Get ready to meet hunky, leading men!

We are not interested in Marvel. Instead, Hallmark’s cinematic universe has been steadily building over several years. This culminated in three significant crossover appearances in 2021’s Countdown To Christmas movies. They should be called hot cocoa bombs, not Easter eggs.

First, Tyler HynesIn brief, it was in Christmas Tree for My Family as a waiter who serves Andrew WalkerThe network’s viewers were delighted to hear that Walker was able to do so. Walker then returned the favor by appearing as Hynes’ bar patron character. An Unexpected Christmas.

And then? Paul CampbellThe actor, who wrote An Unexpected ChristmasStarred inSanta StakeoutIn his regular co-stars, he made an appearance as a firefighter Kimberley Sustad‘s Christmas with the Nine Kittens

The MCU shakes! Okay, not really, but it has been an unexpected delight to see the Hallmark talent have some fun and appear in each other’s movies, which is why we had to get the scoop on how the crossover cameos came to be. Spoiler alert: It is because the stars really are friends and even related in some instances. (ICYMI) Walker is the cousin of Hynes. Cassandra Troy.)
