Alison Sweeney previews her fourth installment of her Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series: CHRONICLE MYSTERIES: THE DEEP END
Soap Opera Digest: You’re on movie No. 4 of this series. What have you learned in the process of making them?
Alison Sweeney: I think what’s really fun about the fourth movie, different from the first one, is that we included a lot more of the personal relationships and took the opportunity to really kind of actually bring Alex and Drew a little closer together and focus our story a little more on the development of that relationship. As fun and important as the mystery is, we certainly get a chance to see more of Alex, who Alex is, what her backstory is. And we see it a bit through Drew’s eyes, him really getting to see that side of Alex.
Digest: What kind of feedback have you gotten from fans about the series and also the Alex and Drew relationship?
Sweeney: It’s so awesome to be able to see the fans’ reaction and how much they enjoy all of the characters. For me, as much as, obviously, I feel a special attachment to Alex, I feel very attached to all of it. So when people love or quote any line from any of the movies or they love Chuck or comment on Eileen, I feel like a proud parent. It’s all so personal to me. The fans’ reaction has been awesome and so rewarding. I really love their enthusiasm for the story. We got a lot of positive feedback. People love the idea of a podcast and that device as a storytelling tool. So that’s been really fun. And the humor that’s provided by Chuck and Eileen has been well received. I enjoy all of it.
Digest: What does it mean to you that you’re on your fourth movie of a series that you created?
