IMTA Alum Freddie Smith is the Director of the upcoming horror film Hiker! The official trailer has been released and it looks super scary! Freddie is the Director, one of the writers, and plays Ryan Howland in the film. According to soapshows.com, "What makes Hiker especially unique is the use of the GoPro camera, which tells the story from the character’s points of view. The camera gets attached to helmets and other items and offers a different kind of viewing perspective that heightens the horror in an already-horror-filled story."
Freddie was awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in April, 2015 for his portrayal of Sonny Kiriakis in Days of Our Lives. His character was part of daytime TV's first gay wedding with two men.
