Four years ago Rukiya Bernard went on what she thought was just another audition. It was for a Hallmark Channel movie, and little did she realize just how important it would turn out to be. The film was One Winter Weekend (2018), and she was thrilled to land the role of Megan, the best friend of Cara (Taylor Cole), whose tandem love stories proved so popular it spawned a sequel, One Winter Proposal (2019) and now a threequel, One Perfect Wedding, completing the trilogy. "It's just fantastic," Bernard (pictured at top) beamed when MediaVillage recently caught up with her. "I had no idea what this was going to be when I initially auditioned for it. As an actor you pump out so many auditions, so this was just one of many and I did it with one of my friends. We actually had a couple of auditions that day. Afterwards it was like, ‘So, okay, that was great.' You don't really think too much about it.
