The Hallmark Channel’s newest spring movie, Right in Front of Me, premieres Saturday, April 17 at 9 p.m. Eastern. The movie stars Janel Parrish and Marco Grazzini. Here’s a look at where the movie was filmed and the cast who brought it to life.
‘Right in Front of Me’ Was Filmed in Canada
Right in Front of Me was filmed in Canada, including the Vancouver region. Parrish shared these photos in March taken while she was filming in Vancouver, British Columbia, for the movie.
Parrish revealed that this is the first Hallmark movie with two Asian leads.
During quarantine in February before filming, she joked that the self-isolation was turning her into having more “grandma-like” tendencies.
Quarantine hot take: self isolation has refined my “grandma-like tendencies” as @annacathcart calls it…without human interaction, I have fallen asleep at roughly 9:30 pm and woken up roughly 6 am every day 🥳 pic.twitter.com/obrqH3oPfn
