Most soap watchers are walking on beaches rather than in winter wonderlands at the moment, but that isn't stopping Hallmark from spreading a little pre-holiday cheer. The popular movie network has announced that All My Children alum Lacey Chabert (ex-Bianca Montgomery) is back for another Christmas film.
Chabert is scheduled to headline Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe, which is based on Melissa de la Cruz's book of the same name.
"In a Yuletide-themed, gender-swapping update of the classic Jane Austen novel, Chabert plays Darcy Fitzwilliam, a smart and successful woman who has a glamorous dating life but has not fallen in love," reports EW. "She is also short on Christmas cheer. When her mother becomes sick, though, she returns home, setting in motion a turn of events that could lead to a very happy New Year."
Chabert has starred in quite a few Hallmark holiday movies over the years. She played a pastry chef who enters a gingerbread competition in 2017's The Sweetest Christmas, a web designer who shows the holiday spirit to her boss in 2016's A Wish for Christmas, and a widowed mother who battles with Mariah Carey in 2015's A Christmas Melody.
Chabert's relationship with Hallmark doesn't stop with Santa, however. As Soap Central reported earlier this year, the actress has signed on to the upcoming Hallmark Movies & Mysteries film franchise Crossword Mysteries. The Mississippi native will portray a crossword puzzle editor whose life is turned upside down when she's pulled into a police investigation after several of the clues in her recent puzzles are linked to unsolved crimes.
Chabert played Erica Kane's Pine Valley daughter from 1992 to 1993 and later went on to gain fame in series like Party of Five and The Spectacular Spider-Man and films like Mean Girls and Not Another Teen Movie. She gave birth to a daughter in 2016, which you can read more about here.
