One woman’s nightmare could very well be a blessing in disguise.

Fans of Days of Our Lives star Camila Banus (Gabi) will get to see her in a new, chilling role in the upcoming LMN premiere of Fatal Fiancé on Thursday, June 10, at 10 pm.

Banus will appear as Faith, the delusional ex-girlfriend of Leah’s (Brittany Underwood, (One Life to Live, Langston) fiancé Mark (Greg Perrow). After Faith kidnaps Leah on her wedding day, the soon-to-be bride manages to escape but in doing so she wonders if Faith was really delusional at all or simply trying to save her life.

Of the movie, Banus shared a “fun fact” with us, “The name was originally A Deadly Bridenapping, which was pretty atrocious! We were laughing about it, and eventually it was changed to A Bride’s Nightmare.”

As you can see, it was changed again after that. “We had a lot of fun filming, and luckily it was done during my break from the show,” she went on to say. “Plus, I got to work with Brittany Underwood, who was Langston on One Life to Live and Wally Kurth [General Hospital, Ned; Days of Our Lives, Justin], so it’s a lot of fun for soap fans.”

Watch the promo for a glimpse at the soap opera actors as Leah’s emotional rollercoaster begins.
