Hallmark Channel movies often stick to a formula — and when it comes to similar character jobs, fans have noticed.
“More than once, I’ve been a pastry chef or a chef,” Lacey Chabert exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2021. “So people always ask me like, ‘Do you like to cook?’ I actually, genuinely, love to cook [since] I’m from the south. It’s a tradition that I love that is often in the movies.”
Chabert — who has played a baker in The Sweetest Christmas and the All My Heart franchise, to name a few — also has a passion for planning parties. “Whenever I get to play that in the movie, like, I do in [Christmas at Castle Hart], I really enjoy it,” she added.
Chabert’s role as a baker/chef is the most common job in Hallmark movies alongside journalists/writers/newscasters. Those professions are followed by musician/actor/artist and cop/detective.
