Days Of Our Lives Spoilers — Camila Banus Explains Why She Decided To Come Back To Salem
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the beautiful brunette put it this way, “When I was decided on leaving in 2019, it was a couple of different factors. One of the main factors was that I was involved in not only my story, but other storylines, as well, just weaved around, and it was a lot of work. I’m talking about I was coming in pretty much five days a week, four days a week, and it was a lot of hours, a lot of scripts, a lot of words. I was just like, ‘I need a mental reset.
My body needs a reset.’ And I also wanted to creatively do something from the formula I had been doing for so long. The break that I had taken before that has been for a couple of years, so for me, it was just kind of a natural, my body was asking for a break, mentally, creatively, and physically.”
While it might look like Camila has been on the canvas this entire time, she added that she wrapped up her last stint on the show back in November. She also said that when the cast and crew came back from their holiday break, she did not come back for filming. But because of the global pandemic that has been Covid-19 and how production has been shut down several months to help keep everyone healthy and safe from the virus, this has been the longest break Camila has ever taken. For the actress, who is used to working long hours, it was a bit of an adjustment to have to stay at home for such a long time in the beginning.
