Vanessa Marcil in The Nanny Express

Vanessa Marcil is keeping busy and unfortunately it's not with a return to General Hospital. Marcil stars in the Hallmark Channel's Original Movie The Nanny Express premiering on Saturday, January 3, 2009. Here's the story behind The Nanny Express:

By the time Kate Hewitt (Vanessa Marcil) walks through the front door of widower David Chandler (Brennan Elliott), he is a desperate man. His two children, nine-year-old Ben (Uriah Shelton) and teenager Emily (Natalie Dreyfuss), have already succeeded in chasing a string of six terrorized nannies out of the very same entryway. But Kate, who is caring for an ailing father (Dean Stockwell) and finishing up a teaching degree, needs this job and she resolves to stand up to whatever tricks and pranks the Chandler kids can dish out—and to help them cope with the death of their mother.
