Currently on Days of Our Lives, Gabi is biding her time behind bars at Statesville prison. Meanwhile, Stefan is being forced to embrace a life of crime by Clyde, just to keep her safe in prison. Fans already know that Gabi’s portrayer Camila Banus has exited the soap for good. Thus, a prison stint on charges of offing Li Shin became the perfect way to take her character off the canvas.
However, going by the fact that Stefan is still determined to save Gabi from prison and bring his beloved back home. It is safe to say that Days of Our Lives is not writing off her character. Which only means one thing, with Camila gone, someone else will fill Gabi’s shoes. Interestingly, there have been many rumors about a possible recast. A possible casting call for a character that sounded a lot like Gabi had also recently gone viral on the internet.
