his wife Abigail and his brother Stefan – and the fact that Gabi is walking around Salem with a huge secret… that the baby Abigail is carrying is Chad’s, not Stefan’s, as it appeared on the DNA results.
