B&B soap actor’s newest project.
Soaps.com has learned that The Bold and the Beautiful actor, Aaron D. Spears (Justin Barber), is both starring in, and executive producing, a new film entitled, London Mitchell’s Christmas. A very busy actor, Spears was put on contract at B&B in October of last year, a move that came after Spears exited Days of our Lives as Commissioner Raines in September.
The actor took to social media to share some photos from the London Mitchell’s Christmas film set, and although Spears hasn’t shared many details, the movie’s director, Christopher Nolan, has also posted from behind the scenes and stated the following, “This movie will touch your heart and soul. It will bring so many emotions out! It is powerful! The performances from my actors are award winning. I'm so grateful to do what I truly love! Sneak preview of this film will be in September 2018 in select cities. Let us know which city you are at and we will try to come.”
Spears will play the title role of London Mitchell in the film, which co-stars Taja V. Simpson, who played B&B’s Adele from 2012 - 2013. Other cast include Lisa Wu (Professor Mack), Timon Kyle Durrett (Jim Edwards, Y&R, Queen Sugar), LaToya Ward (Tyler Perry’s If Loving You is Wrong), Lisa Yaro (Underdogs), Jeff Jones (Deadwood), as well as Adi ‘Bambi’ Benson, Thea Camaro, Tyler Abron, Justin Lee Sweat and Azza Brummer.
London Mitchell’s Christmas is being shot in Chicago, Illinois, the third most populated city in the United States, and one of the most important centers for business in the world. Located on the southern end of Lake Michigan, Chicago is known for its Millennium Park, Magnificent Mile, Sears Tower, and the Lincoln Park Zoo.
