Resume video upon close of pop-up(s)

Hello Heroes!

I have created a screen that has a video (auto-play at beginning of timeline), along with seven clickable icons beneath the video. Clicking any icon pauses the video as a pop-up window, triggered from that icon, appears. 

I would like the video to resume playing when the learner "Xs out" of each pop-up. I thought I could just create a trigger to play the video again when the X is clicked, but the Xs (along with the pop-up windows) are on separate layers from the video, so I can't access the video via triggers on that layer.

Does anyone in this amazing community have any advice for me? :-) I have a feeling that it's as obvious as the nose on my face... but I'm just not finding it!

Thanks in advance!

Carol
