Hallmark movie Color My World With Love stars actress with Down Syndrome
Crown Media has just finished production on the Hallmark movie Color My World With Love, which features a romance between two people with Down Syndrome.
Actress Lily D. Moore stars as Kendall, a talented artist who creates Impressionist-style paintings. She meets Brad (played by David DeSanctis) in a community center cooking class and the two fall in love.
Kendall’s mother, Emma (played by Erica Durance), is happy for her daughter but also concerned. According to the network synopsis, “Emma has spent the last 22 years trying to protect her daughter and has reservations about Kendall and Brad’s new relationship, especially when it quickly moves in a serious direction.”
Not wanting Kendall to experience heartbreak, Emma tries to slow the relationship down. But she meets a friend of Brad’s family (played by Benjamin Ayres), who helps Emma accept that Kendall is ready to live her own life.

The movie will air later this year on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.
In a statement made through Crown Media, Moore said she was proud to be part of the network’s push for diversity and inclusion.
“Everyone has a dream to fall in love and get married one day, even people with disabilities,” said Lily D. Moore. “I hope viewers take away that ‘Color my World with Love’ is about painting your own story through your emotions and that we all have endless possibilities.”
