Days of our Lives
After 13 years as Gabi Hernandez on Days of our Lives, Camila Banus has wrapped up her run on the soap. The actress, who filmed her last scenes in April, made her final onscreen appearance on Thursday, November 9, when Gabi was sent to prison to await sentencing regarding Li’s (Remington Hoffman) murder.

Steve Mize has been cast as Dr. Pierce. The physician will share scenes with Tina Huang’s Melinda on Wednesday, November 15.
Jane Elliot’s latest stint as General Hospital’s Tracy Quartermaine has ended — for now. Her character left town on Wednesday, November 8 to head back to Amsterdam to help Bobbie settle Luke’s (Tony Geary) affairs. Elliot returned to the soap last April.
