If you, like me, watch a lot of Hallmark movies, you've no doubt noticed that they reuse actors and actresses. You've probably also noticed that many of them hail from past TV series. I started watching Chuck after my Hallmark obsession began, so I recognized Ellie and Shaw from some of my favorite movies. For fellow Hallmark/Chuck fans, here's where you can catch your favorite sister and a reformed evil nemesis in Christmastime action.
SARAH LANCASTER - ELLIE
It's the classic HMU trope of big business vs. small business, revolving around a Christmas tree farm that sells trees in Manhattan.
'Tis the Season for Love
Girl with big city dreams spends Christmas back in her hometown after a year of bad luck. While in town, she finds a sense of purpose and a new love.
Christmas on Holly Lane
This movie premieres this year! Here's the IMDB synopsis: "Three childhood friends, Sarah, Rily, and Cat, with fond memories of Christmas at Sarah's house, come together as adults to save Sarah's home in the hopes of having many more beautiful Christmases together."
BRANDON ROUTH - SHAW
The Nine Lives of Christmas
He wasn't the nicest guy in Chuck, but he's pretty great as a firefighter in this movie that features a feline meet-cute that leads to a human romance. This is one of my faves.
