Hallmark heartthrob Ryan Paevey makes the switch from Hallmark Channel to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Tuesday night with the premiere of Hope at Christmas, part of its Miracles of Christmas programming event. Hope, co-starring Scottie Thompson, marks a few firsts for Paevey (pictured at top), best known to Hallmarkies for his starring role in two of Hallmark Channel's Mr. Darcy movies. It’s his first film for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and the actor told MediaVillage in an exclusive interview it’s a little different from his past projects. “The easiest way to describe the difference is it perhaps speaks to a broader subject matter,” he explained. “In this film, Scottie's character is divorced, and while her ex-husband is still in the picture [because of their daughter], he’s settled down with someone else. So, there’s some mother and daughter talks about handling a new family dynamic. My character Mac is a widower, so we do cover some different topics to the traditional Hallmark fare. But I think what it covers is important because these are things that families really deal with.
