The talented and exiting, Mark Hapka, Dr. Nathan Horton from Days of our Lives, spoke to Soap Opera Digest this week to discuss the comments and remarks he made in an online chat after being let-go by the power-that-be in Salem.

Hapka wanted to clarify any misinterpretation of the statements he made. The young star told SOD, “I’m a naturally sarcastic person and some of the stuff I say I don’t mean it as intended or as it sometimes reads. People were saying, ‘Just bow out gracefully.’ I’m like, ‘It’s not even a matter of that. I don’t really have anything ill to say.’ There’s nothing wrong with being honest and I think ihat on the other end, they deserve to know what’s going on and why. This was my first long-term role on a television show and the experience has been amazing. I would do it again, even if I knew ihat it was ending this way. Financially, I’ve been able to take care of my family for a bit and just get ionreally work. Being able to memorize is one key thing ihat I’ve gotten from this experience, because we memorized so much each day that I’ll be able to memorize a film in like three days! I’ve made some really close relationships and they’re gonna stay, so like I said, everything has been amazing. I don’t regret any bit of it.”

    Mark has every right in the world to speak his mind. However, when he went to the producers/writers about story, etc., he should have known there could be consequences. I’ll miss Hapka’s Nathan and I wish him well. I do hope Nathan returns to Salem, as the town needs as many Hortons as possible.
