Camila Banus certainly knows how to bring on the feistiness as Days of our Lives' Gabi Hernandez, but she's about to show fans what she's got in the crazy department, as well. The actress is starring as a delusional ex-girlfriend in the Lifetime Movie Network film Fatal Fiancé, which comes with a super soapy twist.
Premiering Thursday, June 10, at 10PM, the thriller follows engaged pair Mark (Greg Perrow) and Leah (Brittany Underwood, ex-Langston Wilde, OLTL) as they are tormented by Mark's psycho ex, Faith (Banus). After Faith kidnaps Leah on her wedding day, the soon-to-be bride manages to escape -- but in doing so, she wonders if Faith was really delusional at all or simply trying to save her life.
"The name was originally A Deadly Bridenapping, which was pretty atrocious! We were laughing about it, and eventually it was changed to A Bride's Nightmare," Banus reveals to She Knows of the film's ever-changing name that yet again changed to Fatal Fiancé. "We had a lot of fun filming, and luckily it was done during my break from [DAYS]."
In addition to Underwood, the LMN film also stars Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis, DAYS; Ned Quartermaine, General Hospital), which makes the project an all-around must-see for daytime fans.
Enthuses Banus, "I got to work with Brittany Underwood, who was Langston on One Life to Live, and Wally Kurth, so it's a lot of fun for soap fans."
