It’s been a busy on-screen week for
Days of our Lives iconic Deidre Hall! First, she officiated as Marlena the same-sex wedding of Sonny and Will on the NBC soap opera, a first for the series and daytime television. And now tonight. she appears in the new Hallmark Channel movie, Lucky in Love which premieres tonight at 9PMEST/8PMCST!
Lucky in Love tells the tale of Mira Simon (Jessica Szohr), who feels like life must be a prank when all of her dreams start coming true on April Fool’s Day. An April Fool, however, she is not.
After three of her own tricks materialize, Mira finds herself promoted to the perfect job, dating the perfect man, and living in the perfect home. Her huge promotion even allows her to work directly with her professional hero, CEO Erin Billings (Deidre Hall) and her friend, Jonah (Benjamin Hollingsworth), on a massive social media website relaunch. But things don’t go so smoothly!
On-Air On-Soaps spoke to Deidre about her role of Erin Billings: “I play a CEO of a facebook-type media company, and it’s typical Hallmark formula about interesting people doing interesting things. There is a conflict and a love story. It has high standards and great values and then it resolves. So you never go into thinking, “Wait, did somebody in die in this?” That is why it’s so delicious; you know how it all turns out. You can just relax and take the ride.”
As to if Erin is a good gal as Marlena is, Hall offered up this comparison: “It was an adventure for me, although she is very Marlena-esque. She is way “stylish” … bigger time stylish than Marlena. (Laughs) She is a bit more flamboyant, but she has that same pulsing heart. She has these little kettles under her wing and it will go right in her arena, and everybody will come out unscathed. There is a moment where my character is helping my young employees develop an invention and seeing it through. and the young girl (Jessica Szohr) falls apart in the middle of it, and then resigns, and Erin gives her a talking in order to help her.”
