The ABC Daytime soapers said they ain't letting the Mouse House's decision to rinse themselves of their suds slow their roles. All My Children lovely Natalie Hall has booked the lead in Love's Christmas Journey, a Hallmark Channel miniseries based on the series of Love Comes Softly books by Janette Oke. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress who plays society princess-turned-Vlogger Colby Chandler on AMC, will portray Ellie King, a young, pioneer widow mourning her husband and daughter. Okay, so it's not a comedy.
Fellow sudsies Greg Vaughan (ex-Diego, The Young and the Restless; ex-Lucky, General Hospital) and Dylan Bruce (ex-Chris, As The World Turns, Brian, The Bay) also appear. This is the second big get for Hall of late. No, I'm not talking about her boyfriend, General Hospital beefcake Brandon Barash! The actress will also be playing Hanna's (Ashley Benson) wicked stepsister Kate next season on Pretty Little Liars. Get it then, Ms. Hall!
