It’s a very exciting time for former Days of our Lives star Mark Hapka (Ex-Nathan), who is the leading character and star of the new film 23 Blast which is heading to theatres shortly! But Hapka is not alone! In the motion picture with him are: daytime icon, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, GL and Ex-Echo, OLTL) who plays Hapka’s mother, and Queens of Drama cast member Crystal Hunt (Ex-Stacy, OLTL, Lizzie, GL)!
The inspiring theme in the movie is one young man’s triumph over tragedy. 23 Blast is based on a true story of Travis Freeman (Hapka). Freeman is a football player, a sport he loves, who goes blind while in high school. A s the story progresses, Travis must decide whether to attempt to play again, even without his sight!
The film by Dylan Baker has its world premiere earlier this week on October 20th at Regal Cinemas E-Walk Theatre, New York City, where many of the cast was in attendance including former OLTL director Gary Donatelli (pictured here with Mark Hapka and Kim Zimmer) who is in the film, and none other than GH’s Kristen Alderson and OLTL’s Kelly Missal, who stopped by for the premiere to wish their soap star pals well!
