Though she’s very focused on her career, Banus has a strong support system thanks to her family and close friends. From her very first TV role to her strange obsession, here are five fast facts about the Days of Our Lives actress.
In The Beginning
Banus was born on July 22 and was raised in Miami Beach, Florida. Her parents are Carmen and Jaime Banus and she is the older sister of Gabriela Banus, who is also an actress. She started acting when she was a teenager.
First TV Role
Prior to getting her first soap role on One Life to Live in 2008, Banus made her first television appearance on the show Dexter back in 2006. Before working in television, Banus appeared in a number of commercials.
Banus has revealed that she’s obsessed with murder shows and the ID network. She is most interested in the shows Twister Sisters and Someone You Thought You Knew, which is about unsuspected people committing crimes.
