An outgoing and energetic child, Camila Banus signed with a talent manager at age 6. The Miami Beach, Florida native would never look back as her career was off and running.
Soon, she was appearing in commercials and print ads and, before long, landing roles on Spanish soap operas.
While in high school, Banus decided to send an audition tape to New York soap, One Life to Live.

When the gig ended, Banus moved to Los Angeles and promptly landed guest spots in Disney’s I’m in the Band and Zeke and Luther. In 2010, she was hired for the contract role of Gabi Hernandez on Days of our Lives.
