TONIGHT: Kelly Kruger and Ryan Paevey In Hallmark Channel’s ‘From Friend to Fiancé’

Courtesy/Ha;llmarkChannel

When Ted gets engaged to the high school mean girl and asks Jess, his childhood best friend, to plan their wedding, things get complicated. Her true feelings for Ted keep getting in the way … and that’s the set-up for tonight’s premiere of From Friend to Fiancé  which stars Jocelyn Hudon along with daytime drama favorites: Kelly Kruger (Mackenzie, Y&R) and Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan, General Hospital).

From Friend to Fiancé bows tonight on the Hallmark Channel beginning at 9PM ET and 8PM CT.  In the story, Paevey plays the man at the epicenter of all the attention, Ted, while Kruger takes on the role of Kimberly Kentwood.

This movie is part of Hallmark’s ‘Countdown to Summer’ promotion of stories that always centers around love and romance and how people come together, or break apart, and them come back together again.

The cable network sent this tweet out in anticipation of tonight’s premiere: “The wait is almost over! What will Jess do when she finds out her best friend Ted is marrying her sworn high school rival Kimberly ?”

Meanwhile, Kelly Kruger announced that she will be live-tweeting with fans at 9PM during the debut of the movie.

Ryan and ALL his co-stars have chemistry. This should be another hit for Hallmark. Just hope there can be more Darcy movies!!

I am recording ^^^ his movie just to see how he’s checking OUT. AT THIS POINT – in time – he’s so missed. because what is happening to Maxie.. alone… ??? and WITH Peter August… is a travesty. WAKE UP writers

pair her w/Peter – they are DEAD already

this is a STRIKE – I want Nathan more than we need Maxie and Peter

Patrick

“Ryan” is still holding his audience… PLUS by this time.
who isn’t just as physically able ?!?!?!
he’s doing it

THEE PACING of ??? prime time ; movies ; hallmark are serving “him”

NO MORE ARE we faced with the timing of the last shot before camera fades… which can be eon… HOLD HOLD HOLD – argh ! cut my head off CUT

so… that’s a lot

HEY ! even Max Gail shared with Michael Fairman in interview how it’s a “challenge” to keep that shot in continual motion

I was so relaxed… by his physical attribute .. yeah, charge
did not want to see Maxie any where near… she’s stuck with Peter… oh god couldn’t you just blech on him @the Nurses Ball congratulating Mummsie on her engagement

dag! he’s a stunner

Just saw your post, and sorry we don’t agree on this one.I don’t miss Ryan Paevey one bit, because of the hunky Chase, who makes up for him 100%. His twinkley, sparkling eyes alone,”dag! he’s a stunner” Was that statement for our Peter? Sorry, just yanking your leg a little here.

Patrick Just cant help myself sometimes. I’m always afraid my humour will offend someone, but Celia says she has a crazy funny bone too, so I kind of feel I have her for backup. P.S glad you didn’t choke on your coffee!

All these Hallmark are the same stories with different titles.

yes. I like Ryan but the movie was cheesy with childish dialogue. Boring!

For some reason, i don’t miss him on Gh. I think he has been perfectly replaced by Chase (sorry, I’m blanking on the actor’s name).

Sorry to say, I’ve not missed Ryan Paevey one bit. Josh Swickard/Chase has taken over quite well. I don’t miss Dante either. Maybe it’s true, out of sight, out of mind.

Ryan is always charming, and Kelly was also–BUT they needed MUCH stronger writing. There were a lot of empty “fillers” in the movie. To bad–much potential in both actors, if they were only given stronger material. Why can’t they get stronger writers on the movies on Hallmark? A lot of the movies lack “teeth” and substance–but a lot of the other actors featured also have potential.

Nancy,
I think they just need to replace their old cookie cutter. Maybe the old one is wearing out. Ha!

Hey Violet! I think you are right! 🙂

Oops! It’s not Kruger that Ryan had the chemistry with. It’s the other actress that played his best friend–Joclyn Hudonx–that he had the chemistry with. She a cutie–and was very good–AND has much potential, like Ryan, given a better script.

Now, if I can only get her name right: everyone actress deserves as much.
It’s “Jocelyn Hudon”–my apologies to her.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
