Being able to not only star in a Hallmark Christmas movie but also to be an executive producer has been a dream come true for Erin Cahill.

After the success of the time travel movie A Timeless Christmas, she is eager to talk about her latest Hallmark film, Every Time a Bell Rings.

It is the heartfelt story of three sisters who reunite in their hometown of Natchez, Mississippi, during Christmas after several years of being apart. They are surprised – and delighted – to discover that their late father had planned one last scavenger hunt for them to find the family’s wooden wishing bell. This was a beloved annual tradition when they were young.

While they revisit favorite childhood places that hold special meaning for them, and along the way, they rekindle their sisterly bond and each learns an important lesson about what they want in life…and love. The movie is about family, adoption, love, loss, and finding our place.

Erin Cahill, whose other recent Hallmark movies include Last Vermont Christmas and Sleigh Bells Ring, has forged close bonds with many of her co-stars. Her acting career was launched in 2001 when she was cast as Jen, the Pink Ranger in the series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Time Force. Since then, she has starred as regular or recurring characters in ABC’s Red Widow and TNT’s Saving Grace.

“I am interested in anything involving communication, connection, and joy,” Cahill exclusively told Monsters & Critics. “For me, it is about creating something that will ultimately end in more joy in the human experience. The holidays are all about escapism and fun and I love that, but if I can tell a story that truly ignites something real in people, that would be the greatest gift for me.”
