Giles Panton shared the good news in reply to a tweet where a fan said they wanted to see him as the lead someday.

Lisa Currin White wrote on Twitter: “@G_Panton You poor guy 🙁 I’m watching you in #MyFavoriteWedding & I hate that @maggielawson is going to dump you for @paulgreenemedia. Just like @erinkrakow did for @tyler_hynes in #ItWasAlwaysYou

Fans are really excited about the news. One fan wrote “NO WAY!!! #teamgilesgetsthegirl” and Panton responded with three happy emojis.

He replied to another tweet, writing: “My co-star is the fantastic @ChelseaHobbs.”

On Twitter, Ho! Ho! Holiday Viewing! elaborated on which movie Panton was talking about. It’s not known yet if this is a Hallmark movie or not, but @SleepyKittyPaw says it appears to be destined for Hallmark, but we may need to wait until July for confirmation.

The movie is called The Christmas Book, and Panton is starring opposite Chelsea Hobbs. The movie is directed by David I. Strasser and just wrapped in early April.

Strasser said this was his 10th feature-length movie to direct. Here’s the post Strasser shared when the movie wrapped:
