Excited doesn't even begin to describe the feeling actor Akono Dixon (pictured above) had when learning he would be joining the Hallmark Media family and starring in Spring Breakthrough, the latest film under their Mahogany banner. "I'm so majorly ecstatic and super-excited," he exclaimed during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. "I mean, it's Hallmark! The network has done phenomenally. My mother, father and the whole family watch it. Just to be a part of Mahogany, which is based on the iconic 30-year-old brand and shows stories from the Black experience and lens … to be a face of that for young boys, girls and adults who look like me really is a phenomenal opportunity!
