"Excited to share Holiday for Heroes will premiere Friday, November 8th!" she shared on Twitter. "Had SUCH a blast shooting this with such wonderful people, can't wait for everyone to see it."

In Holiday for Heroes, Egan plays a woman who becomes pen pals with a soldier (Marc Blucas) and writes back and forth with him for a year until they finally meet in person.
"I'm so excited. This is my first Hallmark project, and I had a blast," Egan revealed on a recent episode of Home & Family, where she reunited with her first TV husband and co-host of the talk show, Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery). "[The film] is a beautiful love story, but my [character's] brother and Marc Lucas, who plays my love interest... are both in the military. They're abroad serving our country, and it just deals with a lot of the issues of how they give up so much to fight for us and serve our country. They miss holidays like Christmas, and it's heartbreaking for them and for their families. So, they really address a lot of that in the movie, which I thought was special, on top of the really beautiful, sweet love story. I'm really excited for everybody to see it. It's really touching."
