Natalie Hall made her Hallmark Channel debut in 2011's Love's Christmas Journey and was last seen on the network in 2012's The Seven Year Hitch. Now, after a lengthy sabbatical, she's back in A Winter Princess, part of Hallmark's Winterfest programming event. "After The Seven Year Hitch with Darin Brooks, I moved back to New York for many years and did theater," Hall said when MediaVillage asked about her lengthy absence. "I hadn't done a Hallmark movie since and I honestly love working with Hallmark. They like strong, independent, career-driven women and that's something I've always respected and admired. They're one of the networks that has always done that, but I just got busy with other stuff and I am so happy to be back.
