DC Interview: DAYS' Mark Hapka Talks Working With DAYS' Legends and Reveals if He's Team Melanie or Team StephanieBy Jamey Giddens on June 26, 2010
Just got back from the Luxury Gift Suite for the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, where nominees and presenters can partake in some of the pimp swag Sway Presents (a division of Phoenix-based event planning company, Sway Events) has assembled for them. While I was checking out the snazzy, throw pillows on display from LDC Furniture, sponsors of the VIP lounge, where the stars can toss back a Dragon Bleu cocktail or three, I looked over to spy a familiar face singing along to one of the Top 40 hits being spun by Neuro Drink-sponsored DJ Green. It was none other than Days of Our Lives heartthrob Mark Hapka (Nate).
I pulled Hapka away from his pals, including a little-known-actress by the name of Crystal Chappell (Carly, DAYS), to chat for a few seconds about the recent passing of DAYS Grandma Alice Horton (the late Frances Reid), the DAYS legends Gram's onscreen passing brought back to Salem and of course the red-hot Melanie/Nathan/Stephanie triangle. Is Hapka,Team Melanie (Molly Burnett) or Team Stephanie (Shelley Hennig)? Stephanie fans might be needing a swig of that there Dragon Bleu after reading this!
Daytime Confidential: You guys are just finishing up a big storyline in Salem revolving around the death of Grandma Horton, played by the late Frances Reid. What's it been like getting to work with classic Hortons like Marie (Maree Cheatham) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves)?
Mark Hapka: For such an unfortunate event, it was great to have so many Hortons together. It was awesome to see all of those flashbacks of the show. The cool thing about a show like DAYS having been on the air almost 45 years is that when you go back into flashbacks, they're really true flashbacks from back in the day. Meeting all of the show's legends has been amazing. I worked with a new person from the past every day! READ MORE
