    When I profess that I adore young actors, I am completely in earnest. And it seems like the ones that the Hallmark network hires are always the crème de la crème. Whether they appear in background scenes, have a line or two, or are essentially the junior leads, I am consistently impressed with their competence as well as their humility. […]

    During the inaugural season of Chesapeake Shores, I had the supreme honor of interviewing the actress whose character (Leigh) caused a plethora of impassioned discussion amongst the Chessies on social media–Brittany Willacy. Interestingly enough, the tide has shifted in season two, and I believe Chessies are divided on what they currently think of her character. Regardless, I am grateful that Brittany was […]

    Being the Hallmark fan and “Chessie” that I am, I consistently pay careful attention to one of my favorite shows, Chesapeake Shores, and the moment that Simon Atwater was added this season, I found myself somewhat swooning. How on earth could a girl not be charmed by a romance author with an impeccably enticing (and smoothly sexy) British accent? I was […]

    During Garage Sale Mystery Month this August, the first of the four films (The Beach Murder) featured an actress by the name of Chiara Zanni. Although I had seen her name before, until I did the research, I was unaware of the assortment of talents she possesses in both voice work and on-camera work. In fact, between the months of July through […]

    I can’t recall the first time I noticed Mark Brandon in a Hallmark network film, but I know for certain that he was on my radar for quite awhile as over the past couple years, Hallmark has utilized his talents fairly regularly. Recently, a fan suggested that I should interview him, and once he agreed, we scheduled one as soon […]

    As I have stated in the past and continue to maintain, Hallmark does an incredible job of featuring the supporting cast in their various films, and their loyalty transcends that of many other more prominent networks. In the case of Peter Benson, I was familiar with his works long before I was aware of who he was, and Hallmark has […]

    I could not establish why the name Bradley Stryker sounded familiar when I first reached out to him for an interview concerning Chesapeake Shores, but once I realized that he shot a film last year with one of my dear friends, I instantly recalled the reason. Regardless, watching him in Chesapeake Shores as John Rawl has been a joy, and having the […]

    I am unquestionably ecstatic when an agency contacts me to interview one of their enterprising actors, and when those professionals are connected to correspondingly amazing Hallmark projects, that is like virtual icing on the proverbial cake. In the case of Sarah Edmondson, Hallmark audiences are certain to recognize her from a variety of projects, Hallmark and otherwise, and I couldn’t […]

    Positive young people and Hallmark are always a winning combination. I sometimes wonder how Hallmark continues to uncover and feature these hidden gems with amazing talent who have remained unspoiled by the brutality and cynicism that habitually permeate this business. In the case of Hallmark, this trend continued last season during the popular show Good Witch when Alanna Bale was added […]

    During the last season of Chesapeake Shores (which was also its inaugural season), I connected with a couple of crew members behind-the-scenes, and Kirsten Hansen was one of them. It is tremendously gratifying for me to witness her expanded involvement with the show this season, and in spite of her frenetic schedule, she took a few moments to answer some […]
