Linda Dano Talks Hallmark's The Chronicle Mysteries, Another World Reboot
Beloved soap star Linda Dano is teaming up with Alison Sweeney for her new Hallmark project The Chronicle Mysteries!
DivaGalsDaily editor-in-chief Delaina Dixon chatted with Dano, who starred in One Life to Live and Another World, about how she landed the role in the new Hallmark film.
"She [Alison Sweeney] called me up and said 'Listen, I'm producing, and I'm also the lead in these three movies, and I have a part for you in the third one.' And I went, 'Woah, Hallmark! Okay! I'll do it. God bless you, Alison Sweeney!'"
Dano plays the matriarch of a winery in the new film, and teased Delaina with a description of her character:
"She's [Alison Sweeney] trying to uncover who killed someone. So they come and they interview me," Dano says about her role in the film.
Would the soap veteran reprise her role as Felicia Gallant in an Another World reboot?
"I don't know that I would do it. But it'd kinda be hard for me not to do it if they brought back Felicia. That kind of feels like I'd have to go, right?"
When asked if now is a good time for soaps, Dano replies, "I think it's always been time for soaps."
"I think that's the absolute charm of Hallmark. It's kind of like the soap world ... You feel like you know these characters, you feel like they're part of you — and I think that's very important."
