Lacey Chabert on Candace Bure’s exit after ‘lead change’

Hallmark star Lacey Chabert sat down with vulture for an in-depth interview, including a look back at Candace Cameron Bure’s departure from the network for a leadership role at Great American Family. Could Chabert leave Hallmark as well, or does she plan to stay with it? Here’s what she revealed.

Chabert shared her perspective on the leadership change that Bure referenced

in a (n Interview with the Wall Street Journal, Bure didn’t want to give too many details about why she left Hallmark. All she said was, “It’s basically a very different network than when I started because of the leadership change.” Bure has since assumed an executive role at Great American Family, of which former The Hallmark Channel CEO Bill Abbott is the CEO.

When asked Vulture Chabert about Bure’s testimony, Chabert said she was pleased with Hallmark.

She said: “Every change I’ve felt has embraced our creative ideas. And it’s my responsibility to the audience that continues to watch my films that I give the best I have to offer. That’s always my mission. I will never give up what Hallmark means to me, it’s all about the heart. I don’t think there are any plans for that to change any time soon.”

Vulture asked if Great American Family tried to “poach” her, but Chabert simply said, “I’m at Hallmark and I work for them. I’m so sorry, but I have to leave it at that.”

She also didn’t say much about the stars who have left Hallmark, merely noting that she wishes everyone the best.

“You know what, I wish everyone the best. I really can’t comment further other than that I care about everyone involved,” Chabert replied.

She also revealed if she plans to stay at Hallmark

During her interview, Vulture asked if she planned to stay at Hallmark.

Chabert replied, “I see myself as a lifesaver as long as I’m inspired by the stories and as long as they have me. I have ideas for 50 more. I hope this is just the beginning.”

Chabert just starred in Hallmark’s Christmas movie, Haul Out the Holly.

Her next project with the network is a sequel to trilogies that follow on from last year’s original Wedding Veil trilogy.

in a (n Interview with Jimmy FallonChabert first announced that she was directing three new films for The Wedding Veil franchise.

“Autumn Reeser and Alison Sweeney and I, we’ll be back with three more ‘Wedding Veils,'” she told Fallon in November. “…We’re filming the last one right now. We’re actually going to Greece this weekend to film the third one. But Ali is the lead-in. And we’re really excited to bring these characters back to life. Because the movies always end with a kiss, they fall in love. And now let’s see what happened after that. There could be babies, the friendships are deeper.”

The first films were a great success for Hallmark. According to numbers from ShowBuzzDaily“The Wedding Veil” drew 3.394 million live viewers and garnered a .29 in the 18-49 demographic (and .39 specifically for women in the 18-49 demographic). Those live numbers were higher than the top 10 Hallmark films of 2021. “The Wedding Veil” also beat “Christmas at Castle Heart” with 3.394 million to the Christmas film’s 3.31 million live viewers.

All three Wedding Veil films maintained their top 10 spots after Hallmark’s Christmas films aired. The first part of the trilogy is the second most watched Hallmark film of 2022 (in terms of live viewers/same day) behind Three Wise Men & a Baby, which took first place.

The first new Wedding Veil movie premieres Saturday, January 7th.
