Hall­mark’s fre­quent hires:

Why some stars ap­pear there so of­ten

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

Q: Why do the same ac­tors ap­pear in all the Hall­mark movies? Dif­fer­ent hair­styles, but al­ways the same peo­ple. – Bet­tianne Jones, East Pales­tine, Ohio

A: Well, it’s not lit­er­ally “all” of them. How­ever, you can at­tribute your thought to the “fam­ily” feel the net­work has built it­self on, which it has done in part by build­ing a fam­ily of ac­tors (par­tic­u­larly fe­male ones) who work there time and again – Lori Lough­lin, Lacey Chabert, Kel­lie Mar­tin, Can­dace Cameron Bure, Jill Wag­ner, Al­i­son Sweeney, Mag­gie Law­son, Tay­lor Cole, Sarah Lan­caster ... and that’s just to name a rel­a­tive few.

Q: We re­ally en­joyed watch­ing “Switched at Birth.” What years did it air? Will there be a se­quel? What hap­pened to the “fam­ily”? – Ben­nie Martinez, via


A: The ABC Fam­ily/Freeform drama had a five-sea­son run (which might have seemed longer, but it skipped pre­sent­ing new episodes in 2016 and it also split a cou­ple of sea­sons into halves) that be­gan in the sum­mer of 2011. There’s been no se­ri­ous talk of a re­vival or spinoff, though such “Switched” stars as Vanessa Marano and Katie Le­Clerc have made it clear in in­ter­views that they’d be up for re­turn­ing.
