Rhiannon Fish and James O’Halloran find romance in the new Hallmark movie When Love Springs. The movie, which will premiere as part of the network’s Spring Into Love lineup, tells the story of a fake romance that turns real.
In the movie, Fish plays Rory, a junior PR executive who recently had her heart broken. When she joins her parents and sister on a trip to a quaint bed and breakfast, she runs into her ex. In a panic, she pulls the hotel’s future owner, Noah (played by O’Halloran), into an embrace and pretends he is her boyfriend.
Though Noah is surprised, he soon opens up to Rory about his own problems. His father is considering selling the hotel and Noah has invited a travel blogger to review the place in a last-ditch effort to save it. Rory offers her advice as a PR specialist to help him save the place.
New Hallmark movie
When Love Springs was shot on location in Brisbane, Australia.
In a recent interview with Digital Journal, O’Halloran talked about how much he enjoyed working with Fish.
“Rhiannon is an absolute sweetheart, and she is a veteran in the romantic comedies genre,” he said.
He says he hopes fans enjoy the story.
“I hope people have a laugh with this movie, and I hope they enjoy a beautiful, classic love story, which is simple and earnest. I hope it puts a smile on their face, that would be ideal for me,” he said.
