ll My Children’s Natalie Hall has made plans for the holidays.
The actress, who has played Colby Chandler on the long-running ABC soap opera, has booked the lead in the Hallmark miniseries Love’s Christmas Journey.
In the two-hour, two-part miniseries, slated to air in November, Hall will play Ellie King, a young pioneer woman who has suffered the loss of her husband and daughter.
In the mini, part of the Love Comes Softly series based on the books by Janette Oke, Ellie (Hall) will visit her brother Aaron (General Hospital’s Greg Vaughan), a sheriff in the small town of Haddonton, and his two children during the Christmas holiday. When a corrupt attorney in town leaves an innocent young man to blame for Mayor William Wayne’s (Sean Astin) barn catching fire and burning, Ellie steps in to help.
