About “Round and Round” Hallmark Movie

  • This movie was written by Tamar Lady. Tamar has just 7 previous writing credits! She wrote “Crashing Through the Snow” for Hallmark back in 2021, as well as a handful of episodes for “Pretty Little Liars,” “Hart of Dixie,” and “General Hospital: Night Shift.”
  • Stacey N. Harding directed. She has 12 directing credits including… “AMISH STUD: The Eli Weaver Story” starring Luke Macfarlane. For Hallmark she’s directed Hearts in the Game, “Love, Classified,” “Christmas Sail,” and one of the “Mystery 101” movies. Additionally, she has worked on “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” as First Asst. Director, a reboot of “Charmed” and, wait for it… “UnReal.”

  • Vic Michaelis plays Rachel. She has 24 acting credits which include a lot of shorts and videos but has also been in episodes of “Bless this Mess,” “Upload,” the reboot of “Charmed” and a sketch comedy series called “CollegeHumor Originals.”
  • Bryan Greenberg plays Zach. He’s probably best known for his role as Jake on One Tree Hill but his other 47 acting credits include ABC’s “October Road,” “How to Make it in America” on HBO, “The Mindy Project,” “Bride Wars,” “Friends with Benefits” and “Prime” (one of my favorite movies!). Upcoming for Bryan is a thriller he wrote, directed and starred in called “Junction” – which also stars his wife, Jamie Chung and former One Tree Hill Sophia Bush.
  • Rick Hoffman plays Rachel’s dad Stan. Hoffman has been in a lot! He has 65 acting credits including “Billions,” 134 episodes of “Suits,” “Ballers,” “Samantha Who?” and so many more. 
  • David Attar plays terrible boyfriend Adam. Now David might be the only actor who has previously been in a Hallmark movie. We’ve seen him in “Guiding Emily” “Field Day” “Unexpected Grace” “A Fabled Holiday” “Autumn in the City” and “Nikki & Nora: Sister Slueths. ”
