The genuinely heartwarming love story of Norman and Rita culminates a week before their wedding when the POstables investigate a package for a young woman that holds the key to her missing mother in “Signed, Sealed, Delivered: To the Altar,” premiering Sunday, July 15 (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
Eric Mabius (“Ugly Betty”), Kristin Booth (“Orphan Black”), Crystal Lowe (“Smallville”) and Geoff Gustafson (“Primeval: New World”) return as The POstables. The movie also stars Gregory Harrison and Barry Bostwick, and features special appearances by Carol Burnett and Keb’ Mo’, marking both their returns to the “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” franchise.
We had the opportunity to catch up with star Kristin Booth to discuss her role, what type of character she’d like to portray next and her favorite scene from “Signed, Sealed, Delivered: To the Altar”
Kat: Is there a type of character you’d like to portray that you haven’t had the chance to yet?
KB: Yes….many!!! I have yet to play a detective or police officer. I would also love to play a psychiatrist or therapist. I have a really long list, lol.
Kat: What was your favorite scene to shoot and why? (without giving away spoilers)
KB: There is a scene between Shane and Rita near the end of the movie and it was such a joy to shoot. Because Crystal Lowe and I are so close it’s always such a treat to work on emotional scenes together.
Kat: Do you have any role models that have particularly inspired you, either in your craft or personally?
KB: My grandmother, Lois Finlay. She will always be one of my heroes. An amazing woman who always saw the best in people….you could confide in her without judgement. She suffered from clinical depression but was still such a bright light to be around. I miss her every day and my husband and I named my daughter after her.
Kat: Do you do anything unique to get into character, such as make playlists for them or focus on a specific trait?
KB: I’ve made playlists before but the one thing I do for every new character I play is choose a new perfume/scent. Shane has worn a combination of Joe Malone’s Blackberry & Bay with Rose since the pilot.
Kat: What’s your favorite part of a wedding?
KB: The dancing!
