If having charm and charisma to spare are prerequisites for a Hallmark leading man, newbie Brant Daugherty might be over qualified. The Pretty Little Liars and Dancing with the Stars alum makes his Hallmark Channel debut this weekend starring opposite network favorite Jen Lilley in Mingle All the Way, the latest movie in the network’s Countdown to Christmas programming event. Daugherty's Hallmark debut is a distinct change from his last notable role as Luke Sawyer in the R-rated feature film 50 Shades Freed, and an opportunity the actor is delighted to have been given. "The movie came in as an offer, which was great, so I guess someone had seen something that I had worked on and liked me enough, and for that I am flattered,” Daugherty explained during an exclusive interview with MediaVillage. “I didn't realize how much of a club it was, but I’m honored and happy to be a part of Hallmark.
