Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that the NBC soap has a wild ride in store. DOOL recently revealed two major shockers. As predicted exclusively by CDL, Abigail’s (Marci Miller) alternate personality is her own version of Gabi (Camila Banus) and she’s the one who killed Andre (Thaao Penghlis). Naturally, these twists will set up plenty of juicy drama in the months ahead.
In a recent issue of Soap Opera Digest, Marci Miller dished on playing two roles and offered hints about what’s to come. First, Miller talked about entering tricky territory. It’s hard enough to play a character that’s entirely different, but Miller had the added difficulty of impersonating a character already on canvas. She took an interesting approach to playing “Gabby.”
“I couldn’t really try to literally copy Camila because she’s Camila and I’m me,” Miller said. She indicated that she just wanted to take some of Gabi’s characteristics and incorporate them into this personality. This isn’t about recreating Gabi. It’s about creating Abigail’s interpretation of her.
Of course, Days fans might be wondering about Banus’ reaction to this news. How did she feel about the “Gabby” storyline? Miller exclaimed, “Oh, she was so cool!” Banus urged Miller to just do her own thing and have fun with it. “She’s super supportive,” said Miller. “She’s a total team player.”
Now that Miller’s had a chance to step into Gabi’s shoes, she’s faced some real challenges. Miller admitted that she had to venture outside her comfort zone for “Gabigail.” “I just tried to get myself comfortable with being really out there and not second-guessing anything,” Miller said. She suggested that “Gabby” is a lot more sensual and has a completely different physicality.
As for what’s ahead, Days of Our Lives spoilers say we’ll see a battle between good and evil. Miller confessed that her alternate personality is a bit of both. “Gabby” is about to go on quite a journey and Stefan (Tyler Christopher) will play a key role in that.
Miller described “Gabby” as “villainous and sneaky,” but noted that we’d see a big shift down the road. Days of Our Lives spoilers state that Stefan will do his best to help “Gabby” in the coming weeks. “There’s some humanity that takes place,” Miller promised.
