In case you didn’t already know, Days of Our Lives star Camila Banus appears on the primetime show Star… and now she’s letting us in on a little secret!
The gorgeous actress joined the Fox series, Star, for its third season as Nina Ferrera, the head of acquisitions for Gravity Media, who happens to wear some very high heels.
Banus took to her Instagram account to explain how she’s able to wear them and handle those long days shooting.
“Check out @staronfox tonight for some very exciting stuff!!! Fun fact, wearing 5-6inch heels for all of my scenes on Star soo a girl needs a stool for in between takes for those 15 hour days ! #ninaferrera #staronfox #falltv #instamood #instagood #mood #lookinglikeadetective #boots #set #hourglassmakeup #hourglassonmyface #ig”
Luckily for Banus, her day job playing Gabi Hernandez on DAYS doesn’t present the same issue. A soap’s shooting schedule of sometimes 80 or more pages a day goes much faster than primetime, which only shoots around 6-8 pages a day.
That’s not to say that portraying Gabi is a walk in the park… especially since the role has presented some danger for the actress lately.
After all, she was beaten to a pulp in prison, conked herself over the head with a sterling silver serving tray, and was almost strangled to death by Abigail (then-Marci Miller). She certainly knows how to suffer for her art.
