Viv Leacock And Kellie Martin Hint At Hailey Dean Revival

Viv Leacock in formal

Viv Leacock has been a familiar face on Hallmark since the early 2010s, gaining popularity for his role in the Hailey Dean Mysteries franchise. Leacock shared his experience of working with Kellie Martin on the series, highlighting their instant connection over a mutual love for Lethal Weapon.

The duo's on-screen chemistry translated into a strong off-screen friendship, with Leacock expressing his desire for a potential revival of the Hailey Dean Mysteries films. He fondly referred to Martin as 'Auntie Kellie' in his household, emphasizing the familial bond they share.

Leacock's latest project, 'Legend of the Lost Locket,' sees him portraying Sheriff Marcus, aiding a British antiques dealer in a quest to find a mystical locket. The film, premiering on April 13, has sparked discussions about a potential sequel, with Leacock and his co-star Natasha Burnett expressing enthusiasm for future collaborations.

Burnett revealed that the film was crafted to allow Leacock to tap back into his detective persona from Hailey Dean Mysteries, incorporating elements of humor and cultural differences between British and American English into the storyline.

As fans eagerly anticipate the premiere of 'Legend of the Lost Locket,' the possibility of a crossover between Leacock's Sheriff Marcus and Martin's Hailey Dean character remains an exciting prospect. The film is set to air on Hallmark Channel, offering viewers a delightful blend of mystery, romance, and humor.
