Hallmark’s ‘Autumn’s Gift’ Begins Filming in British Columbia

The filming of Hallmark’s ‘Autumn’s Gift’ will begin on April 29 in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. Mike Rohl is directing the movie, starring Ashley Williams and Hrothgar Mathews. The plot revolves around a woman struggling to get along with her difficult neighbors after moving to a new condo in Pittsburgh. Her life takes a turn when she meets the handsome building supervisor.

Rohl’s recent directorial works include ‘Bringing Christmas Home,’ in which a professor of military history collaborates with an antique store owner to trace the original owner of a historic WWII uniform and the love letters tucked in its pockets. He also helmed ‘The Cases of Mystery Lane,’ which follows Alden and Birdie Case as they embark on a quest to preserve the mystery in their lives as the former pursues investigative classes, while the latter holds vital clues to solve one of his cases. The filmmaker’s credits extend to ‘Married by Mistake,’ depicting Riley and Nate’s accidental marriage after a night of revelry.

Williams recently starred in the romantic comedy ‘Notes of Autumn’ as Ellie Matthews, a pianist who has set aside her passion to work at a hotel. The actress portrayed Kaitlyn Morrison in ‘Five More Minutes: Moments Like These,’ a Christmas tale inspired by Scotty McCreery’s song “Five More Minutes,” which centers on a young widow’s holiday wish that gets granted unexpectedly, compelling her to return to her former home for the holidays.

Mathews portrayed Ned Yost in the series ‘When Calls the Heart’ and Mayor Bob Truman in ‘Legend of the Lost Locket.’ Additionally, he took on the role of George the Bartender in the mystery drama ‘The Island Between Tides’ and Edwin Collar in ‘Motherland: Fort Salem.’

The ensemble cast also features Linda Kash, Paul McGillion, Paul Moniz de Sa, Amy Goodmurphy, Nisreen Slim, Denalda Williams, and Rryla McIntosh. Furthermore, Angela Nisheeta, Jake Guy, John Ennis Graham, and Ava Johnson round out the cast.

Hulu’s ‘Under the Bridge’ and the historical drama series ‘Shōgun’ most recently utilized British Columbia as their backdrop.
