Brett Dalton is about to experience a miracle in Hallmark’s all new holiday film, Once Upon a Christmas Miracle.

Starring alongside, Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights, Star-Crossed), the pair will play real life couple, Heather Krueger and Christopher Dempsey. The couple’s love story went viral when Dempsey, a former Marine, donated his liver to Krueger, who had been diagnosed with stage 4 liver disease in 2014.

The two of them were strangers at the time of the transplant but Dempsey’s good deed led to a whirlwind romance that eventually led to the couple tying the knot in 2016.

Hallmark has already released the official synopsis for the film:

“Told she would have less than a few months to live without a liver transplant, Heather Krueger’s time was running out when a kind stranger, Chris Dempsey, heard of her plight and discovered he was a perfect match. The two met and before long a friendship developed into romance. The movie follows Heather and Chris’ journey over three Christmases as his selfless gesture leads to a Christmas miracle for everyone involved. Based on a true story.”

Once Upon a Christmas Miracle is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, December 9th at 9pm/8c. Check your local listings.

by Cat MacRae


The Understudy,” is a backstage comedy by Theresa Rebeck and Brett Dalton will be headlining as Jake in the upcoming season at the Wesport Country Playhouse. Set in a broadway theater, the play centers around the understudy who has been called in to cover Jake, a C-list movie star trying to gain some stage cred.

The play itself focuses on the American obsession with celebrity and the way that it has corrupted  the theater industry. Jake is the quintessential movie star, with a toned physique and air of smug satisfaction at his blossoming career. His latest movie is a hit, and he’s playing Kafka on Broadway alongside an even bigger movie star. In the titular role of the understudy, Harry becomes increasingly angry at Jake’s wooden performance.

Lost In Florence – Review

By Lizzie Hanna


Lost in Florence is an open love letter to its namesake, the Italian city of Florence, filtered through the lens of a visiting American football player. Written and directed by Evan Oppenheimer, the romantic drama mixes love, sport and Italian culture to the beautiful backdrop of a timeless city.

Eric Lombard (Brett Dalton) is visiting his cousin Anna (Stana Katic) and her Florentine husband, Gianni (Marco Bonini), when he decides to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Colleen (Emily Atack). Unfortunately for him, she rejects his proposal and flees back to the US, but not before telling him that it’s time to give up on his football dreams and face reality. Devastated, Eric decides to stay in Florence a while longer.

After days of watching him sulk, Gianni decides to bring Eric to a game of “calcio storico”, a sport that seems to meld American football, rugby, and soccer all into one brutal match. Despite the dangers of the historic game, Eric proves himself to the captain, Paolo (Alessandro Preziosi), and joins the team. It isn’t long before Eric meets Paolo’s attractive girlfriend, Stefania (Alessandra Mastronardi),  and things start to unravel as the two pursue a secret relationship.

Dalton gives a strong performance as the would-be football star, and expertly plays the indecisive vulnerability of his character. Also memorable is Dalton’s comedic timing, which gets the chance to shine through in one particular scene as Eric pretends to be a local to two inquiring tourists.  Alongside him is co-star Mastronardi, who is engaging in her role as Eric’s Italian love interest. Perhaps the most surprising onscreen relationship, however, is that between the two cousins. Katic brings a genuine charm to her character, and the honest and playful affection between her character and Dalton’s is a pleasure to watch.

Whilst Lost in Florence is somewhat predictable, its moments of humour and doses of Florentine culture makes for an enjoyable film. At every turn, the audience is treated to Florence’s astounding architecture and wealth of art, which is proudly woven into the film’s core themes. One can’t help but envy Eric’s brief interlude with the picturesque countryside amongst the vineyards, moped excursions and gelato. In the end, it would come as no surprise if you end up googling flights to Italy once stepping out of the film.

Lost in Florence is out on VOD platforms now.
