The last time Hallmark Channel favorite Natalie Hall graced the network, she portrayed an incognito princess in the heartwarming A Winter Princess. Fast-forward 12 months and the engaging actress is returning to the Hallmark this weekend in You’re Bacon Me Crazy as part of the network’s Spring Fling programming event. The movie finds Hall (pictured at top) in a very different role (and environment) as Cleo Morelli, the proprietor of a successful Portland-based food truck, whose hopes of winning $100K in a competition are squelched when competing food truck operator Gabe (Michael Rady) also enters the contest. After filming at a sprawling ski resort in A Winter Princess, Hall was excited to accept the challenges that come working within the confines of a food truck. “I went from a princess to a food truck owner," she laughed during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. "Two very different roles, and very different characters. Cleo is a girl with a small business, and that's something we wanted to bring attention to. Small businesses are very important -- especially now with what's happening. It's such a hard time for [them]. Hopefully, this movie will provide a little bit of entertainment and relief and ignite some excitement for restaurants when life gets back to normal.
