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.
