Candace Cameron Bure,
It seemed a little out of character. Shannon Elizabeth, having played in several sultry roles and in a few other movies where clothes came off,was cited as the lead star in a Hallmark movie, a network that thrives on cutesy and family oriented entertainment. The movie is rated G. Why would the casting director be interested in Shannon Elizabeth? While this question is never really answered, her having been cast in the lead provided at least two opportunities for cross-referencing Elizabeth's other appearances, particularly in her brief appearance in Love Actually. Shortly past the middle of the movie, Elizabeth's assistant, Carmine, tries to advise her about how to express her feelings to the male lead character Chris Marshall. He asks her if she had ever seen the movie "Love Actually," likely a deliberate reference to a movie she has not only seen, but had played in. But what has to be deliberate is that the character name of the love of her life, Chris Marshall, is phonetically identical to the name of the actor who played Elizabeth's boyfriend in Love Actually, Kris Marshall.
