Mark Hapka is the actor in the clip above. He played Nathan Horton, Melissa's son, from 2009 until 2011. He was fired from the show when, according to what he claims, he asked that the show give him and his colleagues some work to do, instead of giving storylines to only 5 people and making everybody else supporting players in the background. This was the time when Dena Highley was still writing the show and airtime was extremely unevenly distributed. The only ones who had a storyline were Alison Sweeney, James Scott, Galen Gering, Shawn Christian and Molly Burnett; they were featured all that time, whereas some other people were at times absent for an entire month. This fact was discussed a lot on this board, but Hapka was the first one to openly acknowledge that people working for the show were aware of this fact, as well. He also said that he'd never met Dena Highley during his time on the show, which tarnished her already bad reputation even further and confirmed a lot of things that had been suspected about her.
However, while was mad at the TPTB at Days, he also indirectly encouraged fans to start a campaign to bring him back. Then, a couple of weeks later, Soaps.com claimed to have been infromed by Hapka on FB that he was returning to the show. The same site later shut down the rumor with a very confusing explanation: the message came form Hapka's account, but he claimed it wasn't him who had sent it. Until this day, we still don't know who the real liar in that story is, but some believe the message really did come from Hapka himself.
