In the new Hallmark movie 3 Bed, 2 Bath, 1 Ghost, the lively spirit of a 1920s flapper refuses to leave her home until she helps the woman who is selling it find love.
Madeleine Arthur stars as Ruby, who has haunted her former home for decades, only to befriend Anna (played by Julie Gonzalo), who is trying to close her first deal as a Realtor.
But playing matchmaker turns tricky when Ruby decides that Anna is destined to be with Elliot (Chris McNally), the ex Anna left at the altar.
“Will old feelings resurface when Anna @julie_gonzalo teams up with her ex-fiancé Elliot @chrismcnally to restore a haunted mansion?” reads an Instagram post promoting the movie.
In addition to featuring a fun plot twist, 3 Beds, 2 Bath, 1 Ghost also stars real-life couple Julie Gonzalo and Chris McNally.
The pair met while filming the 2018 Hallmark movie, The Sweetest Heart. In June 2022, they welcome a baby girl.
“…I’ve got a wonderful dad job because for When Calls the Heart we film four and a half months, the hours are not crazy, we don’t really have a lot of night shoots so I can be really present with her,” he said. “And then I get the rest of the year, which is like, it’s just such a blessing. So, since wrapping in mid-November I’ve just been on dad mode and it’s fantastic.”
Julie Gonzalo was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and moved with her family to Miami when she was eight years old.
Her first big role was the 2002 romantic comedy I’m with Lucy. She had roles in the TV shows Veronica Mars, CSI: Miami, Dallas, and Castle.
She has appeared in the Hallmark movies Falling For Vermont (2017), The Sweetest Heart (2018), Flip That Romance (2019), Jingle Bell Bride (2020), and Cut, Color, Murder (2022).
Chris McNally plays Lucas Bouchard on the hit Hallmark series When Calls the Heart. He has appeared in the TV shows Riverdale, Firefly Lane, Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, Killer Instinct, Tower Prep, Supernatural, Falling Skies, and Lucifer.
He has starred in the Hallmark movies Hearts of Christmas (2016), The Gourmet Detective (2017), Rocky Mountain Christmas (2017), The Sweetest Heart (2018), A Winter Princess (2019), Sailing Into Summer (2019), Snowkissed (2021), A Tail of Love (2022), Christmas Class Reunion (2022), and Fourth Down and Love (2023).
Madeleine Arthur has appeared on the TV series The X Files, Supernatural, The Family, and The Magicians.
In 2014, she played the daughter of Amy Adams in the award-winning Tim Burton movie Big Eyes. In a 2019 interview, Arthur said she wasn’t always interested in acting.
“Growing up I was more focused on academics, as well as extracurriculars such as gymnastics and violin,” she said. “For the longest time I thought I wanted to somehow work at the UN. Then at the age of 12 I read a book on theatre and had an epiphany. I knew at that moment I wanted to be an actor and began realizing my dreams by taking as many acting classes as I could.”
3 Bed, 2 Bath, 1 Ghost will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, October 7 at 8/7c.
