Work has become a family affair for Carlos and Alexa PenaVega. Since 2017, the husband and wife have become fixtures on both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, racking up five films together. Their latest, Picture Perfect Mysteries: Dead Over Diamonds, is a follow-up to last year’s hit Picture Perfect Mysteries: Newly and Dead, and with more in the works, another franchise for Hallmark Movies and Mysteries is born. “We got a sequel,” beamed an exuberant Alexa when MediaVillage congratulated the couple during an exclusive interview. “This is our family, and it all started because my manager John (Carrabino) suggested a meeting with Hallmark and didn’t want me going alone and suggested I bring Carlos along. He basically said, ‘Work together.’ All we want to do is keep the family together, which is super hard in this industry, especially having to leave for months at a time to film in Canada or Europe. Having two kids, seven months and three-years-old, it made the most sense for us. So, we went in, gave some ideas and they let us go for the ride. It’s been so great!”
