Friday, January 17 marked the final tape date for “'” (Gabi Hernandez), who joined the soap in October 2010. The actress announced plans to depart the soap in an August 2013 interview with Soap Opera Uncensored.

“Tomorrow is my last day shooting as my beloved character Gabi! Thought this photo was dramatic enough. Everyone wish me luck on my last day of taping as Gabi on Days of our Lives,'” wrote the actress the day before she filmed her final scenes in a message published on her Instagram page.

During her last day of shooting, co-star (Kate Roberts) tweeted an image of Banus hugging (Abigail Deveraux) saying, “Our beautiful girls @camilabanus@KateMansi share a hug & some very emotional scenes today! #days.” , who plays onscreen brother Rafe Hernandez, responded to Koslow’s tweet and said, “Sad day sis. Sad day. Wuv u!”

Based on “DAYS'” current filming schedule, Banus will likely air through at least mid-to-late May.

    gosh, i always had my issues with the character of gabi, but i definitely loved camila banus’ acting. and i actually liked her together with nick (blake berris – who i also would like to see continue on the show)! and i’m wondering what her departure will mean for arianna (and will and sonny)? i think days should be careful not to drive away too many actors that have grown on us over the last years!!

    Why is she going she is great on the show as i did not really like nick well did not like the way they were going with Gabi & him, i dont want to see the show fall off by letting great people go .

    I wish Camilla all the best in her career but i respect that it sounds like it was her decision to leave.Plus because of the story Gabi is currently i’m sure Camilla’s exit will be memorable and play a big part of May Sweeps.Plus Gabi would be leaving one year from when she gave birth to Arianna Grace.
