Whether it’s When Calls the Heart’s Erin Krakow or Sweet Autumn lead Nikki DeLoach, the network is full of talented women telling heart-warming stories. Hallmark’s long list of mystery movie franchises are also led by fierce women, including Lacey Chabert in The Crossword Mysteries and Holly Robinson Peete in the Morning Show Mysteries films.
With every Hallmark movie comes a whirlwind shooting schedule, which Chabert has learned to embrace. “We did this one very quickly. We had a couple of six-day weeks, and then we did a shorter week,” she exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2021 of her 2021 holiday feature, Christmas at Castle Hart. “It’s a lot to pack into 15 days and it amazes me. It’s a true collaboration when everyone comes together and brings their talents to make that happen. I’m always in awe.”
