When Calls the Heart Actors Among Familiar Faces Set to Star in New Hallmark Christmas Movies
Hallmark Channel's Christmas movie machine is already chugging away, and, by the looks of it, this holiday season is already shaping up to be another winner for the television network.
The latest Hallmark news to get us in the Christmas spirit comes courtesy of Entertainment Tonight. According to the website, two When Calls the Heart actors are set to star in their own Christmas movies this year: Erin Krakow, who plays Elizabeth Thatcher Thornton, and Kevin McGarry, who joined the series as Mountie Nathan Grant in season six.
ET reports that Krakow will appear alongside Luke Macfarlane in Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen, a film based on the novel by Melissa de la Cruz about the Grinch-like CEO of a toy company. It will be Krakow's ninth holiday movie for Hallmark.
Meanwhile, McGarry will lead Hallmark Channel's Christmas Scavenger Hunt, which tells the tale of Belinda (Kim Shaw), who is forced to team up with her ex (McGarry) for her hometown's annual Christmas scavenger hunt.
And in more star-studded news, fans of Lost will be happy to learn that series alum Elizabeth Mitchell will be making her Hallmark Channel debut this year, starring opposite former ET correspondent Cameron Mathison in The Christmas Club.
