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!

I think Kim Zimmer looks her age. NATURAL. We are so used to seeing ageless faces on TV, that we forget that the majority of actors/actresses go under the knife to make themselves look younger. The results are sometimes great and other times monstrous. When I reach 60, I’d rather age gracefully and look my age than look like Jackie Zeman. Donna Mills looks great for 73…. Thanks to plastic surgery?…she has a youthful face on an old body. I will probably be penalized for this. Why hide it? I’m speaking the truth and what most think but not dare… Read more »

Looks like a cute and corky fun sports movie to watch.I will look for it when it comes out..I wish some of the remaining soap will give Kim “The Legend” an offer, she is SO needed back in daytime, only if she wishes..Crystal Hunt is such a under rated and talented actress that I will also love to see back in daytime…Her portrayal of Lizzie was good and of the conniving Stacy was classic “love to hate”!!

The movie actually looks cute. I would go see it. Kim is a very talented actress. Crystal was never given her due. Loved Lizzie no matter who played her. I agree about Kim looking her age. I am 72 , and why put yourself through something like face lifts that will fall and you will look worse. Jackie Z, and Hunter Tylo both were beautiful and now look disgusting. You watch them and can’t look away.. We all get old and men are allowed to age so just be glad you are still alive and enjoy your life.I look at… Read more »

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
