It’s a hallmark moment for JoAnna Garcia Swisher…
The 41-year-old Cuban and Spanish American actress has been cast in Hallmark’s new Ireland-set rom-com As Luck Would Have It.
The Sweet Magnolias actress will star opposite Allen Leech in the film directed by Clare Niederpruem.
“JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Allen Leech are both immensely talented actors and we are delighted to welcome them to the Hallmark Channel family,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Crown Media Family Networks. “Between its charming leads and lushly-authentic Irish setting, viewers are sure to be captivated by this sweet, lighthearted romance.”
Lindsey (Swisher) travels to Ireland to acquire land that is perfect for a resort. She decides to enter the town’s matchmaking festival to prove her investment and win over a handsome local (Leech).
The all-new movie, which will be part of Hallmark Channel’s “Spring Fling” programming event this spring, has kicked off production with on-location filming in Ireland.
Swisher also appeared in Once Upon a Time, The Internship, A-List and American Pie 2.
