Lisa Welchel previews Hallmark’s HEARTS OF SPRING

As Hallmark’s Hearts of Spring gets set to premiere, I had the pleasure to speak exclusively with one of its stars, Lisa Welchel (The Facts of Life). Tell me a bit about your character, Carly Ashby. She writes a parenting blog, she’s single, her daughter is a senior in high school getting ready to go off to college, and she’s kind of finding love the second time around. What do you admire most about her? I would say I admire

Jason Dohring previews Hallmark Channel’s PORTRAIT OF LOVE

Jason Dohring is all set to star in his first Hallmark Channel movie, and he’s pretty excited about it. Dohring plays Luke Dwyer in “Portrait of Love,” a project about a successful fashion photographer (Bree Williamson, “Gossip Girl”) who returns to her small town and rediscovers the unconditional love of family and the rekindling of a love relationship (with Dohring). A Different Kind of Role Dwyer is a stretch from parts viewers are used to seeing Dohring play (i.e., a

Autumn Reeser previews her third Hallmark Film, I DO, I DO, I DO

Autumn Reeser is no stranger to Hallmark Channel movie fans, having appeared in Love and the Thanksgiving Day Parade, Midnight Masquerade, and now I Do, I Do, I Do. I caught up with Reeser from her makeup trailer in L.A. during a promotional tour of the movie.  She told me this was a project she’d been hoping to do for a couple of years, saying, “This is my second movie with this team – Writer Nancey Silvers, Director Ron Oliver,

Stefanie Powers Spreads the Love through Animals, Asia, and Hallmark’s LOVE BY THE BOOK

In the world of television, Stefanie Powers is an icon. Let’s face it. Perhaps best known for her Hart to Hart days with Robert Wagner, Powers has yet to slow down, continuing instead to shower the world with her talent in entertainment. Her most recent project, Love by the Book, premieres this weekend on the Hallmark Channel. Powers will play opposite John Schneider, Leah Renee, and Kristopher Turner. As I talk with Powers via telephone about her latest project, she

THE MIDDLE Comes to Syndication on the Hallmark Channel

Now in its fifth season on ABC, Emmy-nominated The Middle began its syndication run on the Hallmark Channel on March 3. As a kickoff to this milestone, Charlie McDermott (Axl Heck) and Eden Sher (Sue Heck) participated in a conference call for the media via Hallmark. A Relatable Feel It was a call full of teasing and laughing, mostly between McDermott and Sher, who were obviously enjoying reaping the benefits of such a successful Top-20 series. Syndication, for McDermott, seemed

ENTOURAGE’s Jordan Belfi talks SNOW BRIDE and the theatre

After you’ve feasted on Thanksgiving turkey, counting down the shopping days ‘til Christmas, you might want to surf on over to the Hallmark channel and check out Snow Bride. Snow Bride is one of the Hallmark Channel’s original programs airing on the Countdown to Christmas specials, and one of it stars, Jordan Belfi (Entourage, Moonlight), was kind enough to take time between auditions to chat with me about that show as well as a few other projects. Sweet Story The

Cuba Gooding, Jr discusses FIRELIGHT – a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie airing Sunday on ABC

I spent some time this morning chatting with the incredibly charming Cuba Gooding, Jr, about his upcoming role as Dwayne “DJ” Johnson, a counselor at a youth correctional facility.
