Hawthorn Doyle posted this following photo to Instagram while filming, writing, “It takes a village and this is a really good one.”

She also took pictures with animals and wrote, “Let’s see if we can get these guys in the movie!”

And here’s a behind-the-scenes look at Matter and Lefevre.

The synopsis for the film reads: “Tess Delaney (Lefevre) receives the surprising news from estate executive Damhnaic McAuley (Matter) that she has inherited half an apple orchard from the father she never knew and has a half sister named Isabel (Helena Marie). , ‘My Perfect Landing’) that she knew nothing about. When Tess visits the orchard and connects with her new family, she discovers that the orchard is deeply in debt. Using her knowledge as an antiques expert, Tess and Isabel try to unravel the mystery of their grandmother’s “treasure” that could hold the key to saving the orchard. And in the process, Tess eventually finds a new understanding of herself.”

The novel The Apple Orchard, published in 2013 by bestselling author Susan Wiggs, serves as the inspiration for this adaptation. The Apple Orchard is the first book in a trilogy entitled the Bella Vista Chronicles. In 2016, the author made an announcement on her blog about the film being grabbed by Hallmark.

Wiggs wrote: “IT HAPPENS. The Apple Orchard becomes a movie. Oh dear! Tess, Dominic, Isabel, Annelise, Magnus… they all come to life. My Bella Vista Pinterest boards are full of images I collected while writing The Apple Orchard and its accompanying book The Beekeeper’s Ball.”

Canadian-born Rachelle Lefevre plays Tess in the film. Earlier this year, Lefevre first appeared on the Hallmark Channel in the original movie “Moriah’s Lighthouse.”

According to her bio, she has starred in numerous TV shows and movies. In addition, she has found the opportunity to pursue her passion for independent cinema during breaks from working on television projects. She has appeared in films with an impressive roster of major male stars, including Paul Giamatti, Channing Tatum, Jason Statham, James Franco, Ryan Phillipe and Matt Dillon.

She shows her huge sense of humor in her Instagram posts.

Niall Matter plays Damhnaic. He is incredibly private in his life and doesn’t have much of a social media presence.
