Hallmark is beginning to tease its list of Winterfest 2020 films, and fans of soap opera alum Victor Webster (ex-Nicholas Alamain, Days of our Lives; ex-Roger, Sunset Beach) will be happy to see that his name is included for the film Hearts of Winter, which also had the working title of A Tidy Romance.
The film follows the actor as a widowed father named Grant, whose daughter submits him into a contest where the prize is a home renovation by a local interior designer named Bethany (Jill Wagner). Grant wins, but he isn't comfortable with a stranger in his home. However, he soon discovers that the true prize is actually right under his nose.
This is the second Hallmark movie that pairs Wagner and Webster. The actors previously starred together in the 2017 Fall Harvest film A Harvest Wedding.
Webster got his start on Sunset Beach playing Roger from 1998 to 1999 before he went on to play the role of DAYS' Nicholas in 1999. His other credits include Mutant X, Charmed, Lincoln Heights, Melrose Place, Castle, and Workin' Moms.
Hearts of Winter is set to premiere on Hallmark on Saturday, January 18, at 9:00PM. However, the network is bringing fans a special sneak preview of the film and all of the other Winterfest 2020 movies on the docket via a special called 2020 Winterfest Preview Special, being hosted by Lacey Chabert (ex-Bianca Montgomery, All My Children) and Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West, General Hospital). Catch the special on Hallmark on Saturday, December 28, at 10PM/9PM C.
